Advanced training in prosthodontics consists of an integrated education program designed to provide both knowledge in the dentally applied basic sciences and experiences in the clinical science of prosthodontics. These include but are not limited to, complete denture prosthodontics, removable partial denture prosthodontics, fixed partial denture prosthodontics, maxillofacial prosthetics, and surgical and prosthodontics dental implantology.

A series of structured didactic and clinical courses provides the student with a level of knowledge and skill development necessary to practice prosthodontics as a specialty and to prepare for a career in teaching and research.

The program qualifies the student for examination and certification by the American Board of Prosthodontics.

The Master of Science degree program requires the development of an in-depth research problem which must be reported in the form of a thesis.
