Abstract: The training of dental surgeons at the Royal University of Malta is closely based on the British system and with minor modifications has proved suitable to local requirements. The first course started in 1933 under the aegis of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery. In 1951 the Faculty of Dental Surgery was established and the duration of the course increased from two to four years, leading to a Bachelor's degree in Dental Surgery. This professional course attempts to give an academic and clinical training hopefully including the intangible characteristics of a university education. The format of the course has evolved over the years without any drastic modifications. Al though the number of dental surgeons is not enough, the type of dental surgeon has proved adequate to the nation's need.
