Master of Dental Therapy Program

A one-of-a-kind program

Students in the Master of Dental Therapy Program will be among the first in the nation to graduate in a newly created career path. The year-round, 28-month master’s degree program prepares graduates to assume roles in many different health care environments, such as private general dental practices, group dental practices, and community clinics. The program is the only midlevel provider education program in the country that is affiliated with an accredited school of dentistry. Students take several courses with dental and dental hygiene students, and all students learn together in School Dentistry clinics, which model a general practice. Graduates of the Master’s in Dental Therapy Program will be eligible for licensure as Dental Therapists upon program completion and for credentialing as Advanced Dental Therapists (ADT) in the state of Minnesota after fulfilling the required 2,000 hours of documented dental therapy practice and completing a comprehensive exam through the Board of Dentistry.
