UCU School of Dentistry receives donations of medical equipment

UCU School of Dentistry (SoD) has received a donation of 30 pieces of dentistry equipment, namely dental articulators, from Pan Dental Surgery, a Dental care facility based Naguru, Kampala.

These were received by Dr. James Magara, the Dean UCU SoD, during a handover meeting, at the campus’ boardroom, on Wednesday, October 06, 2021. He said the donations are handy and were much-needed donation by the institution. “This will go a long way in helping us train upcoming dentists. Our first year is just beginning, so this comes at a very good time,” he said. Dental articulators are devices that artificially reproduce the motion of the upper jaw and lower jaw of a patient.

Dr. Tom Mutyabule, the Chief Executive Officer of Pan Dental Surgery, thinks very highly of the UCU SoD and hopes that reception of the articulators sets a good foundation for a potential partnership between the two institutions.

Dr. Tom makes a demonstration of the unique operation of the dental articulators.

“The UCU School of Dentistry is very impressive. It has a nice layout. You have committed staff and brand new equipment,” he said. So, I hope our donation will also go a long way in making your life much easier,” he says.

Dr. Mutyabule also expressed interest in scoring a partnership with UCU SoD. “I hope it will be the beginning of a partnership with the UCU Dental institution,” he said.

UCU SoD joins a string of Dentistry institutions allover Uganda, to which Pan Dental Surgery has been making like donations, including: Makerere University, Masaka Dental Institution, etc.
