The Master’s program in Esthetic Dentistry (MED) offered by the J.W. Goethe University with strong support from the International Federation of Esthetic Dentistry (IFED) started in Winter 2019. The international program offers advanced academic training in the field of esthetic dentistry with a multidisciplinary focus.
It is a 90 ECTS part-time program taught entirely in English. The 2-year Master's program takes your time constraints and job responsibilities into consideration. You only have to travel to Frankfurt three times during your course of studies - each stay lasting up to 10 days.
The MED program is designed for the general dentist who has already taken the first step towards the field of esthetic dentistry. It aims to qualify students for demanding synoptic treatment options by enhancing their methodological and manual skills as well as increasing their awareness for the importance of objective evaluation of esthetic cases.
Since all areas of dentistry need to be considered in order to achieve excellent esthetics results, topics like oral- and maxillofacial surgery, dental prosthetics, periodontology, restorative dentistry, orthodontics and dental technology will be addressed in a well-balanced way throughout the whole program.
The program also presents you the opportunity to improve your comprehensive skills across all dental disciplines, especially in designing and applying the best treatment options.
Being completely non-sponsored and independent, the program would provide you with an unbiased view on the latest scientific insights and treatment procedures. Our unique tutorship-system supports you every step of the way – making sure that you always have a go-to person in case of questions regarding your patient treatment cases or your master thesis. Complementary disciplines such as economics, ethics and psychology are also included to help expand and strengthen your expertise while improving your communication skills needed when interacting with patients and colleagues.
The main Goal of the MED program is to provide you with the skill set to plan complex esthetic cases, to form the ideal therapeutic team for the individual esthetic case and to effectlvely head this team.
Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be awarded the academic title of "Master of Science (MSc.) in Esthetic Dentistry".
