Jacksonville University is introducing a three-year Master of Science in Dentistry and Certificate in Comprehensive Oral Implantology, supported by the Comprehensive Oral Implantology Residency Foundation and using the American Academy of Implant Dentistry post-graduate core curriculum.

“This offering represents the next in-demand program born from ongoing, open discussions with our health industry partners and colleagues regarding where the market is headed and how Jacksonville University can best meet a very specific need for top-tier education and training,” Jacksonville University President Tim Cost said in a news release.

Named after two of its founders, clinicians, and patrons, the Alfred L. “Duke” Heller & O. Hilt Tatum Comprehensive Oral Implantology Residency Program will offer dentists training focused on proficiency in surgery, prosthetics and maintenance related to dental implants.

The program, part of the Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences, also offers the opportunity to receive an online master’s degree from JU while receiving instruction through a paid, in-person residency at one of several U.S. implant dentistry practices.

The first group of dental residents is expected to begin their training this summer.

Applications are due by April 15. Visit for scholarship information and an online application.
