The British University in Egypt, Faculty of Dentistry is committed to graduate dentists who are fully aware of their place and duties in society and are characterized by theoretical knowledge, clinical skills and a well-rounded personality. This means the dental graduate should be provided with professional knowledge of different dental fields of specialization, contemporary applications, and latest developments in dentistry as well as the dental skills necessary to deliver this knowledge to patients in terms of proper diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution. All this takes place within a framework of ethics while keeping the welfare of their patients at the forefront of their thoughts.
The methods of instruction at our Faculty include lectures, tutorials, seminars, practical, laboratory technical work, demonstrations, and specialised clinics for treatment of patients under staff supervision.
The teaching, clinical training, and assessment are geared to developing students' analytical and problem-solving skills. Problem-based learning (PBL) will be introduced. This involves the presentation of a clinical problem to students that they will analyse and then look for the needed information themselves. This will train the students to be independent learners, an important trait to acquire for survival in the contemporary rapidly developing world. Assignments and research projects will be given strong emphasis in the curriculum. Teaching, learning and assessment will be progressive throughout the programs to encourage the transition from dependent to independent learning so that the graduates become increasingly self-reliant and responsible for their own learning.
