LouiSiaNa PErio: Continuing Education
Dedicated to Alumni and Residents

The site was originally developed for resident use.  We know the classic perio education is a three year blend of clinical training along with an extensive study of current and historic perio and implant literature. The literature review of scientific papers forms the basis of everything we do in our specialty. This training is extensive and exhaustive and prepares the resident for :successfully passing their board exams, understanding the biologic basis for why procedures work and heal as they do and being able to review new products and techniques with a critical eye such that decisions can be made whether or not to offer these services or products to patients. The mission of the site has expanded. It is offered to our LSU Perio family

  2. To provide an online source of study for periodontists preparing for board examinations and recertifications.
  3. To provide abstracts of current periodontal and implant literature in a journal club format to help keep practicing doctors up to date.
  4. To provide online CE for those completing a short quiz after each journal club.
  5. To provide current residents with an online reference for their practice management class.
  6. To highlight examples of 3rd year residents case work.
