Dentistry is the branch of medicine that is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body. Dentistry is widely considered necessary for complete overall health of an individual. The dentist’s supporting team –which includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists –aids in providing oral health services.

The department plays an important role in society as a provider of preventive, restorative and curative clinical services i.e., comprehensive care to the public at large. Urbanization, increasing levels of education and standard of living and better health consciousness are bound to make dental department an important discipline in medical college. Under the above guidelines, the main motto of the department of Dentistry is “Oral health for a better health”. This is spread to the masses by means of well-organized school and Community Dental Health education programs. All the above activities help in creating awareness among the rural population. This has all the potential to change the very scenario of dentistry and oral health status for the good.
