Pediatric Dentistry

This program is a full-time, four-year international master's programme in Pediatric Dentistry with clinical speciality training. The programme is offered to dentists seeking to improve their research experience as well as theoretical knowledge and clinical skills in Pediatric Dentistry.


Upon successful completion of the international master's programme in Pediatric Dentistry, which includes a research project and the defence of a thesis, students will be awarded a Master's Degree in Dental Science (MDSc), in Odontology. Learning outcomes of a clinical, theoretical, pedagogical, and scientific nature are assessed throughout the programme. At the end of year four, final fulfilment is examined and the student should demonstrate a high level of knowledge, understanding, and skill through case presentations in writing and orally. A certificate documenting advanced clinical training at Malmö University will be issued.


Students treat selected patients under the close guidance of experienced pediatric dentist specialists and professors.

Course components

After introductory courses in comprehensive dentistry and research methodology, an individual research project is the basis for the master's thesis, while focused specialisation is obtained through a combination of courses, lectures, seminars, and preclinical/clinical work.

The department has a problem-based approach to learning, and encourages self-directed study of pediatric dentistry in theory and practice. Students are exposed to clinical cases with increasing complexity. Collaboration with residents in the national specialisation program is encouraged, and joint seminars with postgraduate students and specialists from other relevant subareas are often offered.
