- Dental basic sciences department:
Department of dental basic sciences includes different medical specialty that the students of college of dentistry learning the basic medical sciences that accompany and go side by side with other dental sciences through the first three years. Basic medical sciences are essential for building proper medical education in order to build knowledges and foundation for practicing dental medical sciences.
Primarily we are concentrating first on basic sciences like physics, basic biochemistry and biology in the first year, then after we take the students through normal human medical sciences like physiology, anatomy and histology, all are including the general and oral parts. Last, we build a general medical knowledges to grow a medically thinking mind to behave like a physician mean by giving the students subjects like: general medicine, general surgery, general pathology, medical pharmacology and medical microbiology.
Our knowledge are always concentrating on the correlation between general/basic medical and dental sciences.

Practical sessions are an important part of education using well-equipped laboratories with the opportunity for student to work with their own hands and the students will have contact experience with patients in teaching hospitals.
Our vision is to provide a high level of basic and general medical sciences to build the foundation for practicing dental medicine properly.

Making the students to be oriented about the basic structures of the body.
Using the laboratory tests and procedures as tools to understand the role of laboratory medicine which is crucial also for the future development of researches.
