Message from the Dean

Datuk Dr Fawzia Binti Dato’ Abdullah
(Dean, Faculty of Dentistry)

Good oral hygiene is important for maintaining not only the health of one’s mouth and teeth but one’s overall health, and the advantage of proper preventative dental care should not be underestimated. Poor oral health has been linked to heart and lung disease, diabetes, stroke, extremely high-birth weight, and premature births, and many dental practioners will argue that oral health is a strong indicator of overall well-being.

The SEGi University Faculty of Dentistry is committed to producing the best graduates who are skilled and knowledgeable while also maintaining excellent standards of teaching and delivering highly professional clinical services.

The Faculty boasts its own dental clinic with practicing in-house dentists. Here, students are given hands-on practical sessions, which provide them with an insight into what working with both dentists and patients alike. The dental clinic comes complete with a reception, a waiting area and a dental records room, and is tailored to meet industry standards, undergoing regular spot checks by various health agencies. In addition, the dental clinic offers services and treatment to students, lecturers and other staff, as well as to the public.
