Department of Periodontics

Department of Pre-doctoral Student Clinic

The pre-doctoral student clinic serves as an educational environment within the teaching hospital of Yonsei University College of Dentistry, where all aspects of clinical teaching by faculty from both college and hospital are focused to train the future dentists to be the leaders of our nation’s oral health care. Established in 1986 as the first student clinic in Korea, the clinic was renovated in 1995 when the new dental hospital building was constructed. The student clinic is equipped with 47 high-tech dental chair units, which make the largest single clinic in our dental hospital. The fourth year pre-doctoral dental students are available for patients’ dental care needs. The students receive clinical instructions and guidance from about 70 clinical supervisors and professors.

 

 

Major Clinical Results

Strength of Pre-doctoral Student Clinic (qualified competency, sufficient clinical personnel, convenience and objectivity)

        Our students are proficient in the latest basic dental treatment skills thanks to high quality predoctoral dental 
        program and several competency tests certifying their clinical skills. Waiting time for walk-in appointment is 
        minimal since students are always available, and ready to deliver treatment. Due to the educational purposes of 
        the student clinic, dental services are provided at reasonable costs. The most important aspect of the clinic is to 
        offer objective and thorough treatments under the guidance of clinical supervisors, which accounts for the fact 
        that many patients return to the clinic after their experiences.


Features of Pre-doctoral Student Clinic (respectful encounter, standardized treatment, immediate referral service to specialized departments)

        Emphasis is placed on respectful encounters between patients, student dentists and clinical supervisors. The 
        clinic provides evidence-based standardized dental care  to patients. Dental care is focused on basic and 
        standard treatments. Treatments requiring specialized skills are not provided, which are listed below. In 
        those circumstances, patients are immediately referred to specialized departments. When faculty practice is 
        required, patients will be promptly guided and receive superior standards of care in each specialty area.
