The University of Hong Kong’s Dentistry has been ranked No. 2 in the world, according to the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022. It marks the 5th time that HKU Dentistry has been ranked among the top 2 globally, which so far, no other institution in the world has achieved previously.
Professor Thomas Flemmig, Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, is delighted to learn about the latest ranking of HKU Dentistry. He said that it is a testament to academic excellence led by a shared vision of being the global leader in oral health science, education, and professional care, and driven by a team of dedicated and talented staff and students.
Professor Flemmig stressed that this remarkable success would not have been possible without the stimulating and supportive environment at the University of Hong Kong and the invaluable support of the members of the Prince Philip Dental Hospital. He said: “This outstanding accomplishment comes at a challenging time where many of us may look for good news to lift our spirits. This achievement will help us to look beyond the difficulties we are facing and remind us that it is in our hands to create the future.” He remarked that the Faculty is the only institution in Hong Kong that provides undergraduate and postgraduate dental degrees and has educated essentially all of the dentists and dental specialists working in Hong Kong today.
This year, the Faculty is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. Within just four decades, the Faculty has risen from humble beginnings to one of the most premier dental institutions in the world. The Faculty recently established an Institute for Advanced Dentistry as a centre of excellence for the treatment of advanced and complex oral conditions. It also provides postgraduate education and fosters innovation and translational research.
