Objectives

The Postgraduate Degree in Advanced Comprehensive Dentistry is aimed at dentists who want to diagnose, plan and treat any type of pathology they see at the dental clinic that does not require a specialist. In particular: endodontic treatment of any dental group (incisors, canines, premolars and molars), periodontal pathologies, prosthetic rehabilitation treatments, any type of conservative dentistry treatment, most tooth extractions and root canal exodontia, the placement of implants that do not require a specialist and problems related to the temporomandibular joint.

This postgraduate degree’s programme is divided into four parts: an initial theoretical part including lectures on all areas; a second part of clinical seminars to discuss the clinical cases of patients that students will treat at the Clinic; a third part involving clinical work experience where students will treat patients at the University Dental Clinic; and a fourth part including complementary theoretical-practical classes taught by external expert guest lecturers, hands-on courses in dental techniques and online diploma classes from other programmes also taught at the University.

Presentation

The Postgraduate Degree in Advanced Integral Dentistry is based on a theoretical-practical curriculum, which aims to provide students with the comprehensive knowledge and skills they need to become general practice dentists, able to design and implement a treatment plan for patients who visit the dental clinic for the first time.

The theoretical programme will be taught by lecturers from the corresponding dental specialities, and the practical programme will focus on the treatments administered to patients at the University Dental Clinic.

The practical competences of this postgraduate degree are divided into specialities and explore the types of treatment we believe students should be able to administer, and which treatments should be referred to the respective postgraduate or master's degree.

The main objective is to enhance the competences students acquire on the Bachelor’s Degree in Dentistry, thereby improving their professional ability to deal with patients, and give them greater confidence when treating different pathologies. By the end of the postgraduate degree, students trained as “general dentists” must be able to carry out the vast majority of dental treatments (conservative dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, surgery/implantology, prostheses, etc.) in a fully integrated and organised manner.
