iconAbout Dental schools?

Hello

I would like to know the quality of education at Altamash school of dental medicine, KMDC & Baqai?

What are the pros & cons?

Which is the best?

Thanks

I had visited Baqai Dental few years ago when Prof.Ijaz Aqeel was the principal of the Dental section and I had found that their teachings were of qood standard. A number of Dental graduates from Baqai have migrated to Canada and several of them have visited my dental offices for guidance. I have found them intelligent and having a good knowledge of theoretical part of clinical subjects. However, they lack proper clinical approaches.
I have not visited Altamash and KMDC. I am sure they must be trying to produce ethical dentists. It’s my request to all dental institutions in Pakistan that their undergraduate students should pay more attention on hands-on and clinical aspects of dentistry and that their standards should not be less than North American dentists.
Thanks
Dr.Munir

Dr Munir: Thanks for the reply. There is a difference when it comes to clinical dentistry. A lot of work needs to be done to improve infection control aspects too.

Regards,

Yes, you are very right. Infection control in dental offices in Pakistan needs to be improved a lot. I would like to request my dentist friends to save themselves from AIDS,HEP and several other infections by using gloves and masks and instruct their assistants to sterlize the instruments properly.

I am surprised that no one else has any comments.

sir its a very important topic to be discussed openly and its a very seriuos problem in pakistan with both dental surgeons and patients,one day i visited a welknown gastroentalogist in lahore for my stomach check up he generaly asked me that mostly dentists visit my clinic for hepatic problems why dont they practice cross infection free.i think very fewer dentists care this.on the other hand every third person is suffering from hcv hbs etc mainly transmitted by using contaminated instruments especially by quaks living in lunatic asylum.now its the time to educate the people n especially to improve the quality of education in dental colleges and hospitals in both theoritcal n clinical aspects.we all concerned with medical and dental proffessions have to play a key role in providing infection free treatment to the people of our homeland.love pakistan
