Department of Public Health Dentistry is that part of the dental instruction that deals with the prevention of diseases affecting the mouth, teeth and associated structures and by this promoting the overall oral and general health. This department strives to enlighten the dental profession about their responsibilities towards the community and bring about awareness about the social aspects of the profession. Here, instead of the patient coming to the hospital or clinic for dental care, the professionals themselves go to their doorstep to do the same. This is done by conducting regular dental camps using our mobile dental clinic with a team of well trained dentists and interns. By this, even the population at the remotest areas and poorest of conditions can be provided with dental care and management.
