Prior to departing to clinics as trainee physicians, we train our 3rd grade students in the phantom patient simulation laboratory, with 30 models and equipment. On the other hand, there are 30 dental units in our integrated clinic belonging to eight departments, where clinical studies are conducted. We carry out our basic and clinical training in Dentistry, with a large number of faculty members who are experts in their field, and have a lot of field experience. We aim to present the requirements of modern medical education in the best way possible, with our Faculty of Medicine Faculty members who contribute to our basic medical education.

Our goal is to contribute to shaping a better future with our academic, scientific and cultural activities, and adopt participation and teamwork, focusing on qualified research, using all the possibilities of modern dentistry and providing the best diagnosis and treatment of oral and dental diseases without compromising ethical values, to become a leading faculty that educates dentists who are experts in their field, that cares about environmental health and prioritizes preventive health services, sets an example at national and international levels by strengthening the innovation culture with a competitive understanding, and be a faculty that maintains its brand value by ensuring effective cooperation with its academic and administrative stakeholders.
