Message from the Head of Periodontics Study Program

Prof. Dr. Sri Oktawati, drg., Sp.Perio (K)

Peace be upon you, and Allah’s mercy and blessings.

Many Indonesians today enjoy excellent oral health and are keeping their natural teeth throughout their lives. But this is not the case for everyone. There are still many problems in the oral cavity at almost all ages. Too many people mistakenly believe that they need to see a dentist only if they are in pain or think something is wrong, but they’re missing the bigger picture. A dental visit means being examined by a doctor of oral health capable of diagnosing and treating conditions that can range from routine to extremely complex.

Periodontia Specialist Educational Program strives to continuously improve the quality of learning and be responsive to changes and developments in quality, professional and responsible dental science and technology in accordance with the goals of intellectuals with maritime character. Implement and disseminate dentistry for the benefit of society.

Periodontia is a branch of dentistry that studies the periodontium (gingiva, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and cementum) in healthy and pathological conditions, as well as taking preventive, care, regenerative and maintenance measures, in order to maintain and restore optimal function of the stomatognathic system.

Our study program was first opened in 2010 and is the only periodontics specialist study program in East Indonesia. Teaching and learning activities in our Specialist Educational Program are carried out supported by adequate and sophisticated facilities and infrastructure. Our Specialist Educational Program students have high academic excellence and have various achievements on a national and international scale. Our graduates and alumni are expected to work for various agencies in regions throughout Indonesia to promote health and contribute to advancing oral health. As a result, we feel it has the potential to improve people’s quality of life.
