The Dublin Dental University Hospital has a 115 year history of providing patient care and education.

The Dublin Dental University Hospital is the leading academic dental centre in the country. In partnership with Trinity College Dublin, Ireland’s leading university, and other key stakeholders, we provide quality dental education and training for the entire dental team throughout the professional’s career.  We serve a unique group of patients from every county in Ireland which underpins our clinical education, and we deliver primary, secondary and tertiary dental care that is not available elsewhere in the country.

Research is fundamental to an academic dental centre. Elite oral health research generates the evidence base for our activities.  We have internationally recognised expertise in this area and rank in the top twenty of all Trinity College Dublin researchers.  The period of this Strategic Plan will build on that reputation.


The Dublin Dental University Hospital (DDUH) is the National Centre for education, research and patient care. We continuously strive to enhance the learning experiences of our students, alongside the delivery of high quality care to patients, in a dynamic academic environment.


The Dublin Dental University Hospital’s vision is as the academic dental centre in Ireland, internationally recognised for the quality of its education, research and clinical care programmes.
