The Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics is spread over 8,500 square feet of built up area with the preclinical wing having over 2000 square feet, sufficient to accommodate a class of sixty students at a time. The Department has evolved into a vibrant and dynamic unit today, keeping abreast with the latest changes in dentistry. In terms of infrastructure, the department provides 28 dental chairs for treating patients at the under-graduate and post-graduate level. The department also has a seminar room where presentations are delivered and academic discussions are conducted. A small departmental library is present and it is adequately stocked with textbooks, which can be referred to by everybody. The pre-clinical section has a unique clinical simulation lab equipped with 60 phantom heads. Training in the second year of under graduation involves activities to be performed on teeth mounted on these phantom heads before they actually enter clinics and start working on patients in the subsequent year. Apart from training the preclinical and clinical students at the undergraduate level, the department also offers MDS course in Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics with an annual intake of 3 wards. On an average, the department handles 50-60 patients per day, of which the third and final years manage most. The treatment facilities range from the very basic amalgam to the latest in tooth coloured restorations. For patients in need of endodontic therapy, root canal treatment and endodontic surgeries are performed, when applicable.
