Periodontal and Implant Microsurgery
The microsurgery training course for the Periodontics Residents at LSU Dental School is the oldest training of its kind in the United States. Though this innovative course, the residents develop the skills to use the operating microscope along with the use of microsurgical instruments and suturing. The primary aim of microsurgery is to minimize tissue trauma while maximizing tissue preservation and reconstruction. This is the only program with instructors trained by the father periodontal microsurgery, Dr. Dennis Shanelec.
