List of universities offering Dentistry/Dental Surgery in Nigeria 2022

One of the emerging courses in Nigeria is Dentistry and Dental Surgery. This page will guide you on the universities to study Dentistry in Nigeria.

Dentistry is a branch of medicine concerned with the oral cavity (the whole mouth area). And studying dentistry is just like studying Medicine.

A graduate of dentistry is known as a dentist or mouth/teeth doctor.

There are many similarities between a dentist and a medical doctor. In fact, they are both doctors first.

While studying medicine and surgery takes 6 years, dentistry and dental surgery is equally a 6 years course in most universities in Nigeria.

By the way, you can also take time to see our post on what you should know about studying medicine abroad.

Moreover, dentistry and medicine are both regulated by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN). In school, they study the same things, take the same courses, attend the same classes till the 5th year where they separate from their medicine counterparts.

Now that you have an idea what the course entails, let me show you the universities where you can study dentistry and dental surgery.
