This work is organized based on the different components of the teaching-learning process and as it is established by the science that has didactics as its object of study, so it is necessary to promote the development of particular didactics, with a focus on the new demands posed by the twenty-first century to medical universities, but without detaching itself from general didactics.

Keywords : teaching-learning process; didactic; dental medicine; higher medical education.
