Dean's Welcome Address

Welcome to the web page of the Faculty of Dentistry, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. It offers a window into the programs and people of this remarkable Faculty.

The Obafemi Awolowo University Dental School is a place for people who love excellence: people who want to think about how public dental health research and services interact with the wider public health policy, business, information and biomedical technologies. It is also a place where the practice of dentistry is driven by the need to address oral health care as part of the individual’s total health care.
Established in 1975, The Obafemi Awolowo University Dental School is the third oldest continuously operating dental school in the nation. The school beautifully blends its rich tradition with the rapidly evolving technological developments. Its uses a problem-solving approach to teach its clinical courses.
