Dean Message

Warm greetings and welcome to RAK College of Dental Sciences (RAKCODS).

As we enter into the new academic year, the dawn brings with it a new hope, and new thoughts, new talents. This is the time to infuse hope & optimism. The curriculum of the College has undergone a thorough and critical review by the college council, External advisory board and international experts of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research UAE so as to ensure top quality education and compliance with international standards. We have recently started the clinical sessions and over a span of 2 years have rendered free quality treatment to over seven thousand patients. We also have done a lot of community outreach programs to serve the community. Today we stand at a turning point and look forwards to a brighter future and hope we along with our students scale new heights in the field of dentistry.

RAKCODS believes in a holistic development of our students as better human beings with ethics and principles apart from being the best dentists around. It is a place where one can explore their hidden talents and gain confidence in fostering innovation.

We are here to throw light on the path of sound oral health of the community at large. I wholeheartedly welcome each one of you to our family. Wish you all success and a bright future.

Cordially Yours,
