The Master's program in Dental Technology (MDT) is starting at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main in April 2019. The international program offers advanced academic training in the field of dental technology with a multidisciplinary focus. It is a 120 ECTS part-time program, taught entirely in english language.
Over the period of 3 years you will be travelling 4 times to the Goethe-University, each time up to 8-10 days. During each visit you’ll have face-to-face seminars, lectures as well as hands-on trainings scheduled throughout the day.
The Master in Dental Technology is designed for dental technicians (Bachelor / “Zahntechnikermeister”) and dentists who want to acquire highly advanced qualification in the field of dental technology. The aim of the course “Master of Science in Dental Technology“ is to academically support the change in the line of work of the dental as well as optimizing the working relationship with the dentists undertaking the treatment. Within the program, students gain a deep understanding of assessment procedures, planning and scientific evaluation of complex treatments requiring dental restorations. The program focusses on synergy potentials of different treatment regimes as well as digital optimization of existing therapy options, putting emphasis on scientific aspects. In addition dental technicians will be trained to perform non-invasive treatment steps on patients. All training will be performed on phantom heads.
Being completely non-sponsored and independent, the program is providing you with an unbiased view on latest scientific insights and treatment procedures. Additionally, interdisciplinary topics will be covered, e.g. lab management, business development and anatomy, to broaden your expertise in fields other than dental technology. This allows you to gain benefit from applying different perspectives to your professional knowledge in the field of dental technology.
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 dental restoration cases or your masterthesis. Additionally, our e-learning platform is available to you at any time. As all lectures are recorded, you can access them through the e-learning platform and also retrieve course materials or reach out to your fellow students, lecturers or administrative staff.
Target of the MDT program is to provide you with the skill-set to plan and construct complex restoration cases and to be part of an interdisciplinary therapeutic team for the individual dental case. Upon successful completion of the program, the graduates will be awarded the academic title "Master of Science (MSc.) in Dental Technology".
