In addition to the DMD curriculum, all MOSDOH students take the following courses to earn a certificate in public health with a dental emphasis:

  1. Introduction to Dental Public Health
  2. Behavior Science and Educational Concepts
  3. Dental Epidemiology
  4. Dental Healthcare Policy and Management
  5. Financing Dental Care

The first course in the certificate program is taken at the beginning of the second year. Courses are quarter-based and offered online in 10-week sessions through ATSU’s College of Graduate Health Studies. Students who wish to complete a master’s degree in public health need 10 additional courses of the 15 in the curriculum. These courses, in addition to the dental school curriculum, will provide students with a broad exposure to service- and community-based learning.
