Academic, scientific or professional interest:

Dentistry studies provide future dentists with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent, diagnose and treat health problems that are linked with teeth, jawbones, the mouth and oral tissues. In addition, the importance of a continued training is highlighted, as this is fundamental in order for graduates to incorporate scientific and technical advancements into their daily clinical practice. Communication with patients is also an area that is focused on, because their characteristics must be taken into consideration, in order to allow them to play a role in the therapeutic decisions made.

Worth Noting:

In the fifth academic year, students must carry out tutored practicum, that will allow them to acquire the necessary practical knowledge to work autonomously.

The tutored practicum involve active participation in health services and working on real clinical cases.

The following hospitals are linked to the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry: University Hospital Clinic, La Fe University Hospital, General University Hospital and Doctor Peset University Hospital. The University of Valencia also has its own Dentistry Clinic where students are trained to attend to external patients.
