Khyber College of Dentistry, Peshawar

In order to provide dental health facilities to the people of this region, it was considered necessary to set up a teaching dental department at Khyber Medical College, Peshawar. The idea to start a dental department came from late Dr. Hassan Raza Shah, the then Principal of de, Montmorency College of Dentistry, Lahore. It was gladly accepted; appreciated and very much encouraged by General Mohammad Akram, the then Principal of Khyber Medical College and Mr. Mohammad Ali, the then Vice Chancellor of the University of Peshawar. The Department of Dentistry was formally declared open by the then Minister for Health Begum Mahmuda Salim on 12th October 1964.

The first batch graduated in 1968 while Pakistan Medical and Dental Council accorded permanent recognition to BDS degree in its session held in Dacca (Bangladesh), the Capital of the then East Pakistan in November, 1968. From the modest start, it has grown to become a fully developed teaching institute with its modern Oral and Dental Hospital and Surgeries, Operation theatres and Wards in its new building complex, which was opened on 9th September 1978. The annual intake of students has gone up gradually from 14 in 1964 to 50. So far more than 600 dental graduates have qualified from this institute. Nearly 300 patients receive daily dental treatment of various natures. This includes highly specialized treatment modalities

Three new blocks housing the Departments of Orthodontia, Prosthetic and Conservation were added to the present set-up in 1992. After the completion of Basic Science Block, it can be said without any hesitation that Khyber college of Dentistry Peshawar is the largest teaching dental Institute in Pakistan. On 11th January 1990, the Department of Dentistry was upgraded to the status of the College by the then Chief Minister, Mr. Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao who made this announcement while presiding over the inaugural function of the Silver Jubilee of the Department of Dentistry.
