(MENAFN - Arab News) The King Saud University (KSU) is to set up a new college within the Girls Campus for Saudi female undergraduates in its Dentistry Faculty, King Saud University Rector Dr. Badran A. Al-Omar said on Sunday.



Al-Omar was inaugurating KSU's 15th International Dental with the Saudi Dental Society at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center on Sunday



He said the new facility would double the number of dental clinics from 381 to 761 clinics. This would enable the clinics to increase the number of patients from 300,000 to 650,000. He pointed out the new facility which would commence its new session during the next semester would accommodate postgraduate female students as well as new graduates



At present, he said there are some 8,000 students enrolled at the university. He also commended the services rendered by the College of Dentistry, King Saud University and the Saudi Dental Society and noted that they are committed to the leadership, excellence and service to the community

The program organized by the KSU was held under the patronage of the Minister of Higher Education Dr. Khalid Al-Angary



"Over the past decades, the Kingdom has changed from a desert to a modern and sophisticated country providing quality education. It has enabled its curricula and academic programs with clinical applications and the training of extremely capable health professionals," Professor Khalid Al-Wazzan, chairman of the Organizing Committee and dean of the College of Dentistry said in his speech



Interestingly, he said, the King Saud University, the host institution for both the College of Dentistry and the Saudi Dental Society, is primarily intent on becoming a Research University where contemporary knowledge and technology should be put into harmonious action.



"The theme of this meeting 'Research and Technology in Oral Health Care' emphasizes that dentistry as a field of science will have more opportunity to ercome national and international challenges when engaged in further research and the use of advanced technology.


He said that the meeting included an inclusive presentation of scientific and clinical issues through oral presentations, poster presentations and continuing education programs with a state-of-the-art exhibit of dental/medical equipment and materials

He pointed out that the meeting will be a distinctive opportunity for dental professionals to associate with and share in the discussion of ideas with distinguished colleagues in the dental profession.

Dr. Mohammad I. Al-Obaida, president of Saudi Dental Society, co-chairman of Organizing Committee and chairman of the Exhibition and Food Committee, said the conference is a joint collaborative effort of King Saud University, College of Dentistry and the Saudi Dental Society.

"With the continuous success of our previous conferences and the Saudi Dental Society's merit of being at the top among all the dental organizations in the Kingdom, I enjoin you to remain committed to our practice by constantly updating ourselves and aspiring to be the best for the community we vow to serve."

"We are bringing in world renowned foreign speakers from all disciplines of the dental practice for our scientific seminars. Continuing Educational courses and workshops will also be offered. This would add the element of hands-on education that our members had requested," he noted.

One of the highlights of the conference is the Research Award for Graduates, Students and Poster Award Presentation where the best research paper and poster presentation will receive a prize and plaque of recognition

"This is one way of providing the best service and support for our members and colleagues. The Exhibition which has the participation of dental and medical companies will offer attendees the opportunity to explore the depth and breadth of the latest products, services, tools and technologies available in today's global market," he noted
