SOPDEN is acronym for “Society of Postgraduate Dental Education in Nepal”. The history of dental education is not a long one in Nepal. The undergraduate dental education was started 13 years back in 1999, whereas the postgraduate dental education was started only four years back. The first PG program was started by NAMS (National Institute of Medical Science) in 2008 followed by IOM (Institute of Medicine, Tribhuvan University) and Peoples’ Dental College, Kathmandu in 2010, and Universal College of Medical Science, Bhairawa and BP Koirala Institute of Health Science, Dharan in 2011. Since postgraduate education is still in its infancy, it becomes the duty of all the stakeholders to join hand in hand to uplift the standard of postgraduate education in our country. Therefore, SOPDEN is registered as a non-profitable academic organization under Nepal government to create a common forum for all those who want to contribute to the growth of postgraduate dental education in Nepal.
