Our program was created to give the profession the opportunity to base scientific and technological knowledge in evidence-based dentistry, basic sciences and contemporary dentistry so that their clinical, research and academic practice are part of the life project of the professional in a global context.

Being a research-type master's degree, we handle lines of research focused on bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, craniofacial growth and development, innovation, technology and organizations, computational modeling, among others.

We have three research groups classified in Colciencias, which are Cleft Lip and Palate, Oral Physiology, and CES-LPH Craniofacial Growth; in Bioengineering –GIB; and Basic and Clinic in Dentistry -CBO. That support the research that is developed in the master's degree.

Our master's degree is intensified in areas of research, epidemiology, biostatistics, basic and clinical sciences applied to dentistry.

The student handles different data summary measures. Variables and measurement level. Exploratory data analysis and probability concept.

Also, the master applies the historical development of epidemiology and current application in research to identify, analyze, prioritize and monitor health problems.
