The Faculty of Dentistry of Rīga Stradiņš University is the best choice if you want to study dentistry in Europe - our dentistry students start practicing on state of the art pre-clinical dental equipment already in their 1st year. Our dental equipments are fitted with phantom heads, which simulate a real dental care unit and allow learning the correct working ergonomics from day one. Developed in collaboration with the world’s leading universities, this is one of the most comprehensive solutions for modern pre-clinical dental education.
