The Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) is a five-year programme that aims to produce competent, caring, and knowledgeable dental practitioners.
From the early onset of the programme, students are exposed to early patient contact and clinical training with an emphasis on recognition and prevention of oral diseases. The dynamic curriculum is delivered within a problem-based learning approach, focusing on contextual learning of relevant scientific information. The curriculum also reflects the way in which students are expected to identify and address clinical problems, placing a higher emphasis on delivery through engagement with the students.
The Faculty of Dentistry at SEGi University is equipped with a fully functioning dental clinic and many in-house dental professionals and auxiliaries. Here, students are given hands-on practical training, which provides insights into working as a dental team and with patients.
SEGi Oral Health Centre is designed to meet industry standards and is monitored by various agencies. The dental profession includes those who provide direct patient care, those who teach, conduct research, and work in public health and international health settings. All these individuals are vital links in the health care delivery system, necessary to promote social and economic change as well as individual well-being.
SEGi’s Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) programme is recognised by Maldives.
