The role of the Faculty of Dentistry revolves around four major areas which include education (dental), patient care (oral health care), research and service.
The basic concept of all programmes offered at USIM is based on its philosophy of integration between revealed and acquired knowledge. The course is designed to give the scientific background, the practical skills and desirable attitude needed for safe and independent practice of dentistry.
