BDS Programme



ODC provides an undergraduate programme of high standards, consisting of a five year academic BDS programme, preceded by a predental foundation year 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 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.
