The Department

The purpose of any academic department is the positive transformation of the behaviours of students in terms of acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes. In order to achieve the desired results, objectives are clearly stated for each course to serve as measure of control and evaluation. The goals of the Department of Restorative Dentistry are in congruence with the goals of the Lagos State University College of Medicine as contained in the current medical and dental curricula. The Department of Restorative Dentistry offers comprehensive pre-doctoral and integrated modular courses in the following disciplines:

  • Conservative Dentistry which comprises Operative Dentistry, Fixed Prosthodontics and Endodontics;
  • Removable Prosthodontics; and
  • Science of Dental Materials

These disciplines are taught and learnt through series of lectures, seminars, laboratory exercises and clinical experiences to perform several skills assessments. Evaluations are designed to develop competence, confidence and knowledge in clinical restorative dentistry. On the successful completion of the requisite experiences and evolutions, students will be provided with opportunity to treat patients more independently in Advance Restorative Dentistry.
