Objectives and Overview
The two and a half days of literature review and update cover:
  • Current concepts - particularly as they relate to management of patients with advanced periodontal disease and dental implant therapy
  • New developments and a general update in periodontics
  • Systemic diseases' influences on periodontal disease, patient management, and periodontal medicine
  • Management of office emergencies and diagnosis of oral lesions

Consider registering for the 2½ day literature review course if you are a practicing periodontist looking for a general update in periodontics.

The 2½-day course plus mock oral board exams are specifically designed to help periodontists prepare for the oral exam (Part II) for certification by the American Board of Periodontology. The course begins with two and a half days of comprehensive literature review and update followed by one and a half days of mock oral board exams.

    Oral board exam preparation is more important than ever. For the past five years, the average annual passing rate for the oral exam was lower than the average annual passing rate for the qualifying (written) exam.

    This course is not approved, recommended, or endorsed by the American Board of Periodontology and thus should not be construed as an official guide in the preparation for any certifying board examination. The statements, ideas, and opinions expressed in this course are those of the individual participants and in no way should reflect the statements, ideas, and opinions of any specialty certifying organization.
