The Department of Periodontics deals with the study of tooth supporting structures, in health and disease. It is also concerned with the prevention and corrective measures in the management of gingival and periodontal diseases.
The Department began in 1980 as an undergraduate training center; and later the post- graduate section was setup in 1986. Since then, hundred fifty plus students have been churned out at the post-graduate level alone.
The post-graduate students are encouraged to unleash their free thinking as a part of problem-based learning activities. They are expected to carry out state of the art research activities in the form of dissertations and otherwise.
The Department conducted one of the biggest and memorable conferences at the national level in the specialty of Periodontics; and was a host to a number of galaxies of international (10) and national speakers (10). It was attended by more than 1100 delegates from across the country and overseas.
We plan to conduct many more CDE programs catering to various diversification's of the subject - Immunology, Host Modulation, Periodontal Microsurgery, Genetics, Implants and so on.
The Department has always stood for its "Tradition of Excellence" since last thirty seven years and shall continue sowing its seeds of wisdom for many more years to come.
