Information about Dentistry Degrees

Dentistry is a broad subject, which focuses not only on the health of your teeth, but on all issues related to the human skull: from the jaw to the cranium, as well as the health of the facial region. Dentists play a vital role in ensuring that all maxillofacial structures are in proper working order and that everything is healthy and kept in its place.

Studying a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Dentistry lets you specialise in Head and Neck Anatomy, Surgical Techniques, Implant Surgery, Forensic Dentistry, and Biomaterials and Ergonomics in Oral Diseases. Regardless of your choice, Dentistry will always require good manual dexterity, problem-solving skills, and visual memory. What also turns a good dentist into a great one is their awareness of the pain tolerance of the patient and trying to cause them as little stress as possible.

During Dentistry courses, you will learn about the overall health of the oral cavity. You’ll discover numerous dental procedures, as well as diagnosing and treating methods, and the tools needed to apply them. Dental care doesn't only involve implants, extractions, and treating cavities, but also teaching people how to prevent these problems from occurring in the first place.

After graduation, most students work as dentists, dental hygienists, or dental assistants.
