Located in Butterworth, Penang, PIDC offers the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) programme that’s accredited by MQA and recognised by the Malaysian Dental Council. The programme pathway allows you to pursue your first 2 years of clinical studies at Saujana Putra Campus, MAHSA University, and final 3 years of clinical training at PIDC Campus in Penang. The institution also offers a Foundation in Science programme that’s specifically crafted to prepare you for the DDS programme.
As a full-fledged dental college, PIDC has the largest on-site dental clinic in a private dental school. The clinic receives a good patient flow, allowing you to have ample clinical exposure.
