Faculty of Dentistry

The Faculty of Dentistry was founded in 1988. The Faculty follows the competency approach to specialist’s education; it presupposes the development of skills needed to begin an independent dental practice. Learning outcomes include such areas of knowledge and expertise necessary to practice dentistry as knowledge and understanding of basic clinical and social studies, different aspects of social healthcare, population medicine, and medical ethics.

Since 2006, the Faculty has operated the Center for dentists’ practical skills development at the pre-clinical phase. The concept and education forms have been developed across all major courses in order to help students develop manual skills. The Center is equipped with modern dental phantoms, children and clinical simulators, visual aids, instruments, and supplies.
