Another area of activities in which the pediatrics school is primarlity involved in is the dental public health; Which is mainly the early evalutaion of dental health of the younger traget groups in kindergarten, and the education of the oral and dental health care to them and their guardian.    As for the Orthodontics school, students learn the relation of the teeth to jaws and the skeletal bones and their developmental relations and proportions.

In this department the learners are given the chance to start on models in a preclinical setting and then they move on to clinical treatmens.
