          To prepare our graduates for the 21st century skill, we use English as the main language throughout our “anytime, anywhere”, active learning curriculum. The D.D.S. program’s hands-on opportunities begin with immersion in intensive preclinical broad-based sciences and engagement in practical research knowledge through smart classroom technology. Then, for real-life clinical experience, students will be appointed to a mentorship team (team-based learning), led by an expert in the field faculty mentor who will coach students in every aspect of managing clinical practice. Our approach to clinical care is comprehensive and holistic, emphasizing oral health care in the context of the patient’s overall dental and general health effortlessly combined with state-of-the-art digital dentistry innovations. Our Thai and international faculty include highly qualified professors who have extensive teaching and research experience with commitment to excellence. Together with our mentorship model in the non-competitive learning environment, this approach collectively results in high-quality, faculty-assisted student attention. With public service in mind, we develop the outreach and service learning with oral health promotion and clinical care experiences in varied extramural settings, including international sites and many throughout Thailand. We also extend our efforts to promote the oral health well-being in the fast-growing elderly population which called for special management.

          A major stand out in our dental program at WUICD is our strong research integration. Students can find stimulating research opportunities, not only in oral health issues but also in studies ranging from stem cell to cancer biology. Proactive intensive research opportunities in both the basic and clinical sciences through the professional electives during the 5th and final year.

       Above all, our D.D.S. program emphasizes engaged, active and happy learning attitude. Students will be continually challenged to discover and inquire. And student will acquire lifetime skills in critical thinking, self-evaluation, and reflection on ethical values.
