Abstract: The education of dentists at the Faculty of Dentistry, Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) , is a unique programme. It adopts the integration of naqli (revealed knowledge) and aqli (rational science) as a philosophical basis of its dental education programme. The objective of this paper is to examine the curriculum, focusing on structure, content and the intangibles of the programme leading to the degree of Bachelor of Dental Surgery. This is a qualitative study using literature review and document analysis. The curriculum is designed by first identifying a set of ten (10) values that are fundamental in Islamic science. These are subsequently converted to programme educational objectives. The tawhidic principle forms the axis of this value system that provides the guide in moulding a student to be a good person in terms of character and a competent professional as determined by the profession.
