The postdoctoral program in Prosthodontics is one of nine recognized specialty programs. It entails three years of postdoctoral training in an ADA accredited graduate education program. The postdoctoral program at the College of Dental Medicine encourages residents to pursue a Master of Science degree concurrently with the Certificate Program. Successful completion of the Certificate Program and the Master in Science Degree requires a minimum of three years of training and successful completion and defense of a Masters’ Thesis.

The postdoctoral program prepares residents for specialized clinical practice, board certification and an academic career. Extensive clinical and laboratory phases of prosthodontics training are offered in diagnosis and treatment planning, fixed and removable partial dentures, complete dentures, implant prosthodontics, and maxillofacial prosthodontics. This is accomplished in a state of the art clinical environment with access to the vast resources of the College of Dental Medicine and the New York Presbyterian Hospital / Columbia University Medical Center.
