Oral Prosthodontics

This programme is a full-time, four-year international master's programme in Oral Prosthodontics with clinical speciality training. The programme is offered to dentists who seek to improve their research experience as well as theoretical knowledge and clinical skills in oral prosthetic training.


Upon successful completion of the international master's programme in Oral Prosthodontics, which includes a research project and the defence of a thesis, participants will be awarded a Master's Degree in Dental Science (MDSc), in Odontology, and speciality training in Oral Prosthodontic equivalent to a Swedish specialisation degree. Additionally, they will receive board certification in Oral Medicine. 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.


Students treat 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 Oral Prosthodontics.

Course components

After an introductory course in comprehensive dentistry involving all aspects of odontology, a variety of lectures, seminars and clinical sessions as well as independent research work are incorporated into the programme in Oral Prosthodontics.

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. Students are exposed to complex and interesting cases, in a forum designed to enhance their ability to interact successfully with professionals within the same field as well as other medical fields.
