The school

Foramen Dental Education is a modern dental training centre located at Oporto's downtown area.


We are focused on long term educational projects such as clinical residencies, working with very small students groups through large periods of time.


We also routinely invite some of the best speakers for hands on courses, or over the shoulder experiences.

Delivering Quality


Porto is exceptional in more ways than one.

Elected Best European Destination in 2022 by the european citizens, Porto, the "Cidade Invicta" (unvanquished city) is history, is architecture, culture, gastronomy, trade, encounters and discoveries Porto has all the charm of towns which happily cohabit with their river. You can stroll along the River Douro (river of gold) in the Ribeira, fly over it by helicopter or discover Porto ‘s architecture, its amazing landscapes and magnificent bridges by taking a cruise on this majestic river. Porto is also a sea city and in the briefest of time a tram will bring you to Foz do Douro’s gentle beaches face to face with the Atlantic.

Porto knows how to make you feel welcome; very likely it will conquer your heart and leave a long-lasting impression.

You will find it hard to leave.

Dr. Rui Coelho performing

a nerve lateralization

So, yeah, we sometimes prefer to go around things. This little gem illustrates the inferior alveolar nerve lateralization procedure. A demanding surgery that Rui Coelho makes it look easy.

Selected Works

We take pride in our images. Here you can find some of the best audiovisual work that ever came out of Foramen.

You steal this, we hunt you down. Seriously. :)

Nelson Garrido

"The surgery residency helped me to enter the labor market, allowing me to fill many educational gaps and overcome fears that many recent graduates have . It helped me to grow as a clinician, and to find my space, starting my route in the current dental scenario, which as we all know is evolving at a dizzying speed."
