USC University of Southern California

Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC

Prosthodontics

The 36-month course in prosthodontics teaches didactic and clinical skills leading to competency in the specialized practice of prosthodontics. The program provides a basic science foundation for clinical and technical skills, incorporating studies in physical diagnosis, anatomy, oral pathology, pharmacology, and oral biology.

Since proficiency in all elements of prosthodontics is required, equal emphasis is placed on fixed, removable, and implant prosthodontics. Periodontally compromised patients are frequently encountered, so the program is allied with the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry’s advanced program in periodontics; integrated patient care is stressed.
