The five-year program is designed to unify the basic and clinical sciences. In the first two years, which is the basic module, students are taught basic sciences – medical and dental courses – which are the foundation of clinical dentistry. Students meet patients already in the summer practice after the first year, where they can observe treatments and help as dental assistants. Teaching of dental subjects starts already in the first year. Students have laboratory practices on manikins from the 2nd year to acquire the knowledge that is essential for the clinical practices. In the training laboratory they will learn about the dental materials and instruments and will acquire the various methods and manoeuvres on phantom heads. The preclinical module in the 3rd year prepares students for the clinical patient care by focusing on mastering the manual skills, that will be applied later on in the clinical module. After the third year more emphasis is placed on the study of dental diseases and their clinical treatment. The last two years – clinical module – serve the intensive clinical study of each of the various disciplines of dentistry, where students treat real patients under close supervision of their tutors. After a successful completion of the program students are awarded the title Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). For further information about the curriculum please check this website.
A degree in dental medicine opens up a world of professional opportunities. Dentists enjoy excellent compensation and the high demand for dental care is likely to continue in the future. While the majority of dental school graduates go into private practice, there are alternate pathways, including working in hospital emergency rooms, conducting advanced laboratory research, teaching future dentists and more.
