ErgoEn1 ErgoEn2     


     The course is aimed at providing skills for working in dental team; organisation, equipment and managing of dental practice in accordance with ergonomics, health and safety at work; ergonomics during dental treatment and ability in leading dental team; recognising factors harmful to health in work, residence and learning place. Evaluation criteria: Weighted average with equal validity (50%) of knowledge and skills.

2. Prophylaxis in dentistry (person responsible Rafał Wojda DDS). The course concerning dental prophylaxis takes place in the first semester, the total number of hours is 50 including 10 lectures, 20 seminars and 20 exercises.The course is providing knowledge about principles of preventive-therapeutic procedures in illnesses of the masticatory system in different stages of development, principles of preventing illnesses and reinforcing the health of the oral cavity, principles of planning and evaluating prophylactical actions, and principles of metabolism and alimentation. It is also providing skills for planning and implementing prophylactical procedures concerning the masticatory system, and providing patients with sufficient information about the promotion of oral cavity health. 

       The content of the course includes problems related to the preventive-therapeutic procedures in illnesses of the masticatory system, concerning orthodontical prophylactics, oncology and prothetical stomatopatia in particular.

3. Integrated Pre-clinical Education - Materials science module (person responsible Krzysztof Wilk DDS, PhD) – course takes place in the 3rd semester, the total number of hours is 60, including 15 lectures and 30 seminars and exercises. Course includes: overview of dental office equipment and the instruments used in dental procedures; principles of dental equipment, the definition and classification of basic and auxiliary dental materials; overview of the composition, construction, method of bonding, properties, purpose and use of dental materials and surface properties of tooth tissue and dental biomaterials; definition of the adhesion phenomenon and mechanisms of adhesion and procedures of adhesive preparation of surface enamel, dentin, and dental biomaterials. The curriculum also covers issues of mechanisms of degradation (corrosion) of dental biomaterials in the oral cavity and their effect on biological properties of the materials.



        The course is aimed at providing knowledge on the above-mentioned subjects and enhancing students’ skills for making choices of biomaterials, laboratory materials and bonding on the basis of their properties and use of adhesive techniques.

4. Integrated Pre-clinical Education - Preclinical conservative dentistry (person responsible Małgorzata Ponto-Wolska DDS, PhD). Course includes: providing knowledge about techniques of maintaining dryness of the technical field, anatomy of tooth, systems of marking teeth, principles of classification of carious lesions according to Black and methods for cavity preparation and filling lesions of classes I–V. Practical classes are carried out using phantom teeth.


      The course is aimed at providing knowledge and skills related to therapeutic procedures, rules of conduct in case of illnesses and injuries of teeth mineralised tissues. It is also providing skills for reconstructing missing tissues in phantom teeth, using adhesive techniques, choosing restorative biomaterials, and basic knowledge about clinical procedures of reconstruction of hard tissues of teeth.


5. Prosthodontics (person responsible Renata Lenkiewicz DDS). The content of the training includes anatomy and physiology of masticatory system, principles of occlusion, structure and function of temporomandibular joint and function of masticatory muscless, space relations of maxillo-mandibular positions, etiological factors of centric (non-functional) and eccentric (functional) occlusal disorders.


     The result of the training for the students the acquisition of knowledge of homeostasis, adaptation, structure, feed-back mechanisms and vicious circle mechanisms of masticatory system.The student should be able to foresee and also explain pathological mechanisms leading to system’s disorders, project the proper occlusion for a subject and perform occlusal analysis.


6. Physiology of the masticatory system (person responsible Renata Lenkiewicz DDS). The content of the training: anatomy and function of the masticatory system, physiology of deciduous and permanent dentition’s development, functions of different groups of teeth, reaction of the pulp to different stimuli, physiology of periodontium and oral mucosa, occlusion – it’s development and changes in the course of life, biomechanics of temporomandibular joint. Curriculum also includes knowledge of physiology of such activities as mastication, swallowing and speech.


      The result of the training for the student is the acquisition of knowledge of masticatory system’s structures, regarding structures, function, development of anatomical parts in mutual correlations, principles of statics and biomechanics of the masticatory system, understanding the essential life functions within it, principles of occlusion in different life stages, the role of the nervous system for correlation of functions, appropriate interpretation of phenomenons occurring in the masticatory system.

7. Integrated Pre-clinical Education -Preclinical endodontics (person responsible Łukasz Zadrożny DDS). The course includes subjects of teeth chambers anatomy, endodontic instruments (according ISO standards), dental materials used in endodontic treatment and hand-on’s of endodontic procedures on phantoms.


       The course is aimed to provide knowledge and abilities to perform basic endodontic procedures. Student should get a knowledge of teeth chambers morphology, principles of endodontic treatment, instruments and basic techniques of rebuilding teeth after endodontic treatment.                                                                                          


Integrated Pre-clinical Education - Evaluation criteria: Weighted average of each module with equal validity (50%) of knowledge and skills. Passing of all modules is required for admission to the examination.                      


8. Prosthetic dentistry (persons responsible Krzysztof Wilk DDS, PhD, Rafał Wojda DDS). Educational goals and aims:
- gaining knowledge regarding usage of basic and auxiliary dental materials and technical and laboratory
  conduct procedures in prosthetic restorations
gaining knowledge of choosing materials used in dental prosthetics
gaining the ability to design prosthetic restorations and model anatomic occlusion conditions.

       The course is aimed to provide knowledge of purpose and usage method of basic and auxiliary prosthetic materials, knowledge of crown and root teeth preparation, taking impressions, wax modelling of inlays, crowns and bridges, their laboratory performance procedure, indications and contraindications towards usage of permanent restorations, types of bridge spans and their relation to the base. The course is aimed to provide abilities to choose prosthetic materials at performing removable and permamnent restorations, ability to perform occlusal models, establish occlusion height on a fantom model, fix models in articulator, set teeth according to Gysi and model a prosthetic plate and ability to develop teeth towards fully-ceramic crown, ceramic cast bridge and crown and root canal post, take two-layered impression, perform a divided model, model an inlay made of ceramic material, adjust and fix it and perform a temporary crown on a fantom model.
