Faculty of Oral and Dental Medicine Departments
Basic Dentistry Sciences provide the proper basic information that introduces students to their future preclinical and clinical levels. Human dentition is a preliminary course taught to level 1 students as HMD101 & 102; 3 credit hours each. It requires learning about the morphology and anatomical landmarks of teeth in the human dentitions and knowledge of how the shape, form, structure, color and function of the teeth relate to each other in the same dental arch and to the teeth in the opposing arch. They start practicing their practical skills through wax carving simulating natural teeth. Oral biology is introduced in level 2 as two courses (ORB201& 202); 3 credit hours each. It studies the microscopic as well as the ultra- structure of oral soft and hard tissues which permits better understanding of these tissue reactions towards changes in the oral environmental conditions. In addition to the necessary developmental information about oral and maxillofacial structures which help to understand the anatomical and histological background of oral and paroral tissues. Oral physiology (OPH201) is a 1 credit hour course that provides further strengthens the students’ knowledge regarding the physiological aspects of the oral tissues. The course of oral pathology is educated in level 3. It consists of two courses; 3 credit hours each. In ORP301 we educate students the basic principles of pathology through presentation of morphologic, chemical and physical changes of basic disease processes. Also, the knowledge of the nature of the different odontogenic oral diseases by explaining the cellular behavior of each lesion at the microscopic level. While in ORP302, we educate students the mechanism and pathogenesis of the different non odontogenic oral diseases, to enable students understand the prognosis of the different oral lesions which will make them able to select the appropriate treatment plan for each lesion.
- Removable prosthodontic is a branch of prosthodontic department. This branch is concerned with replacing any missing part of the oral or maxillofacial structure .lt consists of four branches complete denture ,removable partial denture , maxillofacial , and occlusion.
- Fixed prosthodontics is a branch of prosthodontic department. That focuses on dental prostheses that are permanently attached (fixed). Crowns, bridges (fixed dentures), inlays, onlays, and veneers are some examples of indirect dental restorations. Prosthodontists are dentists who have completed training in this field that has been recognized by academic institutions. Fixed prosthodontics can be used to restore single or multiple teeth, spanning tooth loss areas. The main advantages of fixed prosthodontics over direct restorations are superior strength in large restorations and the ability to create an aesthetic looking tooth. Principles used to determine the appropriate restoration, as with any dental restoration, include consideration of the materials to be used, extent of tooth destruction, orientation and location of tooth, and neighboring teeth condition.
- Dental Biomaterial is a branch of prosthodontic department. It concerns with the study of three main courses included in the oral and dental medicine faculty program under supervision of highly qualified professors, staff members and teaching assistants.
- The students are allowed to register in the following courses: DBM 201 in the second year first semester, DBM 202 in the second year second semester and DBM 301 in the third year first semester.
- Studying of these courses will enable the students to be aware of the different properties of the materials used in dentistry either in the clinics or in the laboratories. The students will be also able to professionally manipulate all the dental materials and to select the proper material needed for a specific treatment to a particular patient based on the knowledge previously introduced to them.
- The first course, DBM 201, includes the basic sciences e.g. chemistry, physics, engineering, etc. which will furnish the ground for the study of the dental materials. The second course, DBM 202, includes the study of the materials used in the conservative and aesthetic dentistry and their applications in details. The third course, DBM 301, includes the study of the materials used in the prosthetic dentistry and their applications in details.
- The courses are integrated together and correlated to the actual clinical work in the clinical departments.
- Completing the study of these courses, the students will have all the knowledge related to the basics and applications of the dental materials and will be able to work using them on a solid scientific base.
- Finally, the students are trained on the problem based and thinking based learning to be able to solve problems and think in a scientific logical way.
- Provide five undergraduate student courses (ORS401,ORS402,ORRS501,ORS502) (Clinical and theorical courses) ORS 402 Implant (theory only).
- Staff members include about 15 members (3 Professors, 2Lecturers and 1Assistant lecturer,7 Teaching Assistants).

- Interns monthly training including (practical, Seminars, implant workshop).
- OMFS shares by scientific update Lectures and workshops for undergraduate, interns and postgraduate incorporation with scientific activity center.
- Staff members share in services of VIP clinic.
- Conservative Dentistry program is based on three years didactic lectures and practical training. The didactic component which consists of lectures of assigned topics related to operative basics, cariology, diagnosis and esthetics in restorative dentistry which assure that each student acquired the technical knowledge, and updated information in the field of operative esthetic dentistry. Second the laboratory and the clinical portion which offer each student reinforced pre-clinical knowledge, clinical practice, and skills to deliver with competency high quality restoration to the patients. By the end of this program, the students should be able to perform a proper clinical diagnosis and develop a formulated comprehensive problem-based treatment plan, effectively manage simple and complicated restorative dental cases, starting sequentially within complete oral rehabilitation cases in caries prevention, diagnosis, cavity preparation, restoration, and maintenance of a good oral health for these patients and present their work in case presentations. The student will gain more experience in the field of esthetic dentistry, as each student is expected to carryout esthetic restorative procedures under close senior staff supervision and be aware of all concepts, fundamentals & various treatment modalities and recent strategies in the field of conservative dentistry to master handling and application of all esthetic restorative materials.
