The faculty has consistently placed first in the UK since 2017, but the 2020 ranking marks a significant new high for the faculty.  Indeed, one never achieved by a King’s College London faculty before.

The latest result illustrates the exceptional quality of the research and education performed at King’s Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences. Shaped by a diverse student and staff population which adds strength to the faculty standing, this latest ranking confirms their position as a world-class institution.

The faculty is obviously delighted to receive this accolade. I would personally like to thank all members of staff and all our students whose dedication and abilities are responsible for this notable achievement.

Professor Mike Curtis, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences

This achievement recognises the major contribution of the faculty to the research base of dentistry, and the high quality of education and career preparation provided to our students, under the skilled leadership of Professor Mike Curtis. Congratulations to all.
