Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly lectures, seminars, case studies, and case presentations allow the trainees to develop a strong theoretical knowledge base.

 

The 3-years course of study in pediatric dentistry provides students with the background information and clinical experience necessary for the practice of pediatric dentistry.

 

Year one focuses on advanced pediatric dentistry (theoretical issues) and clinical treatment of children. Students develop a sound basis in:

  • Anatomy, biology, physiology…
  • Growth and development
  • Behavior management
  • Physical evaluation
  • Research methodology
  • Statistics
  • Prevention
  • Pediatric dental literature

 

Second-year studies concentrate on dental care of children with physical, mental, and emotional disorders. In the second year, the hospital dentistry begins. Students gain experience in operating room procedures, general anesthesia techniques, conscious sedation, and treating children with medical disabilities in the hospital environment.

 

In the third year, the residents visit special cases as well as doing their dissertation.

 

At the end of each year, the residents should pass an exam so that they can continue the course.
