Program overview

The substantial social transformation during this century is the increased aging population. In 2017, a number of senior citizens in Thailand were 11 million or 17% of a total population. The number will be up to 19.6% in 2030, and is expected to be up to 29.6% of a total population in 2050, making Thailand an “Super-Aged Society”. An increased dependency ratio is a great challenge to healthcare system, social security, and economics. Older people and those with special needs have complex underlying diseases and require special personal and dental care.

The Master of Science in Geriatric Dentistry and Special Patients Care (GSP) at the Faculty of Dentistry, Chulalongkorn University was established to deliver personalized dental treatment and improve standards of care to elderly and special care patients, including physically and mentally disabled, and the vulnerable ones. The program is ideal for dental professionals who are committed to provide the best dental care for their patients and families. The courses cover the fundamental to advance knowledge in several aspects of dental management.

Students can make a practice of an effective communication skill, management of psychological and mental issues, cooperation with care givers, consultation with medical professionals, and handling underlying medical problems.
