In Venezuela, according to the last census in the country, 40.3% of the population are under 15 years old. 68.45% of this population suffer from oral diseases, which go untreated since early childhood and, because of their degree of complexity, end up requiring a highly trained professional not only with specialized care abilities but also with well-developed research skills and therefore able to solve diagnostic and therapeutic questions necessary to efficiently meet the oral health needs of this important segment of the population. This situation is similar or worse in other Latin American countries.
This Certificate is characterized by clinical practice developed with a focus on praxis-based induction which consists of the formation of competences centered in the search for predisposing or Etiologic factors linked to genetics and the environment, through clinical protocols designs accomplished by substantiated evidence or the elaboration of research work carried out by the participants.
