The five-year program (consisting of 10 semesters) is designed to unify basic and clinical sciences, as it is believed that scientific and professional development cannot be sharply separated but should proceed concurrently throughout the program.
In the first three years, the students are taught basic sciences – medical and dental courses – which constitute the foundation of clinical dentistry.
The last two years are dedicated to intensive clinical studies of the various disciplines of dentistry, with emphasis on diagnosing and treating patients.
In the final year, students also participate in elective programs, clinical conferences and hospital practices. After the successful completion of the program, students are awarded the title of Doctor of Dentistry.
