Paedodontia And Preventive
The Program is designed to prepare qualified world class Dental Surgeons for teaching, research and patient care. The rigorous course of study includes seminars, lectures, clinical cases, discussions and clinical paediatrics with the objective that the student will learn the basic concepts necessary for the successful diagnosis and treatment of the child from birth – 16 years of age.
The Post Graduate course is of 3 years duration. In the first year the student has to deliver seminars on the basic sciences, complete laboratory projects and submit a library dissertation before he/she is allowed to work on patients.
The second and third year prepares the students in clinical paediatric dentistry, including behaviour management, preventive dentistry, radiography, restorative dentistry, pulp therapy, space maintenance and traumatic dental injuries in the primary and permanent dentition etc.
It is mandatory for
the post-graduate students to attend and participate in the National
conferences of Paedodontia and Preventive Dentistry and the National PG
convention held annually especially for the students giving them a platform
to mingle and deliver their clinical and research work presentations. Their
work is appreciated in the form of various prizes, trophies etc. In addition
to the poster and paper presentation in conferences they have to publish
their research work in the National and International Pediatric Journals.
The Department has a colorful and lively ambience and the children are handled with Tender Loving Care. We try to instill a positive attitude in the child towards dental health in future years to come. All treatment is carried out under the direct supervision of the highly qualified faculty of the Department.
The Department is well equipped with all the diagnostic and treatment facilities. A departmental reference library is also maintained to help the students in the academic and research work. School children in the neighborhood have been involved in the primary preventive programs. We plan to include all the school in the surrounding areas in these programs very soon. In the near future we plan to add the following facilities in the department – Laser unit, Pulp Testing by Doppler flowmetry and CAD-CAM.
