Airlangga University Dental Education started 51 years ago on November 10th 1954. Since then many changes have been made for a better educational system. The vision of Airlangga University Faculty of Dentistry is to be an independent and accountable institution and to reach the international education standard in dentistry science and technology. Its mission is to educate and teach dentistry with basic medical and dentistry sciences in order to increase the level of community health services in general and the stomatognatic function in particular. The future aims are to do diagnostic preventative research with a predictive medicine approach, and to provide better community health services. The faculty of dentistry has four dental education degrees, which are: Doctor Dental Surgeon (DDS), dental laboratory technician, Master of Science (MS), and dental specialist (e.g. pediatric dentist, oral surgeon etc). Dental education for the DDS degree takes 5 years (10 semesters) with a total of 177 semester credit points. Now the curriculum of dental education is changing step by step to a competence based curriculum. Education and research collaboration with other faculties of dentistry is being conducted including with Hiroshima University.
