The Provost was appreciative of the class for its support for dental education in the College of Medicine, University of Lagos.

He informed them that the National Universities Commission (NUC) has accredited the Dental Bachelor of Dentistry Programme and soon the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) will be visiting the Faculty for professional re-accreditation of the programme.
