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 specialty program of orthodontics is clinically and research based, offering a specialty certificate and a master’s degree. Graduates are prepared to handle complex clinical cases and to work effectively with both general dentists and other dental specialists. For all the specialty programs, the master’s degree is required (certificates will not be awarded without the master’s degree). The orthodontics program is a 26.5-month program.
