This department have developed new concepts and techniques for treatment of severely damaged teeth by using biomaterials.
The departmental structure of the dental education program reflects a
commitment to build strong bridges between the clinical practice and
sciences in cariology, pulp biology, dental materials, preventive
measures, operative, advanced restorative and esthetic dentistry.
It is an approach that is beneficial for training competent oral
health care providers who will contribute meaningfully to provide oral
health care, caries preventive procedures, minimally invasive
restorative dentistry using different types of direct or indirect
restorative materials therefore, it contributes in providing a
multidisciplinary approach in the diagnosis and management of patients’
and functional esthetics needs.
· To Educate undergraduate dental students with respect to
cariology, caries diagnosis, novel dental materials and preventive
measures and operative dentistry procedures including tooth filling with
resin composite materials or glass ionomer cements or amalgam that all
these can improve oral health care of patients
· To train pre-doctoral students in research methodology and conducting a dissertation research thesis.
· To educate Postgraduate students
During their didactic curriculum, post graduate students attendant:
-Pulp biology and regeneration seminars
- Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) and occlusion seminars,
-Tooth wear management seminars
-Advanced operative and restorative and esthetics-oriented classes
- Laboratory hands-on sessions
-Comprehensive evidence-based restorative and esthetic dentistry literature review
- multi-disciplinary oriented lectures including treatment planning seminars
-comprehensive evidence-based perio-implant literature review and prosthodontics treatment planning
Post graduate students achieved skills including simple to more
extensive smile reconstruction including teeth whitening, direct
composite restorations, porcelain laminate veneers, all-ceramic and
porcelain-fused-to-metal restoration, computer-aided
design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) restorations, and
implant-supported crowns and bridges.
Postgraduate student is also required to conduct an original research
project as part of his/her preparation for the dissertation/thesis
Students learn treatment planning and record-keeping techniques that
they apply to each patient. They are required to present such
information in roundtable discussions with faculty members. The process
enables students to develop effective management and administrative
Graduates of the program have reported a real sense of satisfaction and
enjoyment from their clinical work as well as a substantial increase in
their confidence and an ability to manage challenging restorative
dentistry cases that they would have been unable to attempt prior to the
