PRESENTATION

DEGREE OBJECTIVES
  • The primary aim of the Degree in Dentistry is to train professionals in the field of oral health so that they can apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the degree to assess, diagnose and treat patients’ needs in this field in an optimal way, as well as to promote healthy living habits.
  • Through prestigious teaching staff with extensive experience in the field, students receive balanced training in all aspects related to dentistry: abnormalities and diseases of the mouth, jaws and surrounding tissues. In addition, we offer training that goes beyond mere knowledge, drawing from ethical principles whilst taking social skills into account, including good communication with the patient, so that the graduates can carry out their profession according to values such as respect and dignity.
  • At our university, we are committed to academic and professional excellence, as well as to the comprehensive training of our students, teaching quality, innovation, research, internships, internationalization and to the crucial full employment of our students.

 

WHY CHOOSE THE BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN DENTISTRY AT CEU?

The academic structure that we offer our future students has been developed through many years of experience of pedagogical innovation and adaptation to the constant demands of society. Therefore, our degrees and qualifications respond to a global world and follow the criteria of the new teaching model of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

WHY CHOOSE THE BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN DENTISTRY?

Among the most frequent conditions experienced by the population are diseases or oral problems such as tooth decay. Thanks to the work of dentists, mainly, society is increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining good oral health as well as the aesthetic advantages of a beautiful smile. This is why visiting the dentist nowadays is a must for everyone, from childhood to old age, on an annual basis for monitoring and prevention purposes. When there are also problems resulting from unbalanced nutrition, genetic predisposition, poor oral hygiene, smoking and other harmful habits, the number of visits required will increase considerably.

Therefore, there is a permanent and significant demand for good dentists who help prevent, diagnose and treat the range of oral problems.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Dentistry provides our students with a comprehensive scientific training of the highest quality without neglecting other values that are also very important for being a good dentist, such as ethical principles, effective communication, both with patients and with other professionals, etc.

All of this is possible thanks to an excellent combination of theory-based and practical training. Basic core subjects that are the basis of scientific knowledge are covered during the first years, while the final years focus on more practical work, as well as more specialist subjects of dentistry.

This profession has always had, and continues to have, an important demand in society, opening doors to a wide range of employment opportunities. Not only in the private sector, whether working for others or setting up your own dentist clinic, but also in the public sector, both inside and outside of Spain. In addition, nowadays more and more interesting lines of research are emerging, such as those on new materials for dental implants or treatments for different conditions, etc.

DUAL-MODE APPROACH IN THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2020/2021

For the 2020/21 academic year, the CEU San Pablo university has developed a dual-mode approach that allows students to go to class on campus, while also allowing them to connect digitally to the classroom.

To offer this dual-mode approach, the CEU is has equipped its classrooms with the HyFlex system. It is a system to develop interactive sessions with students who are in the classroom and with those who participate live from home. This way, everyone (wherever they are) can participate in the class session in person. This dual-mode approach allows for physical presence or digital interactive presence.

PROFILE OF NEW STUDENTS

To define the ideal profile of new students who wish to be accepted onto this degree, we consider the final educational objectives that we aim to achieve, in three aspects:

Students. Students should have a solid foundation in subjects related to health sciences, e.g. biology. In terms of attitude, they must show interest in the needs of oral health, as well as in the different treatments and care they may require. They must also demonstrate responsibility in all of the tasks they carry out and be willing to make an effort and work hard, both individually and as part of a team. Therefore, in the selection process, we focus on the candidate’s motivation and abilities in relation to the above requirements.

Future professionals. At the end of this degree, students will have acquired the knowledge, skills, attitudes and competences that will enable them to independently practice dentistry with optimal results. We also encourage our students to appreciate the need for professional development and lifelong learning, as well as the effective harnessing of advances in knowledge and technology.

 

Training. To facilitate the student’s future integration into professional life, this degree offers comprehensive, theory-based and practical training, thanks to which our students acquire the clinical skills necessary to meet the demands of oral health within society. We also encourage our students to develop professional attitudes and behaviors for effective and adequate interaction with patients and other health professionals.

As for the high school diploma taken by students, an option in which specific health science subjects have been completed is desirable.

Mobility

ERASMUS +

Students of the Degree in Dentistry have different options to enjoy an international experience. They can participate in an international mobility within the Erasmus + Program of the European Commission or through Bilateral Agreements of exchange agreed between the CEU San Pablo University and other foreign Universities.

The recommended period for this mobility is usually at the end of the Degree, during the last years. Moreover, the number of international students who choose the CEU for their education is increasing, so there is an international environment throughout the University.

OUTGOING STUDENTS

The student of this Degree will have international relations coordinators, who will have the task of orienting the students about the existing agreements for their degree program and accompany them throughout the mobility process.

Likewise, we will advise you on the convenience or non-convenience of travelling to certain destinations, according to the circumstances and context of the place, looking for an alternative of mobility, both virtual and face-to-face.

INCOMING STUDENTS: BLENDED MOBILITY

Since the 2020-21 academic year, the equipment in our classrooms, the interactive teaching methodology and the new technologies allow the incoming students to take part in blended mobilities at the CEU San Pablo University, combining a virtual semester with a face-to-face one.

Toda la información sobre movilidad la proporciona el Vicerrectorado de Relaciones Internacionales a través de su web y de la oficina de movilidad.

All information regarding mobility is provided by the Vice-Rectorate of International Relations through its website and the mobility office.

INTERNATIONALIZATION AT HOME: CEU GLOBAL CLASSROOM AND COIL METHODOLOGY

An international university is also an interconnected university in its broader sense. Therefore, the CEU Educational Group is developing a new educational strategy, based on internationalization at home, through the innovative COIL projects.

COIL is the acronym for Collaborative Online International Learning, a pioneer interactive methodology. It consists of digital classes between professors from two different universities and countries, which allows bringing the experience of global learning to a wider spectrum of students, regardless of their geographical location and without leaving home.

The COIL modules are born from the collaboration of our Schools with other international centers for the development of common digital projects, integrated into the study plans, ensuring that they are adapted to the CEU methodology and to the academic needs of our students.

We have international COIL projects in all the Schools, in our two campuses; partners in the United States, Europe, Latin America, etc. Our experience in pedagogical innovation and internationalization is our best guarantee.

Contact us if you belong to a foreign university and want to be a partner of the USP-CEU in the design and implementation of COIL projects.
