The Dental Unit of the Bowen University Teaching Hospital was established as part of the care giving ministry of the Baptist Medical Centre to cater for the needs of patients who presented with oral conditions an complaints.
However, it was the Baptist Building at ibadan that accomodated the unit until July 1986, when it was relocated to its present site at the Bowen University Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso.
Some of the foundation members of staff who were involved in the management of the unit were Mr. Jimoh, Mr Akpan Akwa, Mr James Orisaleye consequent upon its relocation to its present site, the first Dental Surgeon for the unit on the person of Late Dr. A. O Afolayan was appointed. Over the years several Dental Surgeon have been appointed to oversee the unit and these include:

Dr. Igbojuba Godwin Luke,
Dr. Dele Ambeke,
Dr. Frank Odiase
Other member of staff who have been on ground to this and is Mrs. Oguntimehin who joined the service of the hospital in 1987.
