After your master's
Once you have finished your Master’s you are a real dentist. If you wish, after the Master’s you can specialize in a particular branch of Dentistry (Periodontics, Endodontics, Paedodontics, Implantology) and focus on specific dental problems. A very small proportion of graduates can be trained as medical specialists (orthodontists or maxillofacial surgeons). You must complete the programme before you can work as a maxillofacial surgeon.
