WELCOME TO THE FACULTY OF DENTISTRYThe Faculty of Dentistry is a world-class oral health centre committed to the promotion of oral health through excellence of its teaching and learning, service rendering, community engagement and research.
The Faculty of Dentistry offers high-quality professional education and service based clinical training at undergraduate and post graduate levels, laying the foundation for life-long professional development.
The Academic Oral Health Centres at Tygerberg and at Mitchell’s Plain are at the core of our clinical platform, but clinical care and training activities also take place at the Red Cross and Grootte Schuur Hospitals, Guguletu and Mitchell’s Plain Dental Clinics, the Phelophepha Health Trains and many other locations served by our mobile dental clinic.
We provide a unique and diverse range of community and hospital settings in which students learn and refine their clinical skills, while delivering much needed oral health care to surrounding communities.
This clinical platform is jointly managed by the Dental Faculty of the University of the Western Cape (UWC), and the Provincial Government of the Western Cape (PGWC) Department of Health.
