Message

Welcome to the faculty of Dentistry at Al Quds University. Our faculty was established in 2000 to localize the study of dental medicine in Palestine, and since that time around one thousand students have been graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Dental Surgery (BDS). I am pleased to say that a good number of graduates have finished their postgraduate training at renowned centers across the globe.

Our young energetic teaching staff has been continuously working to attain a curriculum that reflects their vision for training tomorrow’s leaders in oral health care. We have recently implemented our new curriculum that is innovative and dynamic.

We also have an outreach program that involves students as well as teaching staff going to various cities and villages that do not have easy access to dental care. In order to overcome the obstacles that the community faces, check points and closures we aim at developing this outreach program by adding a mobile dental clinic that will offer basic dental treatment for those who lack access to basic dental care.

As Dean, it’s my privilege to steward dental school mission. I’m increasingly finding that our success in undergraduate medical and dental education requires the continuous utilization of quality improvement approach to address different problems, as well as, integration of team learning, and state-of-the art innovations in dental education. Our everyday challenge is to weave all of these elements into a distinctive and excellent undergraduate experience. Our final success depends on the involvement of anyone and everyone with an interest and an ability to contribute.

Dentistry is a constantly developing field and we aim at always keeping up with this development as well as maintaining a high level patient management protocol that meets the best international levels in all fields of dentistry.
I’m confident that the Faculty of Dentistry at Al-Quds University will continue to graduate dentists who by virtue of their diverse training, caring attitude and clinical experience will be leaders in the profession of dentistry.

Our vision, at the faculty of dentistry, is to set the standard of excellence in creating the future of dental education, research and practice. The mission of our Dental Faculty is to foster leaders in dental care education and to provide the community with highly qualified and multidisciplinary skillful dentists through continuous development of its curriculum to meet the advancement in medicine and dentistry worldwide.

The Faculty of Dentistry at AQU was established in 2000 being the first dental faculty ever established in Palestine. We provide Bachelor degree in dental surgery (BDS) for our students whose curriculum is distributed over five academic years. Currently, the faculty includes more than 830 dental students. Our BDS program is implemented within the University’s main campus in Abudees in addition to the educational buildings (Al-Abraj) where training within the clinical settings take place (about 1km from campus). Our students pass through preclinical & clinical stages during which they gain all expected knowledge and training to become highly skilled and qualified dentists who can achieve the intended goals in their future careers.

Our graduates have been achieving remarkable high scores in national as well as international examinations and profession’s license accreditation. Many of them have completed higher studies in various worldwide Universities and are now serving the Palestinian community with high standards of care and professional expertise.

The faculty has recently celebrated the inauguration of its Continuing Dental Education Center which will have its own prints on promoting the dental profession locally through the collective work of its highly qualified dental academics in addition to the exceedingly experienced and competent dental colleagues who have already joined in to participate in conducting various professional courses. In addition, Dental School has started the process of specialty accreditation by PMC in different fields of dentistry after meeting all human and technical requirements. High specialization programs in Orthodontics, Prosthodontic s, and Endodontics are expected to be launched in the academic year 2021-2022.
