How Long is a Dentistry Degree and Course Structure
Dentistry in Romania generally lasts for six years, at the end of your course you will be awarded a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) Masters Degree diploma. The course structure can vary from university to university but they generally follow the same stomatological disciplines such as Orthodontics, Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontology, Odontology and Prosthetics.
The six years are sectioned into two categories:
• 62% Stomatological disciplines • 38% Medical, Surgical and Fundamental disciplines
Similar to medical schools in Europe the course is split into three years of pre-clinical studies and three years of clinical training. Dental students also have to take modules in general medicine so as to provide the basic and fundamental knowledge of human physiology and biochemistry.
In accordance with European standards and practice as well as West-European educational systems, new updates are regularly added and updated as necessary. For example, modules that were recently added are Biomaterials, Bioequipment, Implantology, Management and Dental Aesthetics.
Students are given the chance to test their theoretical and practical knowledge in university affiliated dental hospitals and clinics as part of their training during the summer practice period, this is normally a minimum of 4-weeks per year and is mandatory up to the sixth year of study.
After the final examination session and dissertation the student has the choice for optional specialisation either within Romania or abroad. The student is then awarded the title of Dentist and given their diploma.
