ODC provides a undergraduate programme of studies leading to the Bachelor of Dental Surgery Degree of high standards. This programme of studies consists of a five year BDS Programme, preceded by a predental general foundation Programme that follows contemporary approaches in international dental education in order to graduate and qualify competent dental surgeons who are able to commence independent practice as safe beginners on par with their international counterparts.
The ODC philosophy for its BDS programme is centred on the belief in having a stimulating, competency based student learning environment which is also adapted, where required, to suit the needs of the Sultanate of Oman.
The BDS curriculum at ODC is designed to meet both the European and British academic and professional standards as specified by the Academic Affiliate, in keeping with the UK General Dental Council and the Association for Dental Education in Europe. This approach and structure to the BDS programme has been verified and endorsed by the College’s high level International Advisory Panel and Academic Affiliate.
