  1. Inasmuch as you’re trying to enlighten the public, please get your facts right. Dentistry/Dental Surgery is not offered in Polytechnics or Colleges of Education. It is not to be confused with other dental related courses like Dental Therapy, Dental Technology etc. Those ones are the courses offered in Polytechnics.

  2. Ondo City Polytechnics is also one of the Polytechnic licensed by federal government in Nigeria. The Polytechnic also offered Dental Nursing Science as subdicipline in Dentistry. Enlist the Polytechnic among your school list. You can visit for details about the school.
