Training in Periodontics begins in the first year of B.D.S. with an introduction to the subject that is covered in the Fundamentals of Dentistry, Dental Armamentarium in the second year and Practice Management in the third year of B.D.S. The core subject is taught in the fourth year of the program and includes training in clinical skills, academic content and research work.
Our students are introduced to Periodontics from the first year of their undergraduate training using innovative teaching methods such as Multiple Interactive Learning Algorithm (MILA), the use of flipped classes and iBooks to enhance their learning experience.
Our undergraduate students perform the maximum number of periodontal procedures amongst all dental colleges across the country. We train our students to use iPad-based Hospital Management Systems for periodontal charting and treatment planning. In addition, other unique aspects include the use of ultrasonic scalers from the third year of B.D.S. and training to perform minor periodontal surgical instruments.
The department encourages under-graduate students to undertake short-term projects in various disciplines of Periodontics and publish their research with reputed journals.
