Periodontology and Implantology

Double-qualified - Master's program with internationally renowned, highly qualified lecturers

New part-time postgraduate Master's course in Periodontology and Implantology at DTMD University starts in autumn 2019. Registrations are now possible.

The ISO-certified, state-approved University for Digital Technologies in Medicine & Dentistry with headquarters in Schloss Wiltz, Luxembourg, is offering its postgraduate program "Master of Science in Periodontology and Implantology" in Germany for the first time in the second half of 2019. The courses, which are aimed exclusively at licensed dentists with several years of professional experience or comparable skills, are taught in German by specialists with proven practical experience who are recognized throughout Europe.

Periodontology and implantology are two disciplines of dentistry, oral and maxillofacial medicine which perfectly support and complement each other in their understanding and methodology. No other field of dentistry has developed so strongly in recent years in terms of diagnosis, therapy and science.

Periodontology, the study of periodontium, is becoming increasingly important due to demographic developments. Periodontal disease increases with age and is one of the most common causes of tooth loss after tooth decay.

Oral implantology is a specialty that requires a high level of expertise in a variety of rapidly evolving areas of application. The oral working environment is dynamic and perfect healing conditions are not always present. Complications can occur, but a well-trained implantologist knows how to prevent them. This requires in-depth knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck as well as of principles of surgery, prosthetics, pharmacology and skills for aftercare.

DTMD University has successfully launched its first master's degree course in periodontics and implantology in Eastern Europe and will launch this program in the coming months in other countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. The international team of lecturers at DTMD University teaches and works according to the motto: "Putting the latest scientific findings into practice". The focus of this Master's course is therefore primarily on "practical" teaching.

DTMD University has developed a master study concept with a combination of presence and online modules. This mix is ideal for students who can easily continue their professional activities parallel to their studies.

Implement the latest findings in theory and practice in periodontics and implantology

As part of the training, scientific information, diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making processes from daily practice should be placed on a stable foundation. The goal is to successfully put these findings into practice. The DTMD University commits its lecturers to impart the current state of scientific knowledge and methods to students in a practical way to significantly increase their competencies.

Significant added value

Demographic trends will sustainly increase the multimorbidity of elderly patients, that is, the co-existence of multiple diseases in a single person. At the same time, the changing spectrum of therapeutic options will place ever new and increasingly challenging demands on the practitioner. The added value of specializing in the master's degree in periodontics and implantology lies, above all, in being able to master step-by-step difficult situations and complications by means of a consistent pedagogically valuable "learning process".
