The Faculty of Dentistry is aimed at training students in scientific knowledge, technical dental skills and in the treatment and rehabilitation of oral diseases within the framework of an integrated clinic. The main objective is to train professionals with an attitude open to the attention of people and with a spirit of service to society.

Located on the Sant Cugat Campus, it offers undergraduate studies in Dentistry, as well as a wide variety of postgraduate, master's, doctoral and continuing education courses in all dental areas: Prosthesis, Surgery, Endodontics, Orthodontics, Periodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Gerodontology and Preventive dental. An official master's degree in basic science research is also offered.

In the Faculty of Dentistry, research and cooperation with the dental industry, knowledge of new technologies, as well as international relations with other universities are some of the priority axes of the studies.

The Bachelor's Degree in Dentistry at UIC Barcelona will help you become a future professional who is capable of using good judgement and technical skill to prevent, treat and rehabilitate oral and dental disease.
