Fatima Jinnah Dental College is the oldest dental school in Karachi city and one of the oldest in Pakistan. Established in the year of 1992, it is run and managed by a duly registered Fatima Jinnah Dental College & Hospital Trust.
With intimation to the Federal and Provincial Ministries of Health, the PMDC and the University of Karachi and after essential documentation, Fatima Jinnah Dental College was born on the map of Pakistan. It is believed to be a pioneer institution devoted to the teaching of dentistry, independently and not as a department of any medical college.
The College is termed as “Fatima Jinnah Dental College” to pay respect and homage to the memory of Late Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, who was herself, a Dentist. The Mohtarma, sister of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, qualified as a dentist in early part of this century in the time period of 1922, in undivided India. Because of her commitment to the cause of creation of Pakistan, she sacrificed her professional & personal life. She was honored by the title of “Madar-e-Millat” (Mother of the Nation), by which name she is yet fondly remembered. The development of this College is also the fulfillment of the promise made to Late Miss Fatima Jinnah by Dr. S. Baqar Askary, the Chief Executive Officer and founder of this College, in the year of Dec. 1966, during the struggle of Mohtarma for democracy.
It consumed a long time, but by the Grace of ALLAH, the dream is a reality today. This college was developed in the University of Karachi academic year 1992-93. It is important that 1993 was the centenary year of the birth of the Mohtarma and the development of this College was a gift to the Nation on this auspicious occasion.
