Dental Mission at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology. The Graduate School of Dentistry (SOD) was born out of a desire with mutual collaboration from PUST Division of Medical Science (DMS). 2012 saw the initiation of a dental clinic within the university to provide dental and oral care for PUST students and staff. This lead to the founding vision for the PUST School of Dentistry. Support gathered from like-minded dentists in the US and South Korea who also desired dental education in the DPRK. Since then, numerous teams of dentists have visited the dental clinic at PUST and treated many patients. Most of them have committed themselves to participate in the shared effort to build the dental school. October 2016, PUST School of Dentistry has opened with 9 graduate dental students. We will share the vision and mission of the PUST SOD.
Dr. Henry Kim has been serving as an Adjunct Professor of Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) School of Dentistry since 2013. He received his dental degree from Boston University and his dental specialty degree in Prosthodontics and Master’s in Medical Science degree from Harvard University.
