Thesis preparation


In common with other programmes in the EU, this course runs for three years and incorporates a Masters degree. The full course combines the taught elements and research for the Master with a mandatory clinical training module.

We place special emphasis on:

  • contemporary orthodontic treatment techniques;
  • research methods and biostatistics;
  • the development of a questioning approach to the speciality of orthodontics.

The taught elements are delivered in group sessions, seminars, practical skills training, online learning and student-led enhancement sessions. Clinical teaching involves close supervision of a personal cohort of patients led by orthodontic specialists mostly certified by the European Board of Orthodontics.

The clinical training part of the course involves attendance at clinics and hospitals associated to Ludes Foundation HEI. During this time you will provide treatment for carefully selected patients under direct supervision of experienced specialists in Orthodontics.

At the completion of the course you will have acquired a deep knowledge on growth and development of the stomatognatic apparatus, its physiology and pathology as well as the possible genetic determined alterations.

You will be able to: guide the growth and development of the dentition and the basal bones; treat dentofacial deformities; understand tooth movement; treat patient presenting deciduous, mixed and permanent dentition; diagnose and treat Class I, II and III malocclusions, vertical and transversal occlusal alterations; treat adult patients even with reduced dentition and/or periodontal problems; interact with other specialists and be part of a multidisciplinary team; diagnose, treat and finalize patients requiring orthognatic surgery; master the most recent 3D technologies as well as the new anchorage devices and invisible technique; chose the more appropriate retention for each individual case; deal with patients politely and with empathy; listen to patients, understand their requests and help them to chose the appropriate treatment plan.

The research methods and biostatistics training is used in the planning and implementation of a research project and its presentation as a dissertation; advice and guidance will be available from a group of highly experienced researchers. It is hoped that the research topic will examine an issue of relevance to your future work and will also provide the basis for a refereed publication, therefore you will be able to find and critically analyze the most recent literature on a specific topic and develop research skills and critical appraisal.
