Sapporo Dental College & Hospital
The establishment of Sapporo Dental College for uplifting the quality of dental education and service in true sense was the brainchild of Prof. Dr. Mohiuddin Ahmed. Sapporo Dental College and Hospital started its journey in the year 2000.
The main goal for establishing this institution was to promote the level of dental education and health care by reducing the consistent shortage of well-trained oral health manpower in the country with a view to developing oral health care facilities in Bangladesh in line with global standards of scientific and technological development and proficiency achieved in this field. In
order to achieve that goal a non-profitable charitable organization was formed named “The Foundation For Health Education, Service and Research” and the Sapporo Dental College and
Hospital (SDCH) was the first project under this organization.
Since its inception, Sapporo Dental College is making continuous endeavour to make it a centre
of excellence for dental education and clinical training for undergraduate dental students.
SDC is committed to producing competent world-class graduates with excellent communication, interpersonal and leadership skills.
SDC is committed to producing competent world-class graduates with excellent communication, interpersonal and leadership skills. At Sapporo Dental College and Hospital, students learn to think critically, act globally and work collaboratively to achieve their full potential. SDCH had also plans for further expansion of postgraduate programs and simultaneously introduction of advanced clinical training. The fact, which was once a dream, now becomes the reality by starting FCPS training as the first private dental institution of the country with recognition from BCPS.
The institution is the pioneer of community based dental research aimed for improvement of oral health status of the rural people in Bangladesh, and continuously setting up programme to serve the underprivileged. The Institute has successfully accomplished many community dental service projects in the grass root level. Besides, nationwide dental and medical camps are continuously performed to extend service to the remote areas of the country where dental and medical services are scarce and almost non-existent.
