The Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology is considered as the backbone of Dentistry as it deals with the diagnosis of all the dental diseases. Further it is considered special as this department is a combination of Oral Medicine as well as Maxillofacial Radiology. Further, this department serves as a connecting link between dentistry and Medicine. The department serves and thrives to teach the students regarding the diagnosis and treatment protocol of different head and neck medical diseases. Since the oral cavity is considered as the mirror of the overall health of the individual, the students are made well aware of all these signs and symptoms. The department also imparts knowledge regarding the various psychological conditions having oral implications and vice versa. In a nutshell, the oral medicine department works as a part of a multi-disciplinary patient care team.

 Training in Maxillofacial Radiology includes the knowledge and expertise in the acquisition and interpretation of radiographic images including IOPA’s and other intraoral as well as extraoral techniques. Training also includes the expertise in conventional and advanced maxillofacial imaging including CT and MRI as well.

Periodontology is the dental specialty that focuses on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gingiva, or “gums” and other surrounding tissues. The Department of Periodontology & Oral Implantology educates the under graduate students in the didactic and clinical applications necessary to perform the entire spectrum of periodontal procedures. The department includes MDS programme which is a three-year program with an intake capacity of 5 students per year. The department also includes the Dental Hygiene Program, which has a intake capacity of 20 students per year. The goal of the Department is to promote periodontal dentistry as dental medicine where prevention can be practiced. Periodontists believe that personal good oral hygiene behaviors are best taught to and practiced by age-specific and social groups through oral health education. Periodontal medicine perceives good oral health as an open gateway to good general systemic health, and documents the many links to general systemic health affected by the destructive presence of inflammation and oral infection from bacteria.
