Dental students


Study of dentistry

Studies at German universities are in accordance with the approbation regulations from 1955. Graduates leave the university as scientifically and clinically educated dentists. Normally, the study of dentistry takes about 11 semesters including the time of examination, which totals 5 1/2 years. The study programme is divided into a preclinical and clinical stage.

The preclinical stage is characterised by dental laboratory courses and the teaching of the basics in science and medicine within the subjects chemistry, physics, anatomy, biochemistry and physiology.

The clinical stage is dedicated to the "holistic" treatment of dental patients under the supervision and advice of faculty staff based on clinically oriented theoretical principles in relationship to the relevant medical subjects.

Different courses a the Department of Conservative Dentistry

Conservative dentistry covers following lectures and courses within the dental school curriculum:

Dental skill laboratory

This course prepares dental students for the treatment of patients. The students are now in the sixth semester of dental studies, but in their first clinical semester. The latter follows the preliminary dental examination (at the end of the preclinical stage).

Course 1

Course 1 of conservative dentistry is the first course in which dental students actually are treating patients. They are now in their second clinical semester (seventh semsester of study).
Theoretical and practical knowledge achieved in the areas of cariology, endodontology, prophylaxis and periodontology during preliminary studies and in the dental skill laboratory are applied on the patient for the first time.

Course 2

Course 2 of conservative dentistry takes place in the fifth and at the same time last clinical semester (tenth semester of study) and builts on the foundation of other courses of conservative dentistry. By repeating, extending and rounding off the contents a link shall be established with the other disciplines of dental medicine.

State examination

The state examination finalizes the dental study. The oral and practical examinations in the area of conservative dentistry normally take five days and comprise three areas: 1) cariology and endodontology; 2) periodontology; and 3) preventive dentistry.
