Our program is focused on the training of a specialist in periodontics with technical skills and an in-depth knowledge of the sciences. We seek to evaluate and control all the variables present when doing any clinical procedure in the periodontal patient. In addition, we train the student in teaching and research, as a complement to their clinical preparation. With the guidance of our teachers we allow the periodontics resident to make decisions based on facts and evidence and to practice clinical evaluation in a scientific manner.

Finally, we want to deliver to society leaders who direct their specialty and project the philosophy of the CES University at a national and international level.
