On 29 Sept 2018, the International School of Dentistry, University of Prima Indonesia, welcomed new students for the commencement of 2018-2023 with an honour White Coat Ceremony. The program is incorporated with McGann Postgraduate School of Dentistry (MISD) in the US, aiming to produce future Doctors of Dental Surgery at highly international standards. The ceremony was respectfully organized in Royal Prima Hospital, with attendance of Mr. Miles McGann - Director of MISD, Dr. Nyoman E. Lister - Chairman of Prima Corporation, and Dr. Cuong Vo Phu - UNPRI Head of the International Medicine and Dentistry program.
Throughout four intakes with 27 students from Vietnam, MISD Indonesia has continuously proven its training quality and sustainability through significant academic achievements of students each year. With an internationalized training syllabus, provided parallel modern dental knowledge and clinical skills, together with dedicated lecturers from the UK, Australia and the US, students quickly develop confidence in initiating therapeutic management plans, as well as fluently communicating in English and Bahasa (*). These are vital benefits for future dentists to practice in ASEAN community, which are not addressed by many other educational institutions.
Following the Signed Agreement for Dental Practice within ASEAN countries on 26/02/2009 and the Approval of the National Licensing Regulations on Diagnosis and Treatment in Vietnam by the Ministry of Health on 01/01/2011, MISD Indonesia promises to produce international standardized resources of dentists in ASEAN countries in the near future.
