Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology - Certificate
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is the production and interpretation of images and data produced by all modalities of radiant energy that are used for the diagnosis and management of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral and maxillofacial region. Participants gain experience in oral and maxillofacial radiologic practice; acquire background information in radiation physics, biology, and protection; and enhance their teaching and research skills.
The mission of this certificate program is to graduate comprehensively trained dental specialists who will become proficient oral and maxillofacial radiologists, competent teachers who are familiar with foundational research training and study assessment, and strong contributors to the dental profession.
All courses within this program are taught face-to-face, on campus at the College of Dentistry in Dallas. This program may require off-campus assignments at local, Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex hospitals or dental clinics.
All applicants must hold a DDS, DMD, or equivalent foreign degree for admission. The certificate qualifies the graduate dentist for an independent specialty practice specializing in oral and maxillofacial radiology, as well as qualification to challenge the examination of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology for board certification (diplomate status).
An optional MS in Oral Biology is available through the Department of Biomedical Sciences. Additional time in residence would be required if pursuing the Certificate and the MS in Oral Biology simultaneously. Additional tuition fees would also be incurred.
