» Welcome from the Dean

      Our Dental Faculty is the only national Dental School located in Northeastern Thailand and has provids prominent leadership in dental education, innovation, research and patient care within the region. Since its founding in 1979 with only 30 undergraduate students and 9 lecturers, today our Faculty has expanded significantly with almost 400 undergraduate students, over 60 postgraduate students, nearly 100 faculties and 200 support staff. Our Dental Hospital offers comprehensive and first-rate oral health care to more than 80,000 patients a year including adults, children and disadvantaged patients.




     In recent years, the Faculty has built on its excellence in clinical training, research and community services. In addition, our strategic location at the heart of Northeastern Thailand and nearby Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) countries enables us for the community dental collaborations and to fulfill our mission statement “To be the leading dental education hub, dental research center of excellence and dental care center of GMS and ASEAN”. As we enter the 31st year, we will continue to build upon our strengths to produce leaders in the fields of oral and systemic health and to provide quality dental services to a wide range of people throughout the region.

     The Faculty of Dentistry offers a friendly environment for dental services, undergraduate and postgraduate training, and research. I hope you will join our stimulating academic community and I look forward to welcoming you.
