About

Education in dentistry must provide students with skills required for all the activities and interventions within prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of anomalies and diseases of the teeth, gums, jaws, and surrounding tissues and with the necessary qualifications to allow them to practice in accordance with legal regulations and the requirements of neontology.

The new Dentistry study programme was introduced in reaction to the EU effort to ensure a unified system of dentistry education within the European Union to allow student exchange, a single type of education, and a single dentistry degree. The programme places emphasis on deeper knowledge about the head and neck area, mouth, and oral treatments as well as on practical and routine skills of graduates in providing treatment to patients.

This Dentistry programme is offered by Masaryk University

The programme is designed to prepare graduates for unsupervised dentistry practice as soon as possible after graduation, in both the private and the public sector, or to be able to start training as orthodontists. The length of the study programme has been set at five years as the most common length of a dentistry programme, with dentistry courses making up 50% of all the courses (i.e. at least 2,250 hours out of the total of 4,500 hours in 5 years), not including the summer practical training.

This change has also been triggered by the request of the Czech Dental Chamber, which has called for a quick increase in the number of dentists to prevent an impending shortage of dentists in the Czech Republic. The Chamber also requires graduates who can be licenced directly after graduation. The goals, therefore, is to introduce a five-year study programme with a higher number of dentistry courses compared to other medical courses.

A successful graduate is able to

Provide professional preventive, diagnostic, prosthetics, therapeutic, medical opinion, and monitoring activities, as he/she has the required knowledge about:

  • Constitution, physiology, and behaviour of healthy and ill individuals and the influence of the natural and social environment on human health, as far as these apply to dentistry.
  • Structure and function of teeth, mouth, jaws, and surrounding tissues in healthy and ill people and their relationship to the overall health and wellbeing of the patient.
  • Clinical areas and methods that provide a comprehensive overview of anomalies, lesions, and diseases of teeth, mouth, jaws, and surrounding tissues and preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures.
  • Appropriate clinical practice thanks to supervised practical training.
Graduate employment

Graduates of the five-year Dentistry study programme have the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to practice dentistry as autonomous professionals, start training to earn professional qualifications in the individual dentistry specializations, start training in orthodontics, or work at university dentistry clinics, including as post-graduate research fellows.

The Dentistry programme is designed so as to allow students to earn the qualifications for working in state and private health institutions in accordance with section 26 of Act no. 95/2004 Coll. by completing the programme.
