Universiti Teknologi Mara Dental Faculty
Universiti Teknologi Mara Dental Faculty, Faculty of Dentistry, Universiti Teknologi MARA has been officially established in 2006. The Faculty grows stronger by the year with vibrant and energetic team of academicians and staff members. The Faculty received its first group of students for Bachelor of Dental Surgery programme in July 2006. Since the inception, the Faculty has gained a national reputation for excellence. In addition to its first professional degree (BDS) programme, the faculty offers postgraduate programmes in research and clinical doctorate. Many more programmes will be introduced in the near future to supply a high demand of oral health professionals in the country.
Faculty of Dentistry is committed towards quality education by having a constant review by the professional bodies and experts in and outside Malaysia. All of the curriculums are based on Outcome-based Education (OBE) to ensure graduates have what it takes for them in the real world. The facilities are equipped to assist students and staff members to give their best for the teaching or learning and clinical training. Teaching and learning also utilize innovative audiovisual equipment and teaching aids in the interest of extraordinary learning experience.
After our establishment in Shah Alam Campus, in 2014 we have extended our facility to a nearby campus, UiTM Puncak Perdana to gain more space for teaching and learning. At the same time, we have an opportunity to serve the campus and another nearby campus, UiTM Puncak Alam. Accumulatively, they have more than 15 thousand students and staff.
Now, we moved to our brand new building which will house all of the facilities under one roof. This building is located in Sungai Buloh Campus nearby Faculty of Medicine. Its state of the art facilities are expected to deliver high quality of education and skill training with all the highly motivated staff and academicians.

I assumed the deanship of the Faculty of Dentistry on March 24, 2006. I am honored to serve as the founding dean of this faculty and together with a young, energetic and committed team; we aspire to bring this faculty to a high level of excellence, glory and distinction.
Despite being relatively new, we are already offering postgraduate programs both at the Masters and PhD level. Our undergraduate dental program is running very smoothly and the students are thoroughly enjoying their learning experience in our new facilities alongside their medical colleagues. We are equipping our teaching clinics and research laboratories with state of the art equipments to cater the needs of both our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
We are indeed very grateful to other faculties in the science and technology cluster for their generosity in sharing their facilities to enable us to propagate research activities in dental faculty.
