Gain extensive practice in both public laboratories and hospitals and private facilities during your studies. Moreover, the brand new simulation hospital is the perfect place to train your skills and gain confidence before approaching actual patients.
Everything you need to learn
Once you finish your studies, you will have a perfect foundation to start your own practice more or less anywhere in the world, gaining economic independence and corresponding social status.
You will be encouraged to spend a part of your studies abroad, gaining more international experience along the way. Why study at only one university? The whole of Europe is open for you.
The study leads to acquiring key knowledge and skills that are – in general terms – understanding of the functioning of the human body and its parts in health and illness, understanding the biological, physical, and chemical principles on which diagnosis, rational effective treatment, and disease prevention are based, with a focus on the orofacial area.
An integral part of the Master's degree programme in Dentistry is the obligatory professional practice in health care facilities, which the students receive from the 4th semester of the course of study up to the end of their study.
Before the State Rigorous Exam in the 10th semester, the students undergo an intensive seven-week internship in all fields of dentistry, with the focus on the complex treatment of patients in conservative dentistry, paediatric dentistry, periodontics, prosthetic dentistry, orthodontics, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The aim of the Master's degree programme in Dentistry is to prepare students for the independent practice of a dental practitioner so that they are able to perform it at a high professional level according to the current state of knowledge and in accordance with legal regulations and deontological rules. It is implemented within a credit system of study that is fully compatible with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), thus creating conditions for students for completing part of their studies at European partner universities.
The study is divided into 10 semesters and is based on the gradual passage of the student through theoretical, preclinical, and later clinical subjects. The curriculum is conceived on the principle of the logical continuity of subjects/disciplines where the enrolment into the individual subjects is adjusted by a system of prerequisites (i.e. pre-existing knowledge acquired by studying the preceding subjects as a necessary basis for follow-up subjects) for maximum efficiency. The study includes four continuous practices in the laboratory/practise of a dentist.
The study of the Dentistry programme is completed by a State Rigorous Exam which consists of a practical and theoretical part in the following disciplines:
Paediatric Dentistry and Periodontology,
Prosthetic Dentistry and Orthodontics,
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
In addition to internships in contractual health facilities, the students have a further summer vacation practice (typically in private facilities, in laboratories, and at clinical workplaces) in the scope of 210 hours:
after the 2nd semester, practice in the dental laboratory (1 week) and in the surgery (1 week) within the subject Preclinical Dentistry – a total of 2 weeks,
after the 4th semester as a complement to Preventive Dentistry – 1 week with the corresponding dental hygienist practice,
after the 6th semester – 2 weeks of professional practice in the field of Practical Dentistry,
after the 8th semester – 4 weeks of professional practice in the field of Practical Dentistry.
Graduates are prepared to perform independently the practice of a dental practitioner in health care facilities of all types, to start training for obtaining professional certificates for the individual dentistry specialities and to start specialized training in orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and clinical dentistry. They can also find their path in the academic sphere and other institutions involved in science, research, development, and innovation, as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates also have the opportunity to continue in doctoral study programs.
Every applicant must have successfully completed secondary education (i.e. secondary school, high school, college, etc.) resulting in a school-leaving examination, rewarded with a final certificate/diploma (e.g. A-level certificates, IB diploma, etc.).
All applicants must provide their secondary school results and the final certificate in order to have their secondary education recognised in the Czech Republic.
Recognition of secondary education is required for the enrolment. The administrative fee for the recognition in the amount of 750 CZK must be paid online before the enrolment.
Every applicant must successfully pass the entrance examination tests (see information below). The applicant is allowed to sit the entrance examination only once per admission year.
Applicants from the USA and Canada can be accepted on the basis of MCAT tests results (minimum 24 or 500 points according to a year of passing) or DAT tests results (minimum 20 points).
Applicants from France can be accepted on the basis of PACES/MMOP results.
Applicants with A-level examination results from the academic year 2018/2019 at the latest can be accepted on the basis of minimum scores A (Chemistry), A (Biology), B (Physics or Mathematics).
Entrance Examination Requirements
The applicants are accepted on the basis of a written entrance exam consisting of three separate tests in the following subjects: Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics in cases of General Medicine and Dentistry.
Each test comprises 40 multiple choice questions with five options out of which only one answer is correct. Each test takes 60 minutes. No periodic tables or other reference materials are necessary, apart from a simple calculator.
The acceptance pass mark in Dentistry is 65%.
