The Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry

VieSID, , short for the Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry, originated in Austria as an evolution of the teachings of  Prof. Dr. Rudolf Slavicek, the past Dean of the University of Vienna and the director of postgraduate training for dentists at the Danube (Donau) University in Krems, Austria.  VieSID offers postgraduate training for dentists and dental technicians and is organized in cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna and the University Dental Clinic in Vienna. The cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna also includes the support of scientific research on the subjects of occlusion and function in dentistry.

Education in Occlusal Medicine

The VieSID basic curriculum is designed to provide participants with an in depth understanding of structural development and the functional requirements of the masticatory system.  Emphasis is placed on the clinical skills and instrumentation required to achieve optimal diagnostic success in everyday practice.  

The Basic Curriculum is designed for dentists and their dental technicians who are looking for  a program that provides a logical concept for occlusal rehabilitation that can be tailored to the individual patient.  We have designed this extensive curriculum to be the most comprehensive course in occlusion available today.

what we teach

How do we teach?

The theoretical lessons are taught in classroom style. Numerous hands-on exercises are taught in both the clinic and laboratory.   Homework and both written and oral evaluations give teachers and students feedback on the educational experience as each module is completed.  Our small class size allows for a very interactive learning experience with the other students and teachers.   Student case presentations complete the training and provide a comprehensive learning experience.
