Course programme




It is said that "child is the father of man", Dentistry for children is perhaps the most needed yet the most neglected of all services provided by the dental professionals. Earlier the dreaded dental visits were meant only to pull out a tooth which caused nagging pain. Now-a-days dentistry has spread its wings far and wide to include various branches, pediatric dentistry being one among them. Pedodontic knowledge too is expanding and encompassing wider areas of interest. Practicing exemplary dentistry in children is not easy, as it requires more than routine dental knowledge.

PEDODONTICS IS THAT BRANCH OF DENTISTRY CONCERNED WITH PROVIDING COMPREHENSIVE DENTAL CARE AND TREATMENT FOR THE CHILD PATIENT. TREATMENT IS BASED ON THE CHILD’S TEMPERAMENT AND BEHAVIOUR.

Course Offered

B.D.S COURSE: Pedodontics and preventive dentistry is taught as a subject at 3rd and 4th B.D.S levels. A low teacher-student ratio ensures that student and patient both receive personalized attention and direct supervision. Interns are encouraged to independently handle uncomplicated cases.

M.D.S COURSE: The M.D.S course started in the year 2002-2003 and is recognized by BABA FARID UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES, FARIDKOT, PUNJAB.

The P.G programme, though still in its infancy, is moulded in such a way as to suit the needs of the years to come. A separate P.G. clinic in the department is well equipped to meet the needs of the post-graduates and patients. A clinical laboratory is attached to the P.G. clinic.

Every year, 4 students are admitted through an all-India entrance examination held in the month of January.50% of the seats are reserved for the Christian minority candidates and remaining 50% are for the open general category.
