D.D.S. is a six-year program which consists of a competency-based educational plan with emphasis on prevention caring, so that graduate students, besides sufficient and comprehensive knowledge in up-to-date dentistry sciences, have the skills for visiting patients and treating different kinds of oral and dental diseases. In this program, students pass basic sciences in two years and then enter the clinic for 4 years in order to pass courses in all dentistry departments and learn the diagnosis of different kinds of diseases in each department. As a result of working with numerous patients, students will become highly skilled in their clinical stage.

The students pass pre-clinic courses in the fifth semester in laboratories with different kinds of moulages and educational models that are simulated with real clinical conditions and patients. After acquiring the requirements, eligible students enter the clinics, and visit and treat patients. In the clinical stage, students (in small groups) enter the clinic and treat patients. Students of Community Dentistry program enter the field and start the process of screening patients in the society.
In the twelfth semester, students who have acquired enough skills as interns or pre-doctoral students enter the main clinic and visit patients in a similar fashion to practices in a private office under the supervision of proficient professors. In the main clinic, students, besides making medical files for the main treatment program, treat all kinds of dental problems of patients. At the end of this semester, students test their scientific and practical capabilities by taking a final exam.
