The fellows are trained in all phases of maxillofacial prosthetics. Areas of comprehensive patient care and study include all phases of dental and maxillofacial prosthetic intervention (diagnosis, treatment, follow-up) for intraoral and extraoral rehabilitation of patients with acquired and/or developmental maxillofacial defects.

In addition, the fellow with be involved in the planning, placement, and restoration of endosseous implants placed in restored jaws for patients who have undergone segmental mandibulectomies for various oncologic diseases and osteoradionecrosis of the jaw.
