Graduate Education Programs

Indiana University School of Dentistry offers the Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) intended primarily for students who have received the doctorate in dentistry and wish to go on to obtain an adequate background in one of the various disciplines of dentistry or of the allied basic sciences in order to broaden their dental background or to complete the academic requirements for specialty boards.  A four year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery certificate program is also available.

Students may register in IU's University Graduate School and work toward the Master of Science (MS) degree in dental materials.

A Ph.D. in dental science (oral biology, preventive dentistry and dental biomaterials tracks) is also available through IU's University Graduate School.    In addition, a combined Ph.D./D.D.S. program has been established incorporating aspects of both programs.
