Under the able guidance of the experienced teaching staff, the treatment is rendered by the skilful students and the interns. Hi-tech gadgets like electronic pulp tester, electronic apex locator, digital radiography, laser and high-speed rotary instruments, amalgamators etc. are used routinely for the diagnosis and treatment. The treatment is carried out under total aseptic conditions by using modern “flash” sterilizers and ultra-sonic cleaners. Keeping the motto ”Service to Humanity”  and providing the best possible treatment to the patients.

UG PROGRAMME

Training - The Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics gives training to Second year BDS students in the pre-clinical laboratory which is equipped with 50 “simulated models”. Students are exposed to various aspects of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics theoretically, practically and the skills of the students are honed on these simulated patients before they take on the real patients in the Third year.

Clinical - The clinical programs spread over 3 years i.e. during Third and Final year of BDS curriculum and Internship program wherein intensive clinical teaching is given consisting of a variety of fillings and root canal treatment and other procedures. There is daily clinical teaching and demonstrations of various procedures to BDS Third year, Final year and Interns to enhanced their knowledge and clinical skills.  Students are also given a consultant demonstration of newer gadgets and techniques. Also, they get to see and use the assortments of restorative materials. Apart from the clinical training, the student’s thirst for acquiring knowledge is fulfilled by the department library, internet, museum, charts etc. All the lectures are delivered with excellent audio-video support. Seminars and tutorials are conducted for final year BDS students to improve their vocational qualities.

PG PROGRAMME

The Department admits 6 PG students each year. The “Masters” Programme extends to 3 years. During the 1st year, the student has to work on phantom heads to recoup their skills. Stressing on the quality work, all the exercises beginning with simple amalgam fillings to complicated post-core preparations are taught on the phantom heads. More stress is given on allied basic medical and dental sciences. The PG students are also expected to write a Library Thesis which enables them to prepare themselves for Final Thesis. Equipped with their laptops the students are encouraged to present their seminars on the LCD Projector. During this period the students are also trained to deliver lectures to the undergraduates.

During the 2nd and 3rd year the clinical training intensifies, the students have to deal with a variety of simple to complicated cases. They have to try every technique in the book and record their achievements in a log=book. They have to complete their Final thesis work by the end of 2nd year and start preparing for the Final Examination. The examination consists of 4 written papers and 2 –day clinical examination culminating in “Grand Viva-Voce”.
