The world of dental prosthetics is currently undergoing a revolution thanks to the incorporation of digital systems. The evolution of adhesion techniques and the use of new materials has seen this aspect of dentistry evolve even faster.

The UIC's clinical residency programme in prosthetics is based on the need for dentists to constantly stay up to date on the latest knowledge required for dental prosthetics. The course programme will be offered through digital and traditional methods, focusing on new concepts in minimally invasive dentistry, such as restorative methods based on adhesion or the use of new materials that require less tooth reduction, in addition to covering both fixed and removable traditional prosthetics, which are useful in everyday practice.

Clinical sessions will be held to discuss patient cases that will later be treated in the clinic by students, under the tutelage and with support from encouraging professors who are trained in the latest techniques. There will also be theory seminars, which will start by covering basic and traditional concepts related to fixed tooth-supported prosthetics and removable prosthetics. Later, the theory sessions will advance towards more modern concepts including digital technology, adhesive restoration and new materials and techniques used to produce more modern dental prostheses.
