Dean’s Message

Professor Thomas Flemmig

World Class Dentistry in Asia’s World City

Thank you for visiting the website of the Faculty of Dentistry at The University of Hong Kong, the only university dental faculty in Asia’s World City of Hong Kong, China.

As an international dental school, we have staff and students coming from both Hong Kong and different parts of the world, and English is adopted as the medium of instruction. We have excellent relationships with the University, the professional community, alumni, the international academic circle, and industry. Our outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate education programmes and international research achievements have enabled us to become one of the top dental schools in the world.

Our undergraduate dental curriculum has adopted a problem-based learning (PBL) approach through which students develop critical thinking and self-directed life-long learning skill. The students also have early exposure to clinical training and provision of comprehensive care to patients. There are state-of-the-art educational and clinical facilities in our Faculty at the Prince Philip Dental Hospital, including simulated patient laboratory and a 3D haptics training unit. World-class quality taught postgraduate and research postgraduate programmes are also offered in nearly all fields and clinical dental specialties to both local and international students.

To engage with the professional and wider community, our Faculty regularly organises a variety of knowledge exchange activities. Both the Faculty and the communities served benefit immensely through these interactive functions.

I hope that you find our website useful for your information needs. If you have any queries or feedback, please e-mail us at dentke@hku.hk.
