Overview

The dental curriculum leads to the dentist degree, and forms the basis for specialist education or scientific (PhD) studies. The aim of the study programme is to prepare qualified specialists with theoretical and practical skills appropriate to commence independently practicing general dentistry.

The study program has been developed according to EU Directive2005/36/EC of mutual recognition of qualifications of health care professionals, directly related to the guidelines of Association of Dental Education in Europe.

The study programme comprises several components like biomedical subjects, common to medicine and dentistry- progressing from cell biology and biochemistry to anatomy and physiology of the human body, pharmacology, pathology, microbiology, epidemiology and related sciences like psychology, ethics and practice management. Appreciation of human development, structure, function, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases will be taught in modular form based on the systems of human body.

Oral and dental aspects of the biological sciences will ensure detailed knowledge of the structure and function of the oral and dental tissues and the related structures of the head and neck. These should lead to a progressive understanding of the diagnosis, causes, prevention and treatment of oral and dental diseases and disorders, and the effects of systemic disease on oral and dental tissues.
In order to obtain instruction and experience of the practice of dentistry, development of the clinical/manual skills of the students, clinical part of the study plan has significant role. Pre- clinical training will take place in phantom laboratories and clinics. Clinical training includes the treatment of patients under the supervision of clinical instructor. The field-clinical practice will take place in seventh and tenth semester.

The full – time degree programme covers five academic years. Classes are mainly from 8.30am till 6pm in the working days.

Career opportunities

Successful graduates of the study program have employment and self-employment opportunities based on professional qualification. The possibilities of joining the oral health care centers or private dental clinics or creating own practices are available as soon as professional certificate is obtained.
