The Department of Dental Management Sciences is one of eight academic departments in the School of Dentistry. The Department plays a significant role in the School of Dentistry’s vision, namely to be “The Institution of Preference in Oral Health Care Training”.
The Department was established on 1 December 2006 as a result of the changing needs of the dental profession: it had become essential for the modern dentist and oral hygienist to, amongst other things, be able to think strategically; to have financial decision making abilities; to manage people effectively; to communicate professionally and with empathy with the patient and to have an ethical approach as an oral health care practitioner. The Department is the first of its kind at a dental teaching institution in South Africa.
Prospective students are encouraged to take a look at the available academic programmes or contact us for more information.
