Oral Medicine from the University of the Western Cape belongs to the Faculty of Dentistry, a faculty which offers high-quality professional education and service based clinical training at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, laying the foundation for life-long professional development.
The Academic Oral Health Centres at Tygerberg and at Mitchells Plain are at the core of our clinical platform, but clinical care and training activities also take place at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's and Groote Schuur hospitals, Gugulethu and Mitchells Plain Dental Clinics, the Phelophepha Health Trains and many other locations served by our mobile dental clinic.
We provide a unique and diverse range of community and hospital settings in which students learn and refine their clinical skills, while delivering much needed oral health care to surrounding communities.
