Late 2018, as the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences at King’s College London entered the 20th year anniversary of its formation, an extensive academic review led to the development of an ambitious strategic plan with a vision to be world leading in dental, oral and craniofacial education, research and clinical care by 2023. 

To realise this vision the faculty reorganised their internal structures to best support their ambitions in education, research, international affairs, service to society and the London agenda as described in King’s Strategic Vision 2029

To support the faculty in achieving their ambitions, a new leadership team was established. 




The faculty distinguishes itself by its unique research portfolio in dental, oral and craniofacial sciences, embracing blue skies discovery research in addition to translational and clinical sciences. The research focuses on three key pillars which link with each other, the wider health sciences at King’s, and with external partnerships.  

The three themes are: 

  • Development, Regeneration, Repair & Tissue Engineering 
  • Immunity, Infection & Host Microbiome Interactions 
  • Clinical, Translational & Population Health 

From these three themes, three research centres were established, each led by a Head of Centre.



International (Research) and Impact Leads

Given the importance of the international and impact agenda to the five year plan, the faculty has an international and impact leadership team.
