Course content

The Master of Dentistry (MDent) is a one year full-time, or two year part-time taught Master's programme which enhances dental practitioners' clinical skills and research base, but does not lead to specialist registration. It is offered in two fields: as an endorsement in Aesthetic Dentistry or an endorsement in Rural Oral Health Care.

Structure of the Programme

  • The programme shall consist of papers and a research dissertation to a total value of 180 points as specified for one of the following endorsements:
  • Aesthetic Dentistry: AEST 801AEST 802AEST 880.
  • Rural Oral Health Care: ROHC 801ROHC 802ROHC 880
  • All requirements for an endorsement must be passed for the degree to be awarded.
  • Subject to the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, papers which have been completed at the University of Otago, another university, or an approved examining body may be credited to the programme and/or used as the basis for exemption from the requirements of the clinical papers mentioned in (b) above, provided that this previous study is directly relevant to the candidate's proposed and approved programme of study, to a maximum of 60 points. There will be no exemption from the research paper.

Duration of the Programme

  • A candidate for the degree shall normally follow a programme of study for one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.
  • The programme will take place over an academic year of 46 weeks (for full-time students) or over two academic years of 23 weeks per year for part-time students.
  • A candidate will normally be expected to satisfy the requirements for the degree within two years of admission to a full-time programme or within four years of admission to a part-time programme.
