Teaching is conducted in English, with a minimum workload of 5,000 hours of theoretical and practical training, equivalent to 300 ECTS.The Dentistry program integrates the acquisition of a strong science foundation with hands-on clinical skills.

We believe in early clinical exposure and our privately owned dental clinic will give you the opportunity for patient interaction and clinical training as early as the first year of study.

Our graduates will be able to function anywhere within the EU and other international health care standards.

The Dental Surgery program is based on the existing programs of European and North American dental schools with particular consideration on the “2009 Update of the Profile and Competences for the Graduating European Dentist”, which was approved by the Association of Dental Education in Europe (ADEE) on 28.08.2009.

The curriculum and training will provide graduates with a regognised qualification necessary for the practice of Dentistry as a general dental practitioner according to the EU-Directives 2005/36 and amendment 2013/55/EU.
