Master in Odontology - Pós-Graduação - FHO | Fundação Hermínio Ometto

Master in Odontology

The Program

The Professional Master's Degree in Odontology, with a concentration in Orthodontics, was recommended by CAPES in 2002 and since then has been consolidating itself as an important nucleus for the training of qualified human resources. In the last CAPES evaluation, the Master in Orthodontics obtained a grade of 4, standing out among the most important Courses in the country.

» Area of concentration:

Our objective is to develop clinical and research activities, contributing to the development of critical thinking, dissemination of knowledge and the ability to interact with new technologies. Due to the university structure offered by FHO and its tradition in the health area, the Master's student has extensive training within the basic areas, with knowledge that goes beyond the area of concentration (Orthodontics).

Our classes are divided for better use of the Course. Class A is formed only by students who are already Specialists in Orthodontics and B by students who do not yet hold the degree.

Research lines

The Master in Orthodontics has two lines of research with the following projects in progress:

» Epidemiology, preventive measures and face growth and development

This line of research aims to analyze the various morphological characteristics of malocclusion through the study of its prevalence and to propose methods and preventive actions within orthodontics. It presents the following research projects:

- Epidemiology and Orthodontics - responsible professor: PhD. Silvia Amélia Scudeler Vedovello;

- Study of the structures and functions of the craniofacial complex - responsible teacher: PhD. Viviane Veroni Degan;

- Study of the signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorder - responsible teacher: PhD. Giovana Cherubini Venezian.

» Diagnostic, therapeutic and dental resources in orthodontics.

This research line aims to study the methods of orthodontic diagnosis, to evaluate the necessary resources for the development of mechanics and to analyze the physical-chemical properties of dental materials used in orthodontics. It presents the following research and innovation projects:

- Analysis of orthodontic therapy through different diagnostic resources - responsible professor: PhD. Carolina Carmo de Menezes;

- Analysis of the tissue reactions in the orthodontic movement - responsible teacher: PhD. Milton Santamaria Júnior;

- Evaluation of the mechanical resistance of dental materials in different therapeutic conditions - responsible professor: PhD. Ana Paula Terossi de Godoi;

- In vitro and clinical chemistry and microbiological studies of natural products aimed at innovative therapies - responsible professor: PhD. Vivian Fernandes Furletti de Goes;

- Intellectual property - teacher in charge: PhD. Mario Vedovello Filho;

» Dissertation:

Dissertation Activities were developed to accompany the student in all stages of the research design. The activities start from the construction of the theoretical reference; elaboration of the research question; fundamentals of methodological decisions based on the theoretical framework; definition of the population and variables under study; writing the research project; creation of databases; manipulation, research, ordering and reporting; creation of tables and dynamic charts; interpretation of results; delimitation of the theoretical bases for the scientific writing of the article; choice of the journal for the publication of the article result of Dissertation; bibliographic normalization; and as a final step revision and structuring of the scientific article. The student must fulfill the credits of the Dissertation activity. The activities are divided into three parts:

- Dissertation I activities (10 credits);

- Dissertation Activities II (10 credits);

- Dissertation Activities III (10 credits);
