Welcome to the dental biomaterials program

The M.S. program in dental biomaterials is offered to individuals who want to pursue advanced study in dental biomaterials. A major component of the program is conducting a research project culminating in the successful completion of a master’s thesis and defense.

The curriculum is structured to provide a broad overview of the use of materials science in dentistry.

Courses cover topics such as:

  • Metallurgy
  • Ceramics
  • Polymers
  • Mechanical behavior
  • Cements
  • Experimental techniques as they apply to dental biomaterials

Opportunities in teaching dental biomaterials and training in methods, techniques and instrumentation used in dental biomaterials research are also extended to students.
