Surveys are also taken up every year to provide an opportunity for the post-Graduate students to learn from such community projects.

Future Plans for the development of the Department:-

As we have a good team of staff, we should go in for more intakes of post graduates and also start a diploma course in Orthodontics as introduced by DCI.

Apart from the routine curriculum, we intend to build up database for the cases recorded which will be useful for research programmes.

As Our Principal is planning for networking and WIFI system in the new block, we intend to develop Teledentistry and Tele-orthodontics.

We also intend to start a Growth centre.
