In addition to PhD programmes in 14 different research areas, and two specialist programmes, ACTA offers the following professional postgraduate programme:

Postgraduate programme in Oral Health Sciences (MSc)
This three-year fulltime programme has evolved out of four dental differentiation programmes that have run for many years at ACTA. In addition to joint courses comprising the development of research skills, pharmacology, radiology and psychology, the Oral Health Sciences Programme has the following graduation profiles:

  • Endodontology
  • Oral Implantology
  • Oral Kinesiology (TMD/orofacial pain, dental sleep medicine, and tooth wear)
  • Periodontology

These graduation profiles are accredited by the relevant (international) societies and federations. A joint Master's degree is awarded by the University of Amsterdam and the VU University. 

A fifth graduation profile is Paediatric Dentistry. This profile has not yet been accredited as an MSc. The inclusion of this profile into the MSc programme is pending. Students will receive a diploma in Paediatric Dentistry which is recognized by the professional body.
