UConn HealthThe Graduate School

Dental Clinical Specialty/Ph.D. Program

The combined Ph.D./advanced clinical training program is designed to develop outstanding clinician scientists in basic biomedical, behavioral and clinical oral health research. Dentists undertake five-six years of intensive study involving three integrated phases:

(1) a basic science component which includes both didactic and laboratory experiences at the Ph.D. level;

(2) a supervised research program employing either a basic or clinical science approach to studying an oral health problem; and

(3) advanced clinical knowledge and skills development in either a recognized dental specialty or other equivalent dental clinical discipline.

The Ph.D. work may be done in any of the Ph.D. graduate programs at UConn Health. At the conclusion of the program, the appointee will obtain the Ph.D. degree and be board eligible or certified in a dental clinical specialty. This program is available only to trained clinicians with a D.D.S. or D.M.D.
