    Khyber College of Dentistry has completed fifty years. We have celebrated the “GOLDEN JUBILEE” of Khyber College of Dentistry. We bow our heads before Almighty Allah who gave us the strength and provide us the guidance and material resources to bring it to its present status.

    Anyone who had visited the Dentistry Department in 1966 or around its old temporary abode , will not believe his eyes if he comes to the present Khyber College of Dentistry and Oral and Dental Hospital complex for the first time.

    He will immediately become aware that the staff working in brightly lit new surgeries is cheerful, open minded, receptive and eager for action- ready to face the world of the present, its new ideas and concepts, demands and opportunities with peculiar keenness.

    He would also know that the Department has a past and has now come to grips with it diligently and conscientiously and it has earned step by step a present in which it can flourish and be of help to others.

    The sapling of 1964 has now become a large fruit bearing tree. Everyone knows that a sapling needs tender care. But then what about a large fruit tree? If it has to live as a fruit bearing tree and maintain its sweetness and fragrance, it will require even greater care. Those of us who have been enjoying its fruit or those who have been associated with it in one form or the other must endeavor for its future well being.

    I have been fortunate to be associated with the Department/College from its inception. Actually the word associated is too inadequate. I consider it a part of my body. I cannot find words which could convey the real feelings of my attachment to the College.

    The message is dedicated to the Principals, Staff and Students of Khyber College of Dentistry- past, present and future.
