Importance & Scope:

                Dentistry is the branch of science devoted for maintenance and treatment of teeth, gums, and other soft and hard tissues of oral cavity and adjacent structures. Dental market is bifurcated into two segments: dental consumables and dental equipment’s. Dental consumables represent the larger segment of the dental care industry. The dental consumables segment includes crowns/bridges, implants, orthodontics, impressive materials, composites, endodontic, adhesives, and cements, while the dental equipment segment is composed of large equipment, such as autoclaves, sterilizers, chairs, communication systems, compressors, cuspidors, and digital imaging systems.

Dentistry is one of the most rewarding professions to pursue. Through education, diagnosis and treatment, dentists provide the public with an essential health service. Research is continuing to show that the link between oral health and general health is strong.

Today's dentists do more than drill and fill patients' teeth; they perform a wide variety of procedures and functions. Though some dentists specialize or develop expertise in particular areas, the number and range of services that dentists provide has steadily grown.

Why Dubai?

      There are eight major dentistry universities, more than 200 oral health companies and approx. 5000 dentists are in UAE. The supply of dentists per capita is higher in Dubai than in most developed countries. The Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HADD), the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) are the key player who governs the public healthcare services including dental health. Under the leadership of HRH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates, and Ruler of Dubai, this city is a very exciting place with tremendous opportunities for excellent and ambitious dental professionals.

Recent Research in Dentistry


As a professor of surgery and research, P-I Brånemark is considered the father of modern dental Implantology. In 1989 Professor Brånemark founded the first The Brånemark Osseointegration Center (BOC) in Gothenburg, Sweden (www.branemark.com). BOC’s principal task was to offer management for patients with severe oral, maxillo-facial and orthopedic disablements. There are only 10 such clinics in the world and in the June of 2013 due to its excellence in dental implant treatment the Dubai BOC, was founded by Dr Cotsas and Dr. Petros. This demonstrates a milestone of progress for the health system in Dubai being able to host a BOC in the Middle East.

As UAE moves to emerging country status, greater focus will be placed on educational excellence and best practices in every sector of human endeavor including dental education and research. UAE strives to remain ahead-of-the-curve and should be a beacon of hope and inspiration for those seeking excellence in dentistry and best practices.


Future of Dentistry

Advances in dental research, including genetic engineering, the discovery of links between oral and systemic diseases, the development of salivary diagnostics and the continued development of new materials and techniques, make dentistry an exciting, challenging and rewarding profession. 

Dentists are instrumental in the early detection of oral cancer and systemic conditions that manifest in the mouth. They also can serve as first responders in the event of a large-scale health emergency. 

Interest in high quality dental education and research continues to increase in the region, and UAE remains flexible and agile in response to the changing dental market.
