The combination of one year Master and three years Doctorate programme will be required to enable the graduates to be registered as dental specialists in the chosen specialty, under the Malaysian Dental Act 2018.

The fifth module will be the discipline chosen by the candidate, either in Restorative Dentistry, Periodontology or Orthodontics, as offered currently.
