The Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) is a four-year professional degree 

Years 1 & 2:

  • Information on the first two years of the course can be found here.

Year 3:

Third year is dedicated to deepening the knowledge accumulated in the first two years in conservative and restorative streams in addition to broadening the scope of patient care by introducing mult-disciplinary dental units.  Students in third year will actively engage in a research project. Outcomes for third year students include:

  • Complex oral rehabilitation (deepening of preventive, conservative, restorative dentistry and oral surgery)
  • Diagnosis and management of common oral conditions (including pathology of the temporal mandibular joint)
  • Diagnosis and management of oral manifestations of systemic conditions
  • Dental management of medically-compromised patients and patients with special needs
  • Diagnosis and management of actute oro-facial trauma and infections.

Year 4:

  • The fourth and final year is dedicated to quasi-independent practice which will take place in and out of the School, with compulsory rural rotations
  • There is time allocated for lectures and case-based discussions throughout the year.  This includes the use of Problem Based Learning (PBL) sessions which involve brainstorming of particular cases by a group of students in order to come up with a solution.
