The School of Dentistry at the University of Pretoria is widely recognised—both nationally and internationally for the quality of its training, research and patient care, as well as for its involvement in community-based projects. Our graduates make decisive contributions to the practice of dentistry, health management, statutory councils and academic training.
In order to keep pace with the requirements of modern tertiary education, the School of Dentistry follows a curriculum that is problem-based, student-oriented and directed at the community, with vertical and horizontal integration of subjects.
The degree in dentistry requires five years of full-time study, followed by one year of compulsory community service. Students get first-hand exposure to clinical dentistry from the second semester of the first year of study.

Once your online application has been processed, you will receive a student number(EMPLID).

If you choose to make use of representatives, agents or agencies, you do so at your own risk.
