Prosthodontics MSD

The Program in Prosthodontics is a thirty-six-month course of study, commencing in July of each year. The time spent in the program may vary because it is designed to encompass the three main areas of prosthodontics, namely, removable, fixed and maxillofacial prosthodontics. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be awarded a certificate in prosthodontics, will be eligible to take the American Board of Prosthodontics examination, and receive a Masters of Science in Dentistry Degree. The thirty-six-month course of study includes the following; (1) seminars in clinically oriented basic-science courses; (2) instruction in advanced clinical procedures; (3) clinical-science courses, which include occlusion, oral medicine, oral pathology, periodontic-prosthetic, prosthetics, oral facial pain, and other multidisciplinary courses; (4) research opportunities in the basic sciences or clinical areas; (5) selective courses to prepare for a career in academic dentistry; and (6) multiple other courses that will allow the student to help tailor the program. Up to three applicants are selected each year, and candidates should possess competitive academic credentials and have demonstrated an interest in prosthodontics. Additional experience beyond dental school and submission of the results of the Graduate Record Examination strengthen the applicant’s credentials. A personal site visit is required for the benefit of the applicant and the faculty. Completed American Dental Education Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) applications should be received by September 15.
