Dear Students and Stakeholders:

The Faculty of Dental Sciences at the University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED) located at Ondo City, in Nigeria is one of the seven divisions created in April 2015 when the University was established. The Faculty presently comprises of five departments: Department of Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery, Department of Oral/ Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology and Oral Medicine, Department of Preventive and Community Dentistry, Department of Child Dental Health and Department of Restorative Dentistry.

 

The Philosophy of the UNIMED Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree program is to train dental surgeons (dentists) who are educationally and professionally equipped with sufficient knowledge, and skills to interact with patients, evaluate them, arrive at diagnoses and institute appropriate dental treatment at primary and secondary care levels. Our primary goal is to produce discerning dentists who are competent and can perform their defined roles within the health care system and follow the tenets and ethics of their profession.

 

The Mission of the Faculty of Dental Sciences is to attract a diverse student body and train them to excel in the provision of oral health education at the highest quality of clinical services to meet the need of the community, nation and the world at large.  Strategically positioned and committed to imparting and advancing oral health knowledge as well as oral health care delivery in our immediate community.

 

The Faculty of Dental Sciences’ Vision is to be a national and international center of excellence in dental education, service, and research.

 

Our Faculty holds, in high regard, all the core values of the University: Transparency, Efficiency, Accountability, Professionalism, Flexibility and Collaboration and they work hard every day to achieve them. I warmly welcome our students and stakeholders to the Faculty of Dental Sciences.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. A. O. Loto, BDS, FWACS
