Dentistry

Students often obtain master’s degrees to get specialized education in a certain field. This education may enable them to take on projects and positions with more responsibility and enhances their salary prospects. Students who wish to get doctoral degrees must first get master’s degrees.

What is a Master in Dentistry? Dentistry focuses on oral health: for example, diagnosing, preventing and treating diseases in the oral cavity. Master’s degree students are able to take classes to specialize in fields such as oral implants and oral biology. Students should expect to spend about two years in such programs. Classes include extensive research as well as hands-on practice with dental patients.

The advantages of completing a dentistry program are many. For instance, students improve their research skills and are able to specialize in an area that interests them. They might also gain excellent career opportunities and command higher salaries.

Universities in many countries offer master’s degrees in dentistry. Because of this, students should contact individual programs to ask about costs, or research the schools. Students should always ensure they understand program requirements so they can find the best program for their needs.

Students who complete high-level dentistry degrees may choose to practice as general dentists. Other students get further training in a specialty such as orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, or oral and maxillofacial surgery. Dentists work with patients of all ages, from very young children to senior citizens. Some run their own practices and work alone, while others have partners and/or small staffs. Some work as associate dentists. Many dentists teach college classes and may supervise dental students.

Dentistry students can take classes part time or full time. Although hands-on work is necessary for some of the coursework, many programs provide the option of online learning for classroom components.
