Diagnostics, indication and treatment planning feature prominently in the Master’s programme. You spend ever more time treating patients and on being able to underpin the treatment choices that you make. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to diagnostics, indication and treatment planning. You will be working under the supervision of lecturers (who are also qualified dentists) and of staff from the clinical departments (Cariology, Endodontics, Periodontics et cetera).
The clinical departments’ close involvement means that the students’ knowledge is constantly being challenged, particularly their knowledge of dentistry. Students are being constantly prompted to think critically and to ask themselves questions. During the final year of the Master’s programme, in the run-up to graduation, you develop greater autonomy in making diagnoses and in formulating and implementing treatment plans. In the final year of the Master’s, you work in a practice as part of a team of dental students and oral hygiene students.

After your Master’s
Once you have finished your Master’s you are a real dentist. If you wish, after the Master’s you can specialize in a particular branch of Dentistry (Periodontics, Endodontics, Paedodontics, Implantology) and focus on specific dental problems. A very small proportion of graduates can be trained as medical specialists (orthodontists or maxillofacial surgeons). You must complete the programme before you can work as a maxillofacial surgeon.
