Dear Dentistry Students,
Welcome to Ankara Medipol University Faculty of Dentistry.
Dentistry is a respected profession both in the provision and protection of general health and in providing the patient with optimum maxillofacial function and aesthetics. Our faculty has started its education in the 2020-2021 academic year with the Turkish and English Dentistry Program with its highly competent, experienced, dynamic, national, and international visionary academic staff. Our goal is to go beyond classical education models and contemporary and well-educated dentists who adopt the notion of medicine and can use modern and advanced technology and follow dental innovations.
In the first two years of our 5-year dentistry education program, Dentistry Students will have the advantage of taking Basic Medical Sciences courses with the Students of the Faculty of Medicine to set up substructure of being qualified dentists. In addition, our valuable colleague candidates will participate interactively in clinical studies as observers under the responsibility of our academic staff at the Ankara Medipol University Faculty of Dentistry Hospital and Clinics after starting their education in Ankara Medipol University, Faculty of Dentistry. Another thing that we care about as academicians is that our clinical internship training starts in the second semester of the 3rd year and continues intensively in the last three years of our education program under the supervision of our teaching staff.
As the academic staff of the Faculty of Dentistry of Ankara Medipol University, we believe that we will train successful dentists who have a good command of innovations in their profession in theory and practice, adhere to ethical rules and professional principles, value people, respect all living things, love their profession, empathize in their social and professional life, know how to access information, and have high self-confidence thanks to our experience, scientific infrastructure and physical facilities, and compact and effective education system.
