Endodontics | Curriculum

The twenty-six (26) month curriculum is structured to create a balanced course load, adequate time for broadening the student’s clinical experience, and an opportunity for students to gain research experience in an area of special interest.

The Master of Science in Dentistry will only be offered in conjunction with a dental clinical specialty Certificate program offered by the College of Dental Medicine.  A student may not enroll in the Master of Science in Dentistry program if not also concurrently enrolled in a dental specialty program.
