The first year of the program is to build the foundation in the medical sciences and general dentistry, where students spend most of the year learning about the natural structure and functions of the human body through descriptive anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and general biology. In addition, students learn about preventive medicine and basic principles of physics and biostatistics.

In the second-year students begin to expand the knowledge base in the general medical sciences through a series of courses such as microbiology and immunology, general and oral histology, embryology, and head and neck anatomy with a focus on restorative materials. The focus is also on students' knowledge of fixed and removable prosthodontics and prosthetic materials also on developing their manual skills through laboratory classes.

In the third-year students begin to recognize the abnormalities and changes that may occur in the oral cavity and head and neck area through courses such as oral pathology, pharmacology and radiology of the face and jaw. The focus is also on increasing students' knowledge of dentistry and dental prostheses and on developing their manual skills through theoretical lectures and laboratory sessions. Moreover, students expand the knowledge base of general medical sciences through a range of courses such as internal medicine, general surgery, ear, nose and throat surgery, and eye diseases. These courses are intended to reaffirm basic medical principles necessary to understand and manage complex clinical cases that can be encountered during clinical practice.

In the fourth-year students begin to deal with patients, collect clinical information from them, examine them clinically, integrate this information, analyze and identify their oral health problems, and start the various dental treatments that cover most cases and dental specialties under the supervision and guidance of professors from all disciplines in different clinical courses. At this stage, emphasis is placed on increasing the clinical skills of students in diagnosis, the development of treatment plans, and the management and treatment of cases in an integrated manner.

The program ends in the fifth year, where most of the cases scheduled for treatment this year are within the scope of comprehensive and integrated dental treatment. All departments of the College are collaborating at this stage to oversee clinical treatments with a wide range of supervisors in all disciplines of dentistry.
