"King’s places great importance on the research carried out in the Dental Institute. It is a delight for this effort to be recognised and for the Dental Institute to be placed so high in the Shanghai Ranking. King’s is the clear top dental school for research outside North America using metrics that are based on measurable outcomes. I am very pleased the work of many colleagues receives the recognition it so richly deserves."
