In recent years, more and more dentists are seeking to deal with Growth Factors and Stem Cells applications in everyday dental practice.
These are applications that until now are not included in the curriculum in any undergraduate courses available and a plethora of dentists are very keen on learning about them.
The market demand in this sector is constantly growing as is the use of autologous products and other allograft materials and techniques for this purpose.
This Masters’s program, in addition to the theoretical online training from experienced tutors, offers one or two weeks of practical training in this field and covers thoroughly the overall use and application of these procedures.
Dentists actively participate in a wide range of cases through webinars and online modern learning technology and in-person practical training in a real-life setting, real treatments of cases, giving them the opportunity to understand better the use of growth factors and stem cells in the following areas:
GBR (Guided Bone Regeneration)
GTR (Guided Tissue Regeneration)
Aesthetics of facial and perioral area
Gaining an in-depth knowledge of contemporaneous and innovative techniques, devices, and materials.
The program seeks doctors who will ultimately graduate at an excellent level of knowledge in this field and will possess a thorough knowledge of how to make use of all the appropriate advanced technology.
Τhe duration of this course is two years with 120 ECTS.
The tutors, all of whom have a background in clinical applications and innovation, come from the best academic institutions and are willing to share their pioneering knowledge with prospective students.
This course of study is divided into 4 semesters and is a combination of 3 modes of study all of which have to be completed.
Theoretical online education
The postgraduate students are taught by attending lectures given by many international tutors online. Projects, assignments, and PowerPoint presentations.
In-person practical education
Students learn in practice by engaging practically in a hands-on approach. They will be taking part in a wide range of applications of growth factors and stem cells in the fields of dentistry. This is the part that makes the doctor a leader in his field and equips him with the skills to handle different kinds of cases by using growth factors and stem cells.
The third part, Research Track
This is a unique part of this postgraduate program. Students will be asked to review the literature as well as complete an individual research project. They will also prepare a thesis related to their research, which they will defend orally. Graduates of this Master’s program will be trained professionals with very good theoretical and clinical knowledge in the specialization of “Growth Factors and Stem Cells Applications in Dental Sciences” techniques and concepts.
We believe that the program bridges the gap between theoretical and practical training regarding the use of growth factors and stem cells in dentistry and enables doctors to successfully use this technology in their clinics.
It is important that our doctors acquire the depth of knowledge so as to make the right decisions when dealing with these types of cases. As a result, they will implement the right practices with less stress and in a more enjoyable manner. They will also understand and appreciate how to use growth factors and stem cells to provide better care to their patients.
We strongly believe that our program is the solution to the challenges in these areas of dental science.
The faculty of this program answers the call to serve our profession at the highest level. Together we will excel and achieve professional freedom and advancement.
