Patient Information

In the School of Dentistry of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) there are clinics which provide general and specialized dental care, from Monday to Friday 8:30 am -12:30 pm and 1:00-5:00 pm, except during the University holiday periods. Specifically, the undergraduate and postgraduate clinics of the School provide oral health services to patients, exclusively within the context of the undergraduate and postgraduate students' education. The cost of services for the patient is pre-determined per dental intervention and approved by the NKUA.

Dental treatments are carried out by the undergraduate and postgraduate students under the close and direct supervision, guidance and, if deemed necessary, intervention of the teaching staff, which comprises dentists with a high level of education and specialization. Especially in the postgraduate clinics, care is provided by graduate dentists specializing in a specific field of dentistry. In certain clinics, dental operations are performed exclusively by the instructors and not by students, which do however follow the clinical procedure as part of their learning duties.
Clinics of the School treat patients who come on their own initiative as well as others who are referred by private dentists, hospitals and any other health care center. The cases range from simple to highly complex, from a diagnostic and therapeutic standpoint.

After the initial clinical and radiographic (X-ray) examination, the dental records are transferred to the School's patient database. The selection of patients to be called for treatment is then made according to the educational needs of the students. This means that not all of patients who are examined in the Diagnostic Clinic will be able to be treated. Special efforts are being made to treat as many patients as possible.

We wish to inform you that the 2019 dental appointments for educational purposes have been exhausted. At the start of the next academic semester, possible cancellations will result in a limited number of available appointments.
Information on the availability of these appointments can be requested again in October at www.dent.uoa.gr and at the patient examination phone number: 210-746-1168.

Each treatment in the clinics of the School of Dentistry has a certain cost (health expenditure), which is covered by the patient. This cost is considerably low since it only covers the cost of the materials and consumables used.
