On June 7, 1968, His Majesty the King enacted the royal legislative command establishing the “Faculty of Dentistry Phayathai” as part of the University of Medical Sciences to fulfill HM the King’s desire to increase the number of Thai dentists to meet the country’s demand. This new Faculty in the Clinical Research Building at 6 Yothi Street extended the educational services beyond the first Faculty of Dentistry located on Henri Dunant Street. On March 2, 1969, HM the King graciously renamed the University of Medical Sciences as “Mahidol University” in honor of the King’s father, HRH Prince Songkla Nagarinda, acknowledging his great achievement of introducing modern medicine to the Thai nation.
In 1974, the name Faculty of Dentistry Phayathai, was shortened to Faculty of Dentistry. Soon after, it has been officially called Mahidol University Faculty of Dentistry. Since its founding, Professor Emeritus Isara Yuktanandhe was the first dean and Associate Professor Dr. Sirichai Kiattavorncharoen is the current dean.
