Description of Dentistry

This five-year field of study is completed with the degree of MDDr. The studies are of full-time mode and designed for graduates of secondary schools completed with a school-leaving examination. The first two years of the studies include extended dentistry courses of Preclinical Dentistry, Gnathology, Prosthetic Technology - Materials, and Preventive Dentistry, together with the theoretical general-medicine courses of Medical Physics and Informatics, Biology, Medical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Anatomy, Histology, Physiology, and others.

Successful studies of the theoretical courses necessitate an excellent previous knowledge of natural science-oriented subjects at the grammar-school level. The instruction is carried out in the form of lectures, practicals, and seminars. The practicals in dentistry courses take place at the Department of Stomatology with the use of modern aids - simulators. Preclinical Dentistry is completed with an examination in the 3rd semester.

The third year of studies comprises general-medicine preclinical courses: Pathological Anatomy, Pathological Physiology, Clinical Examination in Internal Medicine and Surgery, and others. It is preparatory to the study of clinical general-medicine courses, especially in the 4th and at the beginning of the 5th years. General-medicine courses are taught in a reduced extent with special attention paid to oral and dental problems. From the 5th semester on, intensive, specialised instruction in dentistry courses is started, which continues until the 10th semester.

The studies of dentistry courses are intensified both in the theoretical and practical aspects, ending up in a 15-week pre-graduation practical training in the 10th semester which emphasises a comprehensive treatment of the patient. The dentistry courses occupy more than 50 % of the whole curricular time. In the course of the studies students also complete 4 blocks of vacation practical training during which they gradually get acquainted with the operation of health-care stomatological facilities, with practical procedures, special materials, and technologies. The studies are completed with advanced (rigorous) state examinations in three dentistry subjects: Therapeutic, Surgical, and Orthopaedic Stomatology.
