4-year flexible. Elementary clinical treatment of patients begins at the end of the first year, including restorative dentistry in the third semester. Conversely, some basic science courses are not completed until the senior year. Treatment of patients is carried out in a system of comprehensive care, rather than in block assignments, so as to simulate private practice of general dentistry. Students participate in off-campus clinical experiences in the summer between the third and fourth years. Students must spend their time in such settings as public health clinics and charitable health programs, as well as at private or government institutions.
