Our students and residents have direct access to outstanding faculty.  We offer a diversity of programs with leaders in healthcare and research.

The majority of our advanced dental education programs lead to a certificate in a specialty field.  Many students opt to simultaneously pursue an academic degree to enhance their research exposure during clinical training.

Some students focus exclusively on their research careers by conducting basic and/or clinical research leading to a masters or doctoral degree.
