Overview

The subject of dentistry is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the teeth, mouth and jaw. Dentists are scientifically and practically trained for their profession during the course of their studies.

 

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

According to the valid license to practice medicine for dentists, the dentistry course is divided into a preclinical and a clinical section of five semesters each. After the 2nd semester the scientific preliminary examination is taken, after the 5th semester the dental preliminary examination is taken. The clinical course concludes after the 10th semester with the state examination in dentistry.

Details on studying dentistry can be found in the license to practice medicine for dentists and the current study regulations for the degree in dentistry at the Charité and on the website.

Pre-clinical stage of study

Dental preliminary examination

Clinical stage of study

The main subjects of the clinical part of the study are dental, oral and maxillary diseases, dental surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, dental conservation, periodontics, dentistry and orthodontics. The students are made familiar with anamnesis, diagnosis and prognosis as well as treatment planning and learn about dental treatment methods and surgical techniques.

In close connection with dentistry, there is instruction in pathology, pharmacology, hygiene, internal medicine, general surgery, dermatology and ENT medicine. After thorough preparation on the phantom head, the focus is on clinical-practical training. Treatment measures are carried out independently on patients under supervision.
