Implant dentistry is a unique specialty that goes beyond the scope of general dentistry. It encompasses surgical, periodontal, prosthetic, and long-term maintenance. Residents within Jacksonville University’s Comprehensive Oral Implantology Program are taught the revolutionary reconstruction of the entire oral masticatory process – bone, soft tissue, and teeth – utilizing implants and dental restorations.
Jacksonville University offers a Master of Science in Dentistry and Certificate in Comprehensive Oral Implantology, also known as the Alfred L. “Duke” Heller & O. Hilt Tatum Comprehensive Oral Implantology Residency Program. This full-time 36-month residency program combines 90 credits of clinical training with didactic online courses. Supported by the Comprehensive Oral Implantology Residency Foundation (COIRF), this program is recognized as using the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) post-graduate core curriculum for dental implantology. Residents receive extensive training focused on clinical proficiency in surgery, prosthetics, and maintenance as related to dental implants and comprehensive oral implantology.
