Professor Dr. Muhammad Azhar Sheikh
Since its inception in early 2014, Foundation University College of Dentistry (FUCD) has embraced upon a new journey with an aim to be known as one of Pakistan's most welcoming and inclusive institutions of graduate & Post graduate education in dentistry. We are proud to be in strong collaboration with Foundation University Medical College (FUMC) which has a reputation for innovative, inspiring and exciting education as well as rigorous training in the art and science of medicine & surgery. The presence of both these institutes along with their respective teaching hospitals at the same premises provides a conducive environment to achieve academic excellence and nurture skills. The highly qualified and dedicated faculty as well as the progressively evolving facilities endeavors to take its students to the pinnacle of academic excellence. At the same time we would like to assure students & parents that FUCD proved environment of self-integrity, dignity and respect.

Our aim is to produce dentists who are capable to serve the oral health needs of our population with competence respect and integrity. FUCD believes in innovating the traditional curriculum by adopting a system-based, integrated modular curriculum which is already in vogue at most modern institutes of the country and world. The student will be educated in basic medical and dental sciences in the initial two years and will be trained in different clinical specialties in third and final years including Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Operative/Restorative Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Periodontics and Orthodontics on simulated models (phantom heads) and as well as live clinical scenarios.

FUCD offers the most modern and state of the art clinical facilities available in the country with services ranging from fillings and root canal treatments Dentures to Orthodontics Implants and Major surgeries of the jaws, mouth and face. It houses its own Central Sterilization and Supply Department (CSSD), specially designed for enabling the clinicians to provide quality care with absolutely no compromise on sterilization and cross-infection control. The hospital is fully equipped with digital radiography systems including perisapical, OPGs and Cephalometric X-rays to CT scans and MRI. Such state of the art infrastructure and facilities ensure a high quality treatment delivered to our patients in an efficient and a cost effective manner.

Once qualified from (FUCD) graduates will also be provided the opportunity to complete their house jobs under the same institute i.e. Fauji Foundation Dental Hospital (FFDH). The purpose built campus of FUCD with state of the art infrastructure, along with a tertiary care teaching hospital (Fauji Foundation Hospital) and other allied facilities are located at the junction of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. This strategic location serves as an easy access to a variety of patients not only from the twin cities but also from the suburbs and far flung areas of the region, which will give our students a chance to learn the diverse conditions faced by a population of varied socio-economic backgrounds.
