Faculty of Stomatology in Pančevo is the first private Faculty in the field of medical sciences in Serbia. It has been in existence and has worked successfully since 2002. With its formation, it joined a large number of private faculties of stomatology in Europe as well as worldwide. In order to successfully realize all of the goals that have been set, we have put together the collective experience of our professors, the experience of European stomatological faculties, the experience of state owned and private stomatological practices and the instructions of the Bologna declaration.
