Background The Department is located in the building of the former Clinic of Stomatology, which was founded by József Árkövy in 1909. Over the past 50 years, this institution has become part of what is today called the Faculty of Dentistry of Semmelweis University, and most of the Faculty’s departments have subsequently been relocated elsewhere.
Profile The main activity of the Department is teaching dental and medical students and carrying out their practical training through the Department’s dental patients. Dentoalveolar surgery, oral implantology and maxillofacial surgery as well as traumatology are some of the Department’s more specialised activities.
