It is the first twinning dental programme run by the Vinayaka Missions University. The five years' programme was approved by the Ministry of Higher Education which allowed an intake of 50 students and this has subsequently been raised to 75 per year. It is Malaysia's first stand alone full-fledged dental college and specialist dental centre which offers state-of-the-art dental care. The dental clinic which has been fully operational for the past 5 years has already started to play a major role in the development of dental care, especially for patients who are from the lower income group, the physically and mentally challenged groups and senior citizens as well. As part of its social obligation, PIDC provides subsidized dental treatment for the lower socio-economic groups. The institution works together with the Penang state government, NGOs and welfare organizations to create awareness and encourage people from the lower socio-economic groups to obtain specialist dental care at very affordable fees.Malaysia's present dentist: patient ratio is one doctor to 10,500 patients while the ideal ratio is 1:4,000 (WHO standard). PIDC is offering more dental seats to produce more dentists to meet the demand. PIDC is in association with Vinayaka Missions University of India which currently manages 25 colleges in India and produces 25,000 graduates a year. The PIDC Centre in Butterworth consists of three polyclinics with 75 dental units. Every dental unit is capable of delivering the full range of treatment options.
