Visiting Scholar Program in Periodontics
The Department of Periodontics offers an individualized professional development program for dentists and dental specialists. The main objective of the UI Visiting Scholar Professional Development Program in Periodontics is to provide an outstanding and customized professional experience for dentists or dental specialists who are interested in advancing their knowledge in Periodontics and Oral Implantology. Individuals participating in this program will have the opportunity to attend periodontal seminars and lectures, observe periodontal faculty members and/or residents in a clinical setting and participate in research-related activities.
Dr. Juan Gonzalez de Buitrago Garcia is the first participant in this new program. Dr. Gonzalez earned his DDS from the University of Granada (Spain) in 2008. After that, he initiated his doctorate studies in the same institution, which he combined with part-time private practice work. He also completed a Periodontics Expert course with Dr. Mariano Sanz at the University Complutense of Madrid in 2010. His research interests are in the area of periodontal and alveolar bone regeneration.
