School Of Dentistry

Our curriculum provides students with opportunities to learn the fundamental principles significant to the entire body of dental knowledge. Students are expected to learn basic health sciences, get proficiency in clinical skills, and develop an understanding of professional and ethical principles as well as reasoning and learning critical decision-making skills that will enable them to implement the dental knowledge base.

The priority of IMU School of Dentistry is to ensure a high level of education by providing the students with the most up-to-date information and technological development. We, therefore, intend to provide research opportunities for students and staff and, thus, to contribute to academic development at an international level.

The duration of education in School of Dentistry is five years, preceded by one year of English language teaching for those who fail in a proficiency exam. During subsequent dental education, minimally 30% of the courses are instructed in English.

The first year courses comprises lectures and laboratory, and preclinical activities in basic sciences, dental anatomy, occlusion, and dental materials. In the second year, students are expected to develop additional preclinical skills, learn how basic science principles are applied to the clinical settings, and get involved in clinical applications. Students who complete the first two years are awarded a basic medical sciences diploma. In the third, fourth, and fifth years, students practice main clinical treatments with concomitant lectures that refine technical and diagnostic skills. Students are required to take a minimum of two electives that are chosen from courses offered by all departments, including courses of independent study, research, and special topics.

Recently inaugurated within the Golden Horn Campus, IMU Dental Hospital is one of the largest ones in the area, and it offers impeccable service to its patients.
