“You should hold the institution that is educating you in high esteem

and be proud of it. So don’t just memorize what you study to earn a living,

but take to heart what you were taught and use it as a basis for your life.”


Prince Mahidol

Mahidol University originates from Thailand’s first hospital, Siriraj Hospital, founded in 1888, and the hospital’s medical school is the oldest institution of higher learning in Thailand, granting its first medical degree in 1893. Later becoming the University of Medical Sciences in 1942, the University was renamed with great honor in 1969 by H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej after his own father. H.R.H. Prince Mahidol of Songkla, who is widely regarded as the “Father of Modern Medicine and Public Health in Thailand”.


Since then, Mahidol University has diversified from its original strengths in medicine and science, so it now also excels in social sciences, arts and humanities. With its many prestigious honors and achievements, Mahidol University has become an internationally acclaimed institution, recognized for its academic excellence.


The Faculty currently operates a dental hospital at Phayathai Campus, and the Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Dental Hospital, as part of the Golden Jubilee Medical Centre near the Salaya Campus. Both centers combined offer the most comprehensive dental care in the country.


The Faculty is proactive in developing its research capability and maintaining its policy in supporting both basic research in dental science and clinical research, to improve the over-all dental health of the country.
