The Dental Branch offers three types of programs which are designed for the dentist who wishes to pursue advanced education. These programs are: graduate (degree & certificate), postgraduate (certificate), and residency (certificate).

Graduate
The graduate program leads to a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) degree and a certificate in a specialty area of dentistry. Programs are designed to meet the eligibility requirements for examination by the particular American Specialty Board and accreditation standards of the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation. The following clinical specialties are offered: Endodontics, Prosthodontics and Periodontics.

The curriculum in the graduate programs varies between programs based upon discipline specific requirements. Orientation in research and human subjects is required for students pursuing a graduate degree. A thesis is required, and the total length of the program varies with the area of specialty. The minimum period of time is five or six academic semesters and three summer sessions, depending on the requirements of the particular specialty. Graduate programs are combined programs and under no circumstances are the Degree and Certificate awarded separately.

Postgraduate


The postgraduate program leads to a certificate in general dentistry or a specialty area and an optional Master of Science in Dentistry degree consisting primarily of basic science courses, clinical science courses and seminars, and a clinical program designed to meet eligibility requirements for examination by the particular American Specialty Board and accreditation standards of the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The following specialties are offered: Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. General Dentistry Programs include the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) and the General Practice Residency (GPR). A thesis is required for the Master of Science in Dentistry degree. Orientation in research methodology and human subjects’ research is required for students pursuing a specialty certificate. The award of the certificate is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the required basic and clinical science courses, clinical conferences, appropriate clinical training for the area of specialization and research project if required by the department.

Residency
Residency programs lead to a certificate and consist primarily of basic science courses, clinical science courses and a clinical program designed to meet eligibility requirements for examination by the particular American Specialty Board and accreditation standards of the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The specialty program offered is in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Four-year certificate and six-year combined MD/certificate Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery programs are included.

The basic prerequisites for both 4 and 6-year programs are a DDS or DMD degree from an accredited dental school and National Dental Boards Parts I & II. Please see below for additional requirements for the integrated OMS/MD program.

Both 4 and 6-year residency programs are designed to integrate the fields of medicine and dentistry. The residency provides extensive surgical experience and exposure in areas such as oral and maxillofacial pathology, maxillofacial trauma, reconstruction, cleft palate, orthognathic, dentoalveolar surgery, implants, TMJ and aesthetic surgery as well as outpatient anesthesia.

*Special provisions are also available for individuals to pursue a PhD or MS during either track.

In the 4-year program, residents spend the first year performing oral and maxillofacial surgery. In the second and third years, 12 months are spent on various off-service rotations such as medicine, anesthesia, neurosurgery, and general surgery. The final year consists of 12 months of oral and maxillofacial surgery at a Chief Resident level. Upon satisfactory completion of the 4-year program, residents receive a certificate in oral & maxillofacial surgery.

The 6-year program adopts a similar schedule to the 4-year program with the primary difference consisting of requirements for obtaining the MD degree. The first year is spent with the oral and maxillofacial surgery department. In the second, third, and fourth years, residents are enrolled in medical school, completing years two, three, and four of the medical school curriculum. During the fourth year of medical school, 8 months are provided for the fulfillment of requirements related to the oral and maxillofacial surgery residency such as rotations on the oral and maxillofacial surgery and anesthesia services. The fifth year of the residency is a surgical internship year which also includes a 5 month rotation in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In the sixth year, the resident serves as a chief resident with rotations to five different hospitals. Upon satisfactory completion of the 6-year program, residents receive a certificate in oral & maxillofacial surgery and a M.D. degree.

The 6-year OMS/MD candidate must meet the admissions requirements for the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. These include:

  1. A minimum of 90 undergraduate credit hours at an accredited US or Canadian university or college.
  2. 1 year of college english.
  3. 2 years of college biology.
  4. ½ year of college calculus.
  5. 1 year of Physics.
  6. 2 years of college chemistry comprising of 1 year of general chemistry and 1 year of organic chemistry.

*The 4-year program is initially offered to U.S. military applicants. Should they not exercise their option to fill one or both of these slots, those positions will become available to non-military applicants.

Candidates from either the 4 or 6 year tracks may pursue either a MS (granted by the Dental Branch) or PhD (in conjunction with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences). A GRE and additional courses or study may be required depending on the individual’s previous or anticipated academic experience. The additional degrees will likely extend the duration of the residency.

Various approaches to routine orthodontic tooth movement, dentofacial orthopedics, surgical-orthodontics and techniques for the management of the cleft lip and palate/craniofacial deformity patient are presented. Topics include: growth and development, biomechanics, adjunctive orthodontic procedures, radiology/radiographic imaging techniques, craniofacial deformities, dentofacial orthopedics, interdisciplinary comprehensive care, temporomandibular disorders, surgical orthodontics, literature review, clinical orthodontics and risk management.

The final six (6) months of the educational program will focus on completion of research projects and thesis preparation. Emphasis will also be placed on the detailing and finishing of all remaining clinical cases under treatment. In addition, residents will employ their diagnostic and treatment planning skills for evaluation of new patients in screening clinics. Two one (1) week extramural rotations in the private offices of participating orthodontic faculty members is a highlight of the final months of the residency.

The clinical faculty is exemplary and provides the student the education necessary to practice clinically efficient orthodontics. Graduates of the orthodontic program are encouraged to become board certified. All students complete a research project for the Masters of Science degree. In addition to a thesis, a publishable version of the research is required.
