General Dental Practice General Dental Practice

General Dental Practitioners evaluate, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of conditions, which affect both hard and soft tissues in the oral cavity. By the general nature of their training , they are equipped to carry out the majority of dental treatments. They are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages and it is not uncommon for a family to be cared for by the same practitioner. When patients require complex treatment, involving different specialties, General Dental Practitioners assume overall responsibility for coordinating these services to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

The philosophy underpinning the teaching of General Dental Practice in this faculty is known as “ Comprehensive Dental Care”. Students are encouraged to deliver patient-centered care that is based on individual “needs and wants”. The three pillars of this approach is accurate diagnosis, prioritized care and effective prevention. The aim is to coach patients toward achieving an optimum state of health and maintaining good function and appearance.

Students are also engaged in community rotations to familiarize them with the prevailing public oral and general health care system, community preventive programs and oral health promotion in Kuwait.
