Founded in 1989, FMDUP is a prestigious institution, nationally and internationally, in the fields of teaching and research in oral health. Its high-quality training in dentistry, rooted in a solid commitment to scientific production in the field of Forensic Sciences, is a large part of FMDUP’s success.
In addition to these factors, the Faculty has strong community ties, as shown by its oral health clinic open to the population and run by the institution’s students and teaching staff.
The current FMDUP building opened in October 1997 and is located on U.Porto’s Campus II (Asprela). Among its neighbouring buildings are the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences and the Asprela e-Learning Café.
