Ever since its establishment in 1988, the Hospital has set up the Department of Dentistry and various specialized sub-divisions to provide the most advanced and comprehensive dental care to the public. In addition, centers of excellence, such as the Dental Implant Center (est. 2010) and the Special Care Dental Center (est. 2016), were established to further enhance and improve the volume and quality of dental care.
National Cheng Kung University also serves as an excellent environment for fostering the future generations of clinicians and scientists in dentistry, as the Institute of Oral Medicine (est. 1991) and the School of Dentistry (est. 2019) offer fantastic opportunities for dental care education and oral health research in state-of-the-art facilities.
In these difficult times, every member of the Department of Stomatology has done a tremendous job and shown resilience to withstand the COVID-19 pandemic while maintaining the high quality of care to the patients in need. As the director of the Department, I firmly believe that, together, we can navigate through these turbulences, and soon we will be heading toward a brighter and safer future.
