Message from director
Welcome to the Department of Prosthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Chulalongkorn University. The Master and PhD courses of Prosthodontics were established more than 20 years. There are 18 full time staff and another 30 part-time staff in our department. The Master course was created to educate dentists who love to learn from the basic Prosthodontics concept through the advanced level and then develop their skill in practice in this field. Our clinic has a long waiting list of Prosthodontics rehabilitation needs patients from single crown restoration, single implant, multiple site crown or implant to the partial edentulous patients. Also these days as people still keep their natural teeth, we still have the chance to take care of those patients with total edentulous ridge. Recently, the new and higher education of Digital Dentistry concepts and skills are also introduced and conducted.
