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 dental biomaterials program is a non-accredited 2-year program leading to a master’s degree.
Visit the Department Web Page for more detailed program information.
Applicants to dental biomaterials are encouraged to have their complete application submitted by February 1 to be considered for the fall entry class. Spring semester entry is possible every other year (even years). The program director notifies admitted students regarding the starting date for their program.
Teaching assistantships in the Dental Biomaterials program are not typically available. Research assistantships are occasionally available but rely on current funding status of program faculty. Private scholarships may be available. U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to apply for need-based federal aid (loans) to help fund their educational expenses.
