Basic Curriculum (VCC 19) - NEW
Basic Curriculum
for Dentists and Dental Technicians

Basic Curriculum

Rapid developments in dental technical materials and the completely different methods of their implementation present a considerable challenge to the adaptation mechanisms of the cranio-mandibular system, making strategic case planning with an interdisciplinary approach especially important. Profound knowledge of the functional, structural and dynamic functions of the masticatory organ is needed, as well as technical knowledge of modern materials and technologies.

The Basic Curriculum is designed in particular for dentists and dental technicians who are looking for a comprehensive and well founded further education.

Theory lessons are in a group of dentists and dental technicians, whereas the hands-on exercises are designed to meet the individual requirements of  both professional groups. The course contents focuses on aspects, functions and dysfunctions of the craniofacial system, based on the theses of Prof. Rudolf Slavicek's Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry (VieSID)

Course Contents

This modular, comprehensive and intensive course offers theoretical and practical lessons, well balanced  throughout the three modules. The concept and the structure of the course permit participants to use immediately the knowledge they gain in their practice.

Course subjects in detail:

Overview of course contents and course objectives

Functional anatomy and physiology of the cranio-mandibular system
