Dr. E. Dwayne Karateew Joins U of IL at Chicago College of Dentistry
Dr. E. Dwayne Karateew recently joined the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry as Clinical Associate Professor for Postgraduate Periodontics in the Department of Periodontics.
Dr. Karateew explained, “The first is to bring my clinical experience in both Periodontics and Prosthodontics into the graduate clinical environment. The new Commission on Dental Accreditation directives mandate that Periodontal residents become proficient in the provisional restoration of osseointegrated implants, and my role is to deliver this education.”
He noted that his second function “is in clinical research. This will be potentially in collaboration with other institutions in multi-center studies, with our corporate partners and in guiding our residents through their Master’s thesis research projects.”
With nearly 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Karateew’s goal is to impart knowledge to Periodontics residents “so that I can watch them surpass my pinnacles,” he said. “This is the greatest compliment any educator can receive.
“Having a little laugh along the trip is an added bonus,” Dr. Karateew added.
Dr. Karateew earned his B.Sc. in Microbiology from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver; his DDS from the Columbia University School of Dental Medicine in New York City; his Certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry from Columbia; and Certificates in Periodontics and Fixed Prosthodontics from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
He previously taught at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Washington, and the University of British Columbia. Dr. Karateew has offered major presentations in the US, Canada, and in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
