Department and Faculty
The Department of Dental Specialties at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provides coordinated care for patients who require specialized dental treatment.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic dental specialties faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of dental knowledge. Many have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to these individuals throughout the Periodontics Residency.
Advisers and mentors
You choose a mentor to serve as your advocate in academic, clinical and personal arenas. Academic progress is monitored, and residents with academic and staff potential are identified early and recommended to the department.
Many prominent professors and Mayo Clinic consultants present their work during lectures. Residents are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities to interact with experts from other academic centers and are relieved from clinical assignments to do so.
