January 27, 2022 -- The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine (Penn Dental Medicine) has launched a hybrid master's program: Master of Advanced Dental Studies.

The program includes online courses and a six-week on-campus clinical rotation in specialties of the students' choice. The following specialties are offered:

  • Endodontics
  • Orthodontics
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery
  • Oral medicine
  • Pediatric dentistry
  • Periodontics

Students will have access to in-depth seminars and lectures, be exposed to the latest technology, and be assigned a mentor within their specialty.
