Implant Dentistry Education at a Predoctoral Level - Diversity at a Worldwide Level
Brodala, Nadine / Sukotjo, Cortino / Yuan, Judy Chia-Chun
Implant dentistry has become a predictable treatment to restore esthetics, form and oral function. The placement and restoration of dental implants has increased significantly worldwide. Therefore, the need to provide implant education to dental students is paramount. The purpose of this paper was to describe the journey of implant programs at dental schools on several continents. Implant treatment varies from country to country and continent to continent. From this review, it appears that predoctoral implant programs in North America (US) have a more structured curriculum (preclinical and clinical). The students in these programs provide more treatment modalities compared to other parts of the world. A substantial effort is needed to improve the implant curriculum for dental students in Asia, where the majority of the world's population is located.
