Program Overview

The Advanced Education Program in Periodontics is a course of study leading to the award of a Certificate in Periodontics.  The program provides a comprehensive course of study in clinical and didactic periodontics, satisfying the requirements for eligibility for the American Board of Periodontology.

The program provides the residents with evidence based biological, scientific and clinical information and experiences to diagnose and treat all forms of periodontal disease at a proficient level.  The resident becomes thoroughly familiar with the periodontal literature and receives broad clinical experiences in examination, prognosis determination, and all accepted modes of periodontal therapy.  Residents are encouraged to continue learning experiences after completion of the program by means of the critical review of the literature, active participation in continuing education, leadership in organized dentistry and clinical research.  Hospital dentistry and a varied patient population are achieved through the Augusta University Medical Center and an affiliation with the Veterans Administration Medical Center Outpatient Dental Clinic. This is a stand alone certificate.
