In addition, the sections of orthodontics/dentofacial orthopedics and pediatric dentistry each offer a postgraduate program in their respective dental specialties and the GPR section offers an advanced education program. A Master of Science degree with a thesis (MSIA) is encouraged and supported. The faculty has a significant commitment to scholarly pursuits as well as teaching. The department has had grant support from various sources, including governmental and foundation as well as from dental industry.
