Khyber Medical College, an undergraduate institution, has been improving the quality of service provided to the patients. Through its various teaching departments its has upgraded the quality service program. The provincial assembly of North West Frontier Province has passed the act for upgradation of Khyber Medical College and Khyber College of Dentistry to Khyber Medical University (KMC) Peshawar.

Dr. Ahmad Iqbal was appointed as first Chairman and Principal of the Khyber College of Dentistry. The first batch graduated in 1968 and Pakistan medical and dental council accorded recognition to B.D.S degree in Nov 1968. From the modest start it has grown to become a fully developed teaching institute with its modern Oral and Dental hospital.
