Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Prosthodontics
Prosthodontics is that branch of dentistry which deals with the restoration and maintenance of oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of the patient by the restoration of the missing natural teeth. It also deals with the replacement of missing teeth and contiguous oral and maxillofacial tissues with artificial substitutes. This discipline includes Fixed, Removable, Maxillofacial and Implant Prosthodontics. The department has a very well designed dental lab with all the latest, state of the art equipments
to provide best services to the patients. The lab is well staffed with talented technicians, and they are all under control of the Professor to maintain the quality of work. The department treats about 80-90 patients per day, with all different types of cases. The undergraduate students have excellent clinical materials to learn all the treatment modalities in Prosthodontics under the continuous guidance and supervision of dedicated staff. The main attraction of our department is the three year advanced speciality education programme.
The post graduates will be trained in all phases of rehabilitative procedures including implant placement and maxillo-facial prosthetic rehabilitation.
The candidates also need to complete a research project in their post graduate programme under the guidance of the concerned heads. The Department has two full time Professors, two Readers and one Sr. Lecturers with MDS qualification and seven Lecturers with BDS qualification.
