  • Masters in Comprehensive Paediatric Dentistry: 120 ECTS


The oral health of infants, children and adolescents has an impact on the general health of children and the future adult population. It is therefore important for there to be dentists trained in preventing and solving the most frequent oral health problems in the paediatric population.

At the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya we train professionals with a clear objective: training specialists to diagnose, prevent and resolve the most frequent oral problems in the paediatric population with complementary theoretical and practical sessions.

The Master’s in Paediatric Dentistry focuses on new technological advances in treatments for improving patient health. Surgery, interceptive orthodontics and behaviour management are all part of the teaching programme, allowing students to offer comprehensive treatment of child patients. 


The Master’s Degree in Paediatric Dentistry is a course that involves a significant period of time in the clinic. You must have the material detailed below to ensure you can complete the course correctly.
