  • Graduation Profile in Periodontology

    The aim of this profile is to train postgraduate students in periodontology at a specialist level in periodontology. This is done through a programme of seminars and tutorials, which include an extensive review of the literature. Furthermore, considerable time is allocated to the treatment of patients suffering from specific periodontal diseases who are referred by general practitioners. Also education and clinics in implant dentistry specifically for periodontontitis patinets will be provided.

    Extensive training in research within the broad field of periodontology or implant dentistry is also part of the programme. The results of the research project conducted must be presented in the form of a manuscript (thesis) suitable for publication. The programme includes a residency in an accredited private periodontal practice, enabling the students to put theory into practice.

  • Diploma

    After passing the final exams and successfully defending the thesis, the candidate will be awarded a ‘Diploma in Clinical Periodontology and Implant Dentistry’ by the Department of Periodontology at ACTA, and an ‘EFP Certificate of Completion of Specialized Training (CCST) in Periodontology, Periodontics and Implant Dentistry’.

    A joint Master’s degree in Oral Health Sciences will be awarded by both the University of Amsterdam and the VU University Amsterdam.
