Degrees Offered



Program Description

The School of Dentistry offers graduate programs in dental biomaterials, and the ADA-accredited programs in advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD), endodontics, orthodontics, and prosthodontics. These programs can be modified to allow conjoint interdisciplinary graduate work to be undertaken in any other unit of the university, and a master of science or doctoral degree can be obtained through an appropriate graduate degree-granting department of the university or through the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. Faculty for each dental graduate program are drawn both from full-time Dental School faculty and from practicing specialists in the field who serve as adjunct faculty.

The AEGD program is an ADA-accredited one-year clinical program. Upon successful completion of all clinical and didactic requirements, a certificate is issued. There is no tuition for the 1-year program and residents receive stipends. For candidates who have successfully completed the AEGD certificate program, an optional 1-year fellowship program may be available. Fellows do not receive a stipend and do not pay tuition.
