The basic and diagnostic dental sciences are fundamental pillars of dental education. Therefore, the College of Dentistry at Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University has endeavored to build its academic curriculum in a manner that guarantees the graduation of dentists who are competent in patients' assessment and management based on a solid scientific basis through a set of courses that are designed to ensure integration between different diagnostic oral sciences disciplines.
The department also provides courses in oral and maxillofacial surgery, including clinical training. The department seeks to attract distinguished faculty members from various international schools in dentistry, and we aim at applying the latest teaching methods and use modern technologies to keep pace with the rapidly changing global changes.
We are keen on working in the department to create an environment conducive to members for creativity and support their research activity to achieve the mission of the college and university.
