Dental Technology meets the demands for modern solutions in the design of prostheses, orthodontic appliances and implants. Development of society, prolonging life expectancy and increasing quality of life is made possible by scientific and technical progress. Thanks to increased social awareness of the possibilities of modern medicine and engineering, the demand for implants and the use of prostheses is increasing.
Designers of prostheses, orthodontic appliances and implants are required to have knowledge covering the basics of medicine, dentistry, materials engineering, mechanics and other related scientific fields. The level of complexity of these constructions means that highly qualified staff with broad skills beyond the areas of dentistry and materials engineering are needed.
The Dental Technology studies aim at preparing graduates who can meet these challenges.
In the course of the study, the student will become familiar with medical and engineering basics of prosthetic and orthodontic techniques and principles of their design, execution and repair. The student will not only learn the basic issues of biomechanics in dental technologies, implantology, physiotherapy of the stomatognathic system and dental prophylaxis, but also the basics of social sciences, law, economics and management.
Gaining professional problem-solving skills will enable graduates to work in healthcare institutions or run their own technical-dental practice.
