The Dentistry Program within the “Dimitrie Cantemir” University of Târgu Mureș was established in 2017. The study program was authorized by the G.D. no. 615/2017 and has the mission to train professionals in this field.
The idea of establishing the Faculty of Dentistry was determined both by the old cultural-scientific traditions of our city and by the existence, since 1992, of the Postgraduate School of Dental Technique “Dimitrie Cantemir”, which was later authorized for the training of nurses. general practitioners and pharmacy nurses.
The faculty has a strong material base, the necessary laboratories and practice spaces being provided for a complete cycle of studies and a valuable teaching staff. In the next stage, the investment objectives include, among others, the construction of a dental clinic in the “Dimitrie Cantemir” Campus.
