Program Description

The School of Dentistry offers an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program that provides clinical experiences in all phases of general dentistry. The clinical training is complemented by a graduate didactic core curriculum that provides interdisciplinary education in the specialties of dentistry, and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning.

The AEGD program is an intensive 12-month clinical care program. The program requires successful passing of the clinical and didactic course work resulting in a certificate from the Marquette University Graduate School. Completion of 30 credits is required for obtaining the AEGD certificate. No thesis is offered.

To qualify for the AEGD program stipend, applicants must be graduates of U.S. dental schools. Graduates of foreign dental schools must have the appropriate Visa/citizenship status (i.e. F-1, Permanent Resident or U.S. citizen) to qualify for a stipend.
