By very raw definition, dentistry is the branch of medicine that is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body. Doctors who practice dentistry are known as dentists. The dentist’s supporting team aids in providing oral health services, which includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists.

One of the dentistry-related histories: The Indus Valley Civilization has yielded evidence of dentistry being practiced as far back as 7000 BC. This earliest form of dentistry involved curing tooth related disorders with bow drills operated, perhaps, by skilled bead craftsmen. The reconstruction of this ancient form of dentistry showed that the methods used were reliable and effective. reference

No doubt to practice dentistry is not an easy task, but when one’s determination and effort take part in the path of realizing,  as easy as one plus one it will be. Nursing program / course is available in many of Malaysia’s universities & university colleges (u&uc), just depends on one’s intention upon selecting of preferred learning institution.

Mahsa University College

Mahsa was established in earnest in the year 2005 in Pusat Bandar Damansara, Kuala Lumpur with the belief that higher education in the field of healthcare is a vital cog in the development of the nation, with vision involved creating a centre of excellence in Medical, Nursing and Allied Health Sciences Education in Malaysia, thereby developing qualified and compassionate healthcare professionals to serve the needs of nation, which it is in line with the Prime Minister’s vision that Malaysia should become a centre for academic excellence. In order to generate a pool of skilled healthcare professionals, the University College gathers the brightest minds in the country and abroad to help nurture the minds of its students. Furthermore, in the field of healthcare, theoretical knowledge though important is nonetheless secondary to clinical exposure and hence, students are always exposed to practical experience at the earliest stage during their tenure. extracted from – “the university college”
