Our aim as Istinye University Faculty of Dentistry, which started its educational activities in the 2021-2022 academic year; To create a student-centered dentistry faculty that combines scientific-based, evidence-based and qualified dentistry education with research culture and technology, and where there is a strong communication between the academician and the student. Our other goals are to train leading dentists who can think critically and creatively, internalize a scientific perspective, respect humanity and ethical rules, and add value to their profession, and to carry out scientific research that contributes to the progress of humanity and produces universal knowledge.

Dear students;
The Department of Clinical Sciences of our faculty, excluding the English preparatory class, is a five-year program and educates physicians on the effective protection of oral cavity and dental health, treatment of tooth and gum diseases, surgical interventions in the tooth/jaw area and prosthesis in the mouth. In the first three years of the program, in addition to basic medicine courses, pre-clinical theoretical and practical courses of dentistry are given, and in the last two years, the theoretical courses and clinical applications of clinical dentistry are performed and graduates are completed.


You will benefit from clinics and laboratories equipped with the technological tools and equipment required by modern medicine and dentistry at our faculty. In the preclinical period, you will receive your basic medicine and dentistry training on models, simulations and robotic patients before meeting real patients in our most up-to-date basic medical laboratories and dentistry professional skills (Phantom) laboratory located on the Topkapı campus of our University. Your clinical training will take place on real patients, under the guidance of experienced training staff, in the clinics of Istinye University Gaziosmanpaşa Medical Park Hospital, which are highly developed in terms of their physical facilities.


I would like to express our satisfaction that you have chosen Istinye University Faculty of Dentistry when stepping into the profession of Dentistry. Be sure that we will endeavor to do our best for you, together with our academic and administrative staff, in your education and training adventure that will last for five years. I wish you success in this practice-oriented program, which will be intense but enjoyable at the same time, and you will accumulate good memories.
