PRESENTATION AND HISTORY The Dentistry program at Tuiuti University has a tradition spanning over 30 years in training dentists. Throughout these years, the professionals educated at this institution have made significant contributions to enhancing oral health  both the municipality and the state of Paraná. From the very beginning, Tuiuti University has been distinguished by its focus on TMD (Temporomandibular JDisorders) and Orofacial Pain. This emphasis emerged due to the scarcity of specialized care facilities and the unwavering commitment of the university to provide this specialty, leading to the establishment of the Center for Diagnosis and Therapy of the Temporomandibular Joint (CDATM). The growth and development of CDATM eventually led to collaboration with the field of Endodontics, resulting in the creation of the Center for Diagnosis and Therapeutics in Endodontics (CD-ENDO). This integration facilitated the sharing of patient history, clinical and imaging exams, and the subsequent collaborative and differential diagnosis of pain conditions, thereby preventing misdiagnosis and ensuring that orofacial pain treatments are directed to Tuiuti University of Paraná. In this context, the Academic Master's Program in Dentistry at Tuiuti University of Paraná is a natural progression of the Dentistry course. Built on a strong pedagogical foundation, its goal is to prepare professionals to critically and comprehensively engage in teaching and research, with a focus on the transformative role of education and the impact of their actions within communities. The program received approval and a recommendation from CAPES during the 223rd CTC-ES Meeting held from August 14 to 18, 2023

    Our objectives are centered around developing values and practices that promote the training of highly skilled professionals who can excel as educators, researchers, and administrators in the field of Dentistry, with a particular emphasis on specialties like Endodontics, TMD, and Orofacial Pain

    As a result, depending on their chosen area of concentration, professionals will be prepared to:

    – Participate in teaching and take on leadership roles in higher education institutions.

    – Demonstrate strong investigative and scientific abilities, along with a critical, ethical, and reflective approach, allowing them to collaborate effectively in teams to assess and propose innovative solutions.

    – Establish knowledge hubs and research groups within universities and research institutions.

    – Cultivate partnerships within the academic community, collaborating with governmental and non-governmental organizations to initiate innovative scientific projects.

    – Address the social, scientific, and technological needs of both the public and private sectors.




    The Master’s Program in Dentistry at Tuiuti University of Paraná offers two areas of concentration:

    • Endodontics: This concentration area focuses on imparting knowledge related to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of odontogenic pain associated with pulp diseases and their impact on periapical tissues. Additionally, it encourages innovative research in materials and endodontic and restorative therapies to advance the approach and restoration of dental health and function.


    • Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) and Orofacial Pain: In this concentration area, students gain an interdisciplinary understanding of the anatomical and physiological aspects, diagnosis, and treatment options for Temporomandibular Disorders and Orofacial Pain. This field also encourages innovative research and studies into the causes and diverse clinical therapies, with the goal of restoring stomatognathic system function and improving the quality of life for individuals affected by orofacial disorders.

    *This is the only Dentistry Program in the state of Paraná with both of these areas of concentration approved and recommended by CAPES.


    The Master’s Degree in Dentistry at Tuiuti University is organized into two research areas that provide a strong foundation for its areas of concentration:

    • Anatomophysiopathological, Molecular, and Therapeutic Aspects of Orofacial Pain: This research line is dedicated to the exploration of anatomical, physiological, pathological, and molecular processes that underlie orofacial pain within the stomatognathic system. It encourages interdisciplinary collaboration by establishing connections with various dental specialties and other healthcare fields, facilitating the integration of concepts to gain a deeper understanding of systemic phenomena. This line also seeks to investigate and evaluate the effectiveness of protocols for distinguishing between odontogenic and non-odontogenic pain, while also focusing on the analysis and development of therapies for Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) and Orofacial Pain.
    • Biological Bases, Materials, and Techniques Applied to Endodontics: This research line delves into the morphology, physiology, microbiology, and pathology of dental pulp and peri-radicular tissues. It encompasses the study of normal pulp biology, etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of pulp-related diseases and traumatic injuries, as well as conditions associated with peri-radicular tissues. Additionally, this line covers the examination of instruments, equipment, and techniques utilized in clinical endodontic therapy, alongside the physicochemical and biological properties of materials used in the rehabilitation of endodontically treated teeth.

    The Master’s Program in Dentistry at Tuiuti University of Paraná has been establishing fruitful international cooperation and exchange agreements with the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Regensburg and the University of Bonn in Germany, as well as the University of Paris.

    With the German universities, these partnerships hold strategic importance due to the interdisciplinary nature of Orthodontics, which plays a fundamental role in addressing Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), Orofacial Pain, and specific aspects of Endodontics. These areas encompass a wide range of research topics, including root resorptions, pulp nodule formation, malocclusion conditions, hormonal and genetic factors, as well as craniofacial growth and development associated with orofacial pain.

    With the Orofacial Neurobiology Laboratory at the University of Paris, work has pointed out aspects of interest for the development of both diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial pain, such as headaches and degenerative diseases, among others.

    This collaborative effort has yielded a substantial body of work, resulting in over 50 joint publications between the institutions. These partnerships not only encourage academic exchange but also facilitate the mobility of both faculty members and students, while providing essential infrastructure for collaborative research endeavors.
