As we celebrate the centenary of our institution, it is a time to reflect on our past achievements and look ahead to the future with renewed commitment and ambition. For one hundred years, the FMD has been dedicated to providing excellent education to our students, advancing knowledge through research, and serving the community through promotion of oral health.
In the early years, the FMD focused primarily on teaching the basic principles of dentistry. However, over the past century, the faculty has evolved, developing a comprehensive curriculum that includes clinical and laboratory training, research programs, and community outreach initiatives. Today, we are proud to have a diverse student body, comprised of individuals from many backgrounds and cultures, who are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to become leaders in the field of dentistry.
As we look to the future, our faculty members and researchers are constantly exploring new avenues for innovation and development, ensuring that our students are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in a rapidly evolving field.
We are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest advances in technology and techniques. Our commitment to staying ahead of the curve is not just about keeping pace with the latest trends, but also about ensuring that we are providing the best possible care to our patients.
We will expand our research programs and continue to develop new treatments and technologies to improve oral health and to engage with our community, promoting oral health and wellness, and serving as a trusted source of information and advice.
But we cannot do this alone. We need the support and partnership of our alumni, our colleagues, and our friends. Together, we can make a significant contribution to the advancement of dentistry, and to the improvement of oral health and wellness for all.
As we celebrate this momentous occasion, I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of those who have contributed to the success of the FMD over the past century. We are proud of our heritage, and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Let us continue to work together to make the next century even more successful.
