Prosthodontics

About the programme 
This programme is a full-time, two-year international Master's programme in Prosthodontics with clinical training. The programme is offered to certified dentists with a minimum of two years clinical experience after graduation who seek to obtain research experience and improve their theoretical knowledge and clinical skills in oral prosthodontics.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of the international Master's programme in Prosthodontics, which includes a research project and the defence of a thesis (2nd cycle), participants will be awarded a Master's Degree in Dental Science (MDSc). Clinically, students will develop clinical competence and theoretical knowledge to be able to assess, diagnose and treat patients with moderately complex need for prosthetic replacement, to restore lost function and esthetics.

Course components

After introductory courses in comprehensive dentistry and research methodology, an individual research project is the basis for the Master's thesis.  Focused theoretical and clinical training in Prosthodontics is obtained through a combination of seminars, lectures, individual assignments, and preclinical/observational clinical sessions.

The research project is an independent work by the student, supervised by a senior researcher in the field.

Areas of focus include: an overview of the biological basis of implants; dental materials; theoretical background to different treatment modalities and their prognosis; diagnostic procedures and prosthetic treatments; and removable as well as fixed reconstructions and dental materials. Students will have the opportunity to observe a variety of patients under the close supervision and guidance of a diverse and experienced faculty comprised of top researchers and practitioners in the field of Prosthodontics. Students are exposed to complex and interesting cases, in a forum designed to enhance their ability to plan and execute Prosthodontic treatment.
