Experience is gained in diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning, treatment, maintenance and re-evaluation of routine and complex periodontitis and implant/peri-implantitis patients. The focus in the 3rd year is on the treatment of advanced/complex patients requiring complex, comprehensive and/or interdisciplinary treatment as well as advanced plastic periodontal surgery.
