IPP Application

The University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Division of Periodontics, welcomes candidates for the Implant Periodontal Prosthodontics Fellowship program. Individuals who have completed U.S. postgraduate training in Periodontics or Prosthodontics are eligible for this 12-month intensive program, which includes an anticipated 24 hours of weekly clinical time.

The goal of the Fellowship is to train individuals with established scholarship, clinical, and technical abilities to encourage them to deliver the highest quality of advanced patient care in Periodontal Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry.

For those who have completed their post-graduate training in one specialty, the Fellowship will provide the opportunity to cross-train in Implant Prosthodontics and Periodontics. Periodontal residents gain experience utilizing prosthetics, while prosthodontics residents develop surgical skills.

The lecture and research curriculum as well as clinical experience provides fellows with a stronger foundation in the interdisciplinary management of patients with more complex treatment needs, with emphasis on multidisciplinary holistic patient diagnosis, surgical and prosthetic treatment planning and execution of advanced implant cases.

Prosthodontics fellows will have the opportunity to team up closely with periodontal fellows to share their expertise and experience with each other.

The University of Maryland welcomes American and International trained applicants. International candidates are required to provide evidence of an equivalent level of training in the dental field of Periodontics or Prosthodontics, which will be evaluated by the application committee.

Fellowship training is guided by a faculty with Board-certified specialists - eager to impart their advanced surgical and restorative knowledge base in the framework of evidence-based literature.  Fellowship training will take place in the state-of-the-art Periodontics Postgraduate Clinic that is equipped with the latest diagnostic imaging equipment, surgical microscopes, full surgical suites, sedation capability, and a dedicated support staff. A competitive fellowship salary is offered.

Accepted candidates who are not U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or on a visa status authorized for enrollment to the program, must obtain an F1-OPT visa. In addition, accepted candidates must also obtain a Maryland Limited Dental License.
