As a result of our new internationalization initiative we are offering a new Degree in Dentistry. The academic content is taught fully in English for the five years. In line with our policy, the maximum students for this international group is going to be 25 for the first year. We will be providing special counselling and support for international students and they are going to be taught in small groups so that they can receive quality advice and assistance.
This full-time 5-year Degree gives the student the opportunity to develop skills through training based and on a problem-solving approach and exposing students to new dental technology and research. Degree students carry out over 1.000 hours of early practice at our university clinics.
Our mission is to prepare the student to become a professional Dentist who is able to start working the day after he qualifies and therefore, we place a great deal of emphasis on the practicals. To this end, we introduce the practicals from the early years of the degree, students are supervised by an expert faculty member as they work with patients. They assume responsibilities, gain confidence and can see the result that their treatment has had on the patient, which is extremely rewarding.
From their 3rd year, students have the opportunity to collaborate, do extracurricular practice or an internship in university clinics, private clinics and hospitals.
Students benefit from lectures and seminars delivered by experts and leading dental professionals throughout the degree.
During their 3rd and 4th year, students present literature review and academic research projects at the UCV Dental Pathology and Therapeutics Congress. The projects will serve as a basis for the Final Degree Project.
In addition we have accredited / official Masters in the following specialties: Comprehensive Orthodontic, Pediatric Dentistry and Oral surgery and Implantology programme.
Furthermore, postgraduate programmes in Advanced Oral Implantology, Comprehensive Integral Orthodontics, Restorative Dentistry and Endodontics, Dental Aesthetics and a Periodontology programme.
The faculty will have brand new clinical facilities that include, different diagnostic tools such as orthopantomography, teleradiography, computerized axial tomography, fully-equipped operating theatre, intraoral digital radiography, CEREC Bluecam MCXL milling units. As these facilities are owned by the university and the university is non-profit organization, there is not a shortage of patients.
