Our alumni

KUSMS School of Dentistry has always provided me an excellent supporting backbone in my journey from a dental student in Nepal, to starting my postgraduate studies in oral surgery in Klinikum Stuttgart-Katharinenhospital, Germany. In KUSMS you are provided with excellent education by highly experienced faculty members, from which you become prepared for any situation in one’s professional life. The teachers and faculty members here have guided me with their outstanding knowledge, not only during my student years but also after graduating and even now. An international level of foundation of knowledge was laid upon me during my student years in KUSMS, which helped me tremendously in attaining my license as a dentist in Germany. I feel forever grateful to the KUSMS School of Dentistry family.
