EUROPE DENTAL EDUCATION:
During the last thirty years different activities in harmonization of European higher education have lead dental education also to face continuous changes. The dental directive defining an independent dental degree based on five year curriculum was issued in 1978. This Directive includes the educational requirements concerning the recognition of Diplomas, Certificates and other qualifications of dental practitioner.
US DENTAL EDUCATION:
There are limited opportunities for dental education in the United States with only 4,440 graduating in 2003, down from 5,750 in 1982. The average dental student graduates with over $200,000 in debt. In the United States, dentists earn either a D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) or D.M.D.(Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree. There are 56 accredited dental schools in the United States requiring 4 years of post-graduate study.
MIDDLE EAST DENTAL EDUCATION:
Dentists require six years of post-secondary education. The whole program is one single degree of D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery). After this, those wishing to specialize in a particular field may pursue higher education. Upon graduation, a dentist may need to fulfill two years of military service or governmental service in order to collect enough scores to start in private.
Digital dentistry may be defined in a broad scope as any dental technology or device that incorporates digital or computer-controlled components in contrast to that of mechanical or electrical alone. This broad definition can range from the most commonly thought area of digital dentistry — CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) — to those that may not even be recognized, such as computer-controlled delivery of nitrous oxide.
2. LASER DENTISTRY:
The benefit of laser dentistry is that it offers a much less invasive alternative to many procedures. The light energy that is emitted from lasers results in a shortened and almost painless healing period. This option is commonly available for the treatment of benign tumors, cold sores, crown lengthening.
3. NANO DENTISTRY:
Nanotechnology has tremendous potential to revolutionize dentistry as a whole and can also introduce significant benefits to human society by improving health and presenting better use of natural resources. Nanomaterials and nanoparticles are likely to be cornerstones of innovative nanodental applications. It is believed that Nano dentistry will improve the human quality of life for the twenty-first century.
Oral sedation dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States and Canada to quell patient fears. The technique is easy and requires no needles. It is as if they slept through the treatment. In reality, oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation. This local anaesthetic will temporarily block pain impulses from affected teeth and gum tissue.
Bonding is a procedure that uses a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a tooth. Bonding can be used on teeth that are decayed, chipped, broken or discoloured. Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front parts of teeth. If most of the tooth remains, veneers can improve the look of the tooth without cutting it down enough to place a crown. They are similar to artificial fingernails. A dental inlay or on lay is bigger than a filling and smaller than a crown. It is bonded or cemented into place. The purpose is to change the length, shape or surface contours of a tooth. This is a relatively quick and painless procedure. It is also called tooth reshaping or odontoplasty. Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration.
Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which involves the diagnosis, surgery and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. More simply put, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon is the orthopedic surgeon of the facial region.
Pediatric dentistry is a specialty that adapts techniques and procedures from general dentistry and specialties to provide primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for children. Pediatric dentists treat a broad range of diseases in infants, children and adolescents, including those with special health care needs.
Restorative Dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the oral cavity, the teeth and supporting structures. It includes the rehabilitation of the teeth and the oral cavity to functional, psychological and aesthetic requirements of the individual patient, including the co-ordination of multi-professional working to achieve these objectives. Restorative dentistry encompasses the dental specialist of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.
Forensic dentistry or forensic odontology is the application of dental knowledge to those criminal and civil laws that are enforced by police agencies in a criminal justice system. Forensic dentists are involved in assisting investigative agencies to identify recovered human remains in addition to the identification of whole or fragmented bodies. The evidence that may be derived from teeth is the age (in children) and identification of the person to whom the teeth belong. This is done using dental records including radiographs, ante-mortem (prior to death) and post-mortem photographs and DNA.
A dentist anesthesiologist is a dentist who has successfully completed an accredited postdoctoral anesthesiology residency training program for dentists of three or more years duration, in accord with Commission on Dental Accreditation’s Standards for Dental Anesthesiology Residency Programs, and/or meets the eligibility requirements for examination by the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology.
11. HOLISTIC DENTISTRY:
Holistic dentistry also called biologic dentistry, alternative dentistry, unconventional dentistry, or biocompatible dentistry is the equivalent of complementary and alternative medicine for dentistry. Holistic dentistry emphasizes approaches to dental care said to consider dental health in the context of the patient's entire physical as well as emotional or spiritual health in some cases. Although the holistic dental community is diverse in its practices and approaches, common threads include strong opposition to the use of amalgam in materials in dental fillings, nonsurgical approaches to gum diseases and the belief that root canals may endanger systemic health of the patient through the spread of trapped dental bacteria to the body.
12. DENTAL PUBLIC HEALTH:
Dentists who specialize in public dental health are concerned with the positive dental well-being of a community rather than for singular patients. Their efforts focus on dental health education, community oral health programs and the overall prevention of dental diseases on a larger scale.
13. DENTAL HYGIENE:
Dental hygiene or oral hygiene is the process of maintaining proper dental care to avoid oral health problems. It is recommended that your dentist and dental hygienist at least twice a year however the dental care that you provide on your own in-house is an integral part of maintaining good oral health. A good in-house regimen supplemented by regular dentist check-ups and cleanings is the best way to prevent dental emergencies.
14. GENERAL DENTISTRY:
General dentistry is the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of a wide variety of conditions that concern the teeth, mouth and gums. Most doctors in this field are referred to as dentists, even though they may hold more specialized training in other areas of dental health. General dentistry concerns itself with the general maintenance of oral hygiene and the prevention of oral disease. In this capacity the general dentist follows a universal representation as the gatekeeper of oral health care.
The Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry focuses on pediatric/adolescent growth and development, disease causality and prevention, child psychology and behaviour management, and all aspects of the highly-specialized Pediatric restorative techniques and modalities along with treatment of children with special health care needs.
Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches: the maxilla and the mandible. The practice of this specialty includes diagnosis, prevention, interception, and correction of malocclusion and other abnormalities of the developing or mature orofacial structures.
Microdentistry is an advanced method of family dentistry that is practiced by dentists and prosthodontists in Naples. It is a minimally invasive, highly precise technique that dentists require extensive training for before use. Microdentistry procedures are advantageous to your overall dental care and dental hygiene, as the magnification provides your dentist with greater detail, better light, and better vision.
Eco-Friendly Dentistry is a newly evolving practice of dentistry, which encompasses a simultaneous devotion to sustainability, prevention, precaution, and a minimally invasive patient-centric as well as global-centric treatment philosophy.
Eco-Friendly Dentistry, through green design and operations, protects the immediate health of patients and team members, the health of the surrounding community, and the health of the global community and natural resources.
19. ORAL MEDICINE:
Many systemic diseases have signs or symptoms that manifest in the orofacial region. Pathologically, the mouth may be afflicted by many cutaneous and gastrointestinal conditions. There is also the unique situation of hard tissues penetrating the epithelial continuity (hair and nails are intra-epithelial tissues). The biofilm that covers teeth therefore causes unique pathologic entities known as plaque-induced diseases
Minimal intervention dentistry is a modern dental practice designed around the principal aim of preservation of as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. It uses a disease-centric philosophy that directs attention to first control and management of the disease that causes tooth decay—dental caries—and then to relief of the residual symptoms it has left behind—the decayed teeth. The approach uses similar principles for prevention of future caries, and is intended to be a complete management solution for tooth decay.
Dental sleep medicine is an area of dental practice that focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dentists work together with sleep physicians to identify the best treatment for each patient.
22. DENTAL RESEARCH:
The aim of this dental research studies is to promote research in all fields of oral and related sciences, to encourage improvements in methods for the prevention and treatment of oral and dental disease, to improve the oral health of the public through research, and to facilitate cooperation among investigators and the communication of research findings and their implications throughout the world.
23. ORAL CANCER:
Oral cancer also known as mouth cancer, is a type of head and neck cancer and is any cancerous tissue growth located in the oral cavity. It may arise as a primary lesion originating in any of the tissues in the mouth, by metastasis from a distant site of origin, or by extension from a neighboring anatomic structure, such as the nasal cavity. Alternatively, the oral cancers may originate in any of the tissues of the mouth, and may be of varied histologic types: teratoma, adenocarcinoma derived from a major or minor salivary gland, lymphoma from tonsillar or other lymphoid tissue, or melanoma from the pigment-producing cells of the oral mucosa.
