To evaluate the anatomy, physiology, and interrelation of gingival and mucosal structures in periodontal disease and health. To
understand the gingival deformity classifications, to define the deformities on the patient and to plan their surgical treatment. To be
able to apply advanced mucogingival surgical techniques (such as connective tissue graft applications, sliding flap techniques, and
tunnel technique) when necessary. Evaluating various donor sites for advanced mucogingival surgeries and choosing the most
proper donor site. To learn micro-surgery applications within the framework of minimal invasive approach and to apply them on
the patients. To determine the appropriate maintance program for the patient after the surgeries, by evaluating the treatment results.
To be able to apply non-surgical methods in patients for whom surgical applications are contraindicated, and if necessary, to learn
