Department of  orthodontics intends to familiarize our undergraduate students with knowledge of craniofacial growth, development of dentition followed by diagnosis and management of dentofacial or skeletal anomalies. Our department, in line with the vision of our institute and guidelines of PMDC and UHS , facilitates students to excel in cognitive , psychomotor and affective domain of learning . Our department focuses on learning and management of

  • Skeletal growth and development of face , maxilla , mandible .
  • Development of dentition
  • Development of occlusion and associated malocclusions
  • Developmental anomalies of dentition
  • Prevention and interception of malocclusion
  • Growth modification
  • Removable appliances
  • Fixed appliances
  • Orthognathic surgery
  • Craniofacial syndromes and clefts.

Mode Of Information Transfer:-

  • Lectures
