Department of Dental Materials Sciences


About Us

The Department was established and is functioning since 1998 along with establishment of Saraswati Dental College. Since then the department is being continually refined.

This course will provide students with knowledge of dental materials, enabling them to understand links between materials and dentistry. In addition in will help them in understanding interfaces, biocompatibility, surface modifications and their characterization, and how these elements play a vital role in the success of dentistry.


Research Activities

Application of material science to dentistry as a subject which is growing recently. Certain dental materials, notably amalgam restorative materials and titanium implant materials, have already been used and researched significantly. The current research emphasis is on tooth coloured dental restorative material and nano-sized particles being incorporated into restorative and rehabilitative materials.
