Dean’s Statement

Welcome to the Faculty of Dentistry, College of Medicine, University of Nigeria! We are the first and the only Faculty of its kind, South-East of Nigeria dedicated to leading in Oral and Dental Health Care in the zone.

As the Dean, I am humbled for the rare opportunity to steer the ship of leadership of this budding Faculty and to build on the existing framework of my predecessors.

Though chequered, we give thanks as we consider our history a legacy. Challenges are many over the years but we see them as stepping stones to greatness.

As we strive to nurture the Faculty until it reaches the desired full stature that would be the pride of the people, we owe many thanks to both the Administration and all stake holders.

Our strength as a Faculty is derived, not in numbers, but from the passionate engagement of our staff and students.

With hard work, determination and commitment we aspire to be a top ranked Faculty of Dentistry both nationally and globally.

As an emerging young faculty, our vision is to be one of the top-tier dental faculties. While our mission is student focused-learning that promotes patient-centered care through research, teaching and learning in a friendly environment.

Thank you.

Long Live Faculty of Dentistry!

Long Live College of Medicine!

Long Live University of Nigeria!
