The Dental Material Sciences Department is basically established to provide education and clinical training to students of BDS Proramme, Postgraduate trainees, Dental House Officers and students of Dental Technology. These educational and training facilities availed by local students will save a substantial amount of money that would have been otherwise spent on the educational and training of students elsewhere. It is to mention that the kind of educational and training facilities we provide in the department of basic dental material sciences department are very expensive to pursue in institutions abroad.
Training of students in the specialty of basic dental material sciences is facilitated through lectures, one-one-one and group discussion, chair-side teaching, clinical teaching sessions, laboratory technology sessions, Clinical case reporting, clinical audit meeting, clinic-pathological conferences / seminars and journal club meetings.
Group and individual tutoring, mentoring and counseling session are also used as methods of imparting desirable knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for the practice of Basic dental material sciences department in particular and for the practice of dentistry in general.
Delivering dental education oriented towards excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate research. This would help us towards integrating the various disciplines of medicine and dentistry which would in turn benefit the community by their own productivity because the Department of Dental Materials encompasses the specialties of Conservative Dentistry, Fixed Basic dental material sciences department, Endodontics and Dental Material Sciences.
To enhance the activity of dental students, who possess the required values and aptitude, with core material knowledge and aligned the practical skill which covers the chemical, physical and biological properties of dental materials those are clinically relevant to the practice of general dentistry. Biocompatibility of materials needs to be dealt in terms of the clinical implementation and the availability according to the requirement of the community.
The aims of our mission can be achieved by:
