“This University of Malaya dental school delivering a dental degree course of the highest standard to match the best in the world”

Dame Margaret Seward, President, The General Dental Council of Great Britain




The Faculty of Dentistry University of Malaya was the first institution of higher learning in Malaysia to offer a degree course to train local candidates to become skilled professional dentists. The first batch of student intake was in 1972.

This is currently a five-year programme where the first two years is dedicated to pre-clinical dental science and basic medical science teaching with exposure to clinical dentistry as early as in the first year. Basic Medical Science teaching is conducted in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine, University Malaya. In the subsequent three clinical years, candidates will have the opportunity to practice their clinical skills in dentistry as well as related medical practice.

At the end of the programme, the Faculty of Dentistry is expected to produce a general dentist practice who is knowledgeable and highly competent in the clinical and technical aspects, understanding social responsibility and can work effectively to contribute to the country`s health service delivery system, and adheres to the principles of professional ethics and conduct of high value.
