About Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah She was born in Karachi on 30th July 1893. The Late Miss Jinnah was a boarder of Convent School, Bombay from 1902 to 1906. She joined St. Patrick School (Gandala) in 1906 and passed Matric in 1910. She passed her Senior Cambridge as private candidate in 1913. The Mohtarama joined Dr. Ahmed Dental College, Calcutta, the only Dental College in India in 1919 and qualified as a Dentist in 1922. Established a private clinic on Abdul Rahman Street in Bombay and also gave free service at Dhobi Talloo Municipal Clinic. In 1929,Miss Jinnah joined Quaid-e-Azam in the struggle for creation of Pakistan. In so doing she sacrificed her professional & private life. She was a source of great inspiration to him during difficult times. Indeed, the values that Miss Fatima Jinnah exemplified in her life-time are still relevant to us. While they are a source of inspiration to us in our present predication, her life provides us with a role model. Why Mohtarama Fatima Jinnah During the national presidential election campaign of 1964 late Ms. Fatima Jinnah, the younger sister of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Founder of Pakistan, expressed the wish that their should be a dental college at Karachi. Dr. Baqar Askary who was then the President of the Dow Medical College Students Union and President of National Students Federation while supporting Ms. Jinnah’s election campaign promised that a dental college would be established in Karachi. The campaign was launched in Dec. 1988 and by mid 1989, it was made clear that the Government had no intention of establishing a dental college at Karachi. However, the Federal Government in its Health Policy announced later, allowed medical & dental colleges to be established in the private sector Establishing a Private Dental College in Karachi : The FJDC Story It is a pioneer institution devoted to the teaching of dentistry, independently and not as a department of any medical college. The college is named “Fatima Jinnah Dental College” to pay respects and dedicated to the memory of Late Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, who was herself, a Dentist. Her publicly expressed desire that there should be a dental college at Karachi was at last fulfilled. This college was established in the University of Karachi academic year 1992-93. It is significant, that 1993 was the centenary year of the birth of the Mohtarma and the establishment of this college is a gift to the Nation on this auspicious occasion. With intimation to the Federal and Provincial Ministers of Health, the Pakistan Medical & Dental Council and the University of Karachi, Fatima Jinnah Dental College was born on the map of Pakistan. The Fatima Jinnah Dental College was established and is being run and managed by a duly registered Fatima Jinnah Dental College & Hospital Trust. It is a public charitable Trust with Syed Hashim Raza, one of the very senior civil servants and the administrator of the Estate of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, as its Chairman. Fatima Jinnah Dental College has produced over 600 top dental professionals. The college today boosts to be the largest in the country and second to none.

The major aim is to provide a sound but crisp knowledge on the biochemical basis of the life processes relevant to the human system and to dental/medical practice. The contents should be organised to build on the already existing information available to the students in the pre-university stage and reorienting. A mere rehash should be avoided.
The chemistry portion should strive towards providing information on the functional groups, hydrophobic and hydrophilic moieties and weak valence forces that organize macromolecules. Details on structure need not be emphasized.
Discussion on metabolic processes should put emphasis on the overall change, interdependence and molecular turnover. While details of the steps may be given, the student should not be expected to memorise them. An introduction to biochemical genetics and molecular biology is a must but details should be avoided. The exposure to antivitamins, antimetabolitess and enzyme inhibitors at this stage, will provide a basis for the future study of medical subjects. An overview of metabolic regulation is to be taught by covering hormonal action, second messengers and regulation of enzyme activities. Medical aspects of biochemistry should avoid describing innumerable functional tests most of which are not in vogue. Cataloguing genetic disorders under each head of metabolism is unnecessary. A few examples, which correlate genotype change to functional changes, should be adequate.
At the end of the course the student would be able to acquire a useful core of information, which can be retained for a long time. SEMESTER I:

The science of Dental material has undergone tremendous changes over the years. Continued research has led to new material systems and changing concepts in the dental field. Interlinked with various specialized branches of chemistry, practically all engineering applied sciences and biological characteristics, the science of dental material emerged as a basic sciences in itself with its own values and principles. AIMS:
Aim of the course is to present basic chemical and physical properties of dental materials as they are related to its manipulation to give a sound educational background so that the practice of dentistry emerged from art to empirical status of science, as more information through further research becomes available. It is also the aim of the course of dental materials to provide with certain criteria of selection and which will enable to discriminate between facts and propaganda with regards to claims of manufacturers. OBJECTIVES:
To understand the evolution and development of science of dental material. To explain purpose of course in dental materials to personnel’s concerned with the profession of the dentistry. Knowledge of physical and chemical properties. Knowledge of biomechanical requirements of particular restorative procedure. An intelligent compromise of the conflicting as well as co-ordinating factors into the desired Ernest. Laying down standards or specifications of various materials to guide to manufacturers as well as to help professionals. Search for newer and better materials, which may answer our requirements with greater satisfaction. To understand and evaluate the claims made by manufactures of dental materials. SCOPE:
The dental materials is employed in mechanical procedures including restorative dentistry such as prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontal, orthodontics and restorative materials. There is scarcely a dental procedure that does not make use of dental materials in one form or another and therefore the application of dental material is not limited to anyone branch of dentistry. Branches such as minor surgery and periodontics require less use of materials but the physical and chemical characters of materials are important in these fields. SEMESTER I

2.4.6- ETHICS
Introduction: There is a definite shift now from the traditional patient and doctor relationship and delivery of dental care. With the advances in science and technology and the increasing needs of the patient, their families and community, there is a concern for the health of the community as a whole. There is a shift to greater accountability to the society. Dental specialists like the other health professionals are confronted with many ethical problems. It is therefore absolutely necessary for each and every one in the health care delivery to prepare themselves to deal with these problems. To accomplish this and develop human values Council desires that all the trainees undergo ethical sensitization by lectures or discussion on ethical issues, discussion of cases with animportant ethical component.

Course content:
Introduction to ethics –
- What is ethics?
- What are values and norms?
- How to form a value system in one’s personal and professional life?
- Declaration of Helsinki, WHO declaration of Geneva, International code of ethics, D.C.I. Code of ethics.
The patient as a person.
Right to be respected
Truth and confidentiality
Autonomy of decision
Doctor Patient relationship

Profession Ethics –
Contract and confidentiality
Charging of fees, fee splitting
Prescription of drugs
Over-investigating the patient
Malpractice and negligence
Research Ethics –
