40 YEARS of benefiting mankind
The Faculty of Dentistry, Prince pf Songkla University (PSU) was established on 10 November 1983 in response to the government’s expansion policy of dentists to rural communities in the South. Presently, the Faculty of Dentistry, PSU produces undergraduates, graduates and dental certificate personnel by teaching both theory and practice focusing on the actual students so that the students are able to learn by themselves from the latest education media under the supervision of qualified and knowledgable lecturers in the different subjects and research.
Moreover, the Faculty is also a centre for providing dental service to the South where the dental hospital is both a centre of dental research and technology development as well as a place of practice for students. The Faculty of Dentistry has set up a remote community mobile dental clinic under the University’s Royal Patronage Unit and the mobile dental clinic unit of the dental hospital to go out and serve the underprivileged in distant areas where it is difficult to access dentists etc.
At present, the Faculty of Dentistry has progressed significantly from the original intention to produce dentists in response to the need in Southern communities, to provide for the people of the entire country including expanding its academic roles to international standards .
