The Faculty of Dentistry

In 1940, the University founded the Department of Dentistry as an independent department. This was close to the time when the government announced its policy to dissuade people from chewing betel nuts and making them realize the negative effects of betel nut chewing, as being not only the sign of being uncivilized but also the source of many diseases. In 1943, with the Establishment of the University of Medicine Act, the Department of Dentistry was transferred to the administration of the University of Medicine and it was affiliated with Chulalongkorn University again in 1972.
