What is Dentistry?

Dentistry is the profession or science dealing with the prevention and treatment of diseases and malformations of the teeth, gyms and oral cavity, and the removal, correction and replacement of decayed, damaged or lost parts, including such operations as the filling and crowning of teeth, straightening of teeth, and the construction of artificial dentures.

Tamayo and UPH President Antonio L. Tamayo, we are constantly able to pursue excellence in dental education through the provision of up-to-date facilities and programs for our students.
