The Kulliyyah of Dentistry is located at IIUM Kuantan campus in Bandar Indera Mahkota, about 5 km from the Kuantan town centre. Kulliyyah of Dentistry is a part of an elite university, as it is the most international university in Malaysia by student composition, with student’s intake from more than 95 different countries from around the world. The other unique aspect of IIUM is the high inspiration by the concept of Islamicization of human knowledge and the idea of Tawheed. The use of English as the medium of communication is done to facilitate our status as an international learning institution, admitting Malaysians as well as non-Malaysians.
