MAS Lingual Orthodontics
Master of Advanced Studies

This is the first master degree programme (MAS) in lingual orthodontics at university level in Switzerland to offer an additional comprehensive qualification in both theoretical and practical lingual orthodontics. It is recommended for dentists who have already a specialisation in orthodontics.
The Master of Advanced Studies in Lingual Orthodontics will allow participants to gain practical experience with different lingual appliance systems.
Our unique training concept is the opportunity for students to compare the two most commonly used systems in a clinical setting with regard to ease of handling and patient acceptance. Modern digital and analogue techniques complement each other in a functional and flexible method of application.

The degree programme consists of treatment of patients, typodont exercises, case discussions, interactive teaching sessions, as well as lectures and seminars. The student will be expected to broaden his/her knowledge through literature study and comparison of dif ferent clinical applications.

The acquirements are 24 modules and two compact weeks consisting in attending the practices of the teachers. Self-study between the modules is expected. A master thesis with a final examination will be required. The workload of 1800 hours over two years equates to 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

The course modules will predominately take place on a Friday and Saturday. On Fridays the focus will be on clinical work and on Saturdays the theoretical foundations will be explored in more depth. Each module will be concluded with an oral or written examination and in some cases with an oral presentation. The modules will be complemented by two compact educational weeks.

The research for the Master thesis should be initiated within the first year and concluded with the final examination in the second year.
