The first university medical-dental center in our country was opened at the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the Medical University in Varna in the beginning of October 2014.
The construction of the center is under the Competitiveness project, amounting to BGN 4 million, which Varna Medical University won last year. Half of the funds are invested in building the only center of its kind in the country.
Based on the 5th floor of the Faculty of Dentistry, the Medical-Dental Center includes several sectors:
- Day surgery clinic with 2 operating rooms, a treatment room and a 9-bed for postoperative patient monitoring within 24 hours;
- Highly specialized sector with 6 cabinets;
- General dentistry sector;
- Image imaging section with conical-ray tomography;
- Emergency room.
The first and only one currently in the country, the University Dental Center of the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the Medical University in Varna has equipment and apparatus without analogue.
The largest dental center in the country as a base, equipment and personnel, at the University Medical-Dental Center work only university lecturers who, under the ideal conditions, will combine clinical, scientific and teaching work. The medical-dental center will be of benefit to the students, who are trained at the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the Medical University-Varna. They will have the opportunity to watch live operations. The recorded materials from the operating and microscopes will be used for training purposes uploaded to the university server and to the Blackboard e-learning system.
