Practical component

  • Every week students will have to manage and treat various periodontal cases
  • Each case will be discussed and planned with the supervisor
  • At the end of the program, each student will be required to complete at least: 
  • 20 implant placements including surgical and prosthetic procedures
  • 25 advanced periodontal cases including surgical procedures, prosthetic and/or orthodontic treatment, and implant placement
  • 100 surgical procedures (access surgery, osseous surgery, muco-gingival procedures, crown lengthening)
  • 5 full documented clinical cases must be presented according to the EFP Board exam

Theoretical component

Research component

Each student will carry out an individual research project, either in basic sciences related to periodontology/implantology or a clinical research project.
