Department of Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry pertaining to the rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. The primary role of the Department of Prosthodontics is the training of pre-doctoral and graduate students to restore and replace damaged and missing teeth.
 
Our department offers a comprehensive advanced education program in Prosthodontics. Progressive clinical, laboratory, and didactic experience in fixed, removable, maxillofacial, and implant Prosthodontics as well as interrelations with other medical and dental specialties are emphasized.
 Graduate Programs in Prosthodontics:
The Department of Graduate and Postgraduate Prosthodontics has the responsibility of teaching both Graduate and Postgraduate Prosthodontics. The Postgraduate Certificate Program in Prosthodontics (a full-time 36-month residency program) has a nationally first-class reputation for its patient care, teaching and research activities. This program teaches didactic and clinical skills leading to competency in the specialized practice of prosthodontics.  Our Department is center for multidisciplinary treatment of patients with comprehensive needs (Amelogenesis Imperfecta, Ectodermal Displasia, Microstomia, severe wear,…). Very experienced Prosthodontists provide didactic and clinical exposure to maxillofacial prosthetics.  The program also covers all phases of esthetic dentistry and training in CAD/CAM technology. Patient care activities are supplemented by seminars and case presentations. Contact with Prosthodontic problems and contemporary treatment modalities is the goal of the courses included in the curriculum (Tables a, B, and C). A strength of the program is its close interaction with the other postgraduate dental specialty programs.
 This program is designed to meet requirements for the Iranian Board of Prosthodontics. A certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the program. The option of pursuing a MS or PhD is also available for International Applicants.
