It began as the dental clinics of the medical college and eventually evolved into the institution as it is today, a unique combination of teaching, clinical service, research, and preventive oral care. It encompasses not only the School itself but also a renowned hospital and research institute.
Currently, the Hospital of Stomatology is composed of 15 clinical departments, 8 technical laboratories, and 5 subsidiary clinical-service departments. There are about 2,641 full-time employees, more than 632 dental units for daily clinical service, and 157 ward beds.
