Mestrado Ortodontia

 

About the program/cycle of studies

The Master's Degree in Orthodontics aims to develop and deepen themes addressed during the course of Dentistry, providing new professional skills by way of the study of cases and the implementation of clinical treatments. Students experience various techniques and therapeutic approaches regarding functional and corrective orthodontics and fixed orthodontics.

Other skills will be developed, including those related to scientific and clinical research. Thus, the Masters not only provides indispensable clinical training, but also addresses teaching and research in orthodontics, opening avenues to the possible application of the Specialization Course in Orthodontics.

Therefore, within the spirit of the Bologna process, professional and academic skills will be greatly increased, as well as those resulting from European guidance and those set out by the Dental Association in regards to continuing training throughout the career.
