Dow Dental College

About DDC

Enter a new era with our standalone Paediatric Dentistry Department, a historic milestone in Karachi. Born from the Operative Dentistry Department, it now boasts 10 specialized dental units, addressing unique pediatric dental needs. Our expanded faculty and facilities provide a comprehensive educational journey, focusing on prevention, restorations, traumas, and interceptive orthodontics. Committed to holistic care, we enhance children’s oral health and overall well-being from birth to adolescence.

Established in 2012, Dow Dental College (DDC) prioritizes professional excellence in dental sciences. The original building, inaugurated by Prof Sharif Chaudhry, saw its Outpatient Department (OPD) begin operations in October 2012. With the first batch of 50 students admitted in the same year, DDC’s commitment to quality dental education continued. In November 2018, a new seven-story facility, funded by HEC and local grants, was inaugurated, showcasing cutting-edge facilities for teaching and research. Dedicated to improving clinical services and student training, DDC invests in advanced equipment and faculty development, aligning with the University’s mission for dental sciences excellence.
