Also, at the initiative and following the sustained efforts Prof. Univ. Dr. Carmen Todea, at the headquarters of the discipline is taking place the European Master’s program “European Master Degree of Laser Applications”. The European EMDOLA program was born through the scientific and didactic cooperation of several university centers in the European Union. This project has been operational for more than 10 years in Liege, Barcelona, Parma, Rome, later it joined Timișoara, and in 2020 it joined the Wroklaw University Center. These universities offer a joint curriculum, consisting of 10 modules, over 2 years. The courses are conducted in English and Romanian for our university center (with simultaneous English-Romanian translation for situations where it is needed). Upon graduation, master-students receive double recognition by awarding a diploma from the host university and a European diploma.
The 10 modules have the following structure:
I: Optics, Laser Physics
II: Laser-tissue interaction, laser safety, properties of laser equipment and their applications in dentistry
III: Diagnosis, Doppler Laser Flowmetry, Optical Coherence Tomography, use of laser in dental therapy, use of laser in preventive dentistry, dentinal hypersensitivity
IV: Use of laser in pulpal styling, in endodontics,
V: The use of laser in dental aesthetics, pedodontics and orthodontics
VI: Use of laser in periodontics; Photodynamic therapy. Laser in oral surgery
VII: The use of laser in implantology and dental prosthetics, the use of laser in the dental technique laboratory
VIII: Low energy laser therapy; Jurisprudence and management
IX: Designing the master’s thesis, bibliographic research, laboratory research, clinical instruction
X: Final examination; Public defense of the master’s thesis
