  Orthodontics
Through the Advanced Program for International Dentists in Orthodontics, participants will learn to recognize and care for patients requiring orthodontic therapy. They will develop the clinical skills to achieve, through orthodontic treatment, esthetic and functionally acceptable occlusion for patients with moderately severe malocclusion. Complex and interesting cases will be presented such as orthognathic surgery, and participants will work with others in a multi-disciplinary forum.
  Prosthodontics
NYU College of Dentistry established the Advanced Program for International Dentists in Prosthodontics more than ten years ago and graduates of this program hail from over 28 countries. The program includes seminars and clinical practice in all aspects of Prosthodontics with at least 24 hours of patient contact and clinical treatment per week. Cases may involve crown and bridge, complete and partial dentures as well as implant prosthodontics.
  Endodontics
The aim of the Advanced Programs for International Dentists in Endodontics is to increase the participant's understanding of the biological basis of endodontic theory and practice. Participants will learn to diagnose pulpal and perapical pathology and successfully treat patients with endodontic needs. The role of new technology in endodontics will be explored and students will be aptly prepared with all the latest skills and knowledge.
  Pediatric Dentistry
In 1949, the NYU College of Dentistry's Department of Pediatric Dentistry became the first formal pediatric department in the U.S. Within the Advanced Programs for International Dentists, participants are taught along the core themes of disease prevention and intervention. Students will further develop their ability to treat common and unusual dental problems in children. In addition, the biological basis, developmental milestones and psychological and social elements necessary to manage children in the dental setting will be explored.
  Maxillofacial and Corrective Jaw Surgery
The Advanced Program for International Dentists in Maxillofacial and Corrective Jaw Surgery includes two overlapping divisions: Maxillofacial and Corrective Jaw Surgery and Advanced Orthodontics. Participants will focus on the areas of Craniofacial and Dentofacial Deformity and Cleft Palate. The curriculum reinforces and advances surgeons' and orthodontists' expertise in the management of patients with dentofacial deformities, cleft lip and palate, microtia, dental deformities and facial esthetics.
  Periodontics
The Advanced Programs for International Dentists in Periodontics focuses on the evaluation, recognition, care and prevention of conditions that predispose patients to periodontal disease. Students will learn to evaluate the periodontium and understand the criteria and techniques for treatment. In addition, they will learn to perform scaling and root planning, including surgical access.
  Esthetics
Although not recognized as a specialty, there are so many available procedures and treatments that without investing significant time in this area of concentration, it is virtually impossible to gain the expertise and knowledge necessary to become a true "Esthetic Dentist." Recognizing this important need, a new program in Esthetics was created as part of the Advanced Programs for International Dentists. Students will be exposed to the latest technologies, including lasers and CAD-CAM, as well as intensive training in the use of the wide range of composite and ceramic options currently available.
  Implant Dentistry
The objective of the Advanced Programs for International Dentists in Implant Dentistry is to provide participants with a thorough understanding and clinical competence in the diagnosis and treatment of endosseous and other types of dental implants. Participants will have the opportunity to successfully complete the diagnosis, planning and treatment of assigned clinical cases.
