Fellowship program in Implantology
The development of science and technology in dentistry, the inclusion of newer treatment modalities, demands the dental practitioners to constantly update their knowledge in these modalities to fulfil the treatment needs of the populations they serve. Consequently, specialization in Dentistry has occurred as a natural evolutionary process across several disciplines of the dental profession. However, the competencies for the newer treatment modalities is often provided by the industry rather than the educational institutes. The transition toward specialization and adoption of a newer treatment option often presents the specific disciplines with challenging concerns and issues. Creative solutions to these concerns will strengthen the integrity and cohesiveness of the profession. This fellowship program is aimed at providing the dental practitioner a through, systematic and logical exposure to implant dentistry and to provide clinical knowledge and skills of the highest level. Assisted by a very favorable staff-student ratio, where the relationship between student and mentor is direct and highly personalized.
