University students in the 8th and 9th periods of dentistry at Centro Universitário UDC are constantly monitored by professors of pediatric dentistry, while Clinica Escola de Odontopedatria provides free treatment to patients aged 0 to 15 years at UDC.

Services are performed every Saturday. According to Professor. Professor in charge of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry UDC. Dr. Gilberto Tiano, a pediatric dentist, has about 40 appointments every Saturday. “Students who have completed the course in 8th and 9th period will be able to participate. Children are treated with all dental procedures including surgery, recovery and others. “Students are always with teachers and patients are constantly evaluated for their performance.”

Dentistry course coordinator Prof. Master Shigeru Kaminagakura explains that the UDC University Center’s Dentistry course has 3 professors in the pediatric dentistry area, the most complex cases are treated and the results are published in the scientific journal, according to him: .

Nadia Rahul is in the 9th period of dentistry and has confirmed this information from the professor through her testimony. The university student talks about how everyday practical classes make a difference for her: “It is a very important experience. Theory is very important, but it adds a lot to what we see in clinical daily life. The structure helps a lot, we have already dealt with cases here that are only seen in specialization. “

Arlette Cassen, after graduating, explained that she had learned various protocols on the subject, which need to be applied to children even before starting dental care: “We see all the children, if they are special, if they get hurt later, so we talk to the parents, to the child, so that they adapt to our care. This is important, for those of us who are graduating and for the patient. This is a completely different service, a protocol completely different from adults, they do not know what is going to happen, so we have to explain every step, many have never gone to the dentist, so even if we are going to put a mirror in their face, we have to explain “.
