Practise-focused studies
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.

Study internationally
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:

Conservative Dentistry,
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.
