About the Program

The Faculty of Dentistry aims to become a leading faculty in public health, which train qualified Dentists who can reach information by using science and technology at the highest level, being inquisitive, having ethical values, implementing the knowledge and skills to apply in the health sector. Dentistry program education covers the sub-departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, Pediatric Dentistry, Endodontics, Orthodontics, Periodontology, Prosthetic Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry. The Faculty’s qualified academic staff trains students in laboratories that incorporate the latest developments of modern technology in order to gain the necessary hand skills and clinical competencies during their education.

Education Opportunities

The Faculty of Dentistry has all the laboratories needed in the first three years of basic education and in the clinical sciences program in the 4th and 5th years, as well as digitally shared and modern lecture halls suitable for distance online education, where theoretical courses are held. Especially before the clinical sciences program, students are given training in the phantom patient simulation laboratory with models and advanced equipment. There are also dental units and local operating rooms in the integrated clinic of the departments where clinical studies are carried out.

The main aim of this course is to link biophysical principles to human physiological function and to working principles of medical devices. Biological systems are not static molecules and large structures move from one place to another so this course will start with discussing diffusion and its limitation on whether or not a molecule can participate in physiological process. The physical separation of the intracellular fluid in the cytoplasm from the interstitial fluid by cell membranes produces special properties. One of this properties is differential electrical functions of membrane. Therefore, significant amount of time will be spent in discussing membrane behavior and bioelectricity.
