In its short but very significant nineteen years, Mar Baselios Dental College has always kept its pace with time. Conducting scientific proceedings and publishing its contents have become routine and seems beneficial for updating the knowledge. Orthognathic surgery- a panacea for the disfigurement has already evolved as a speciality and expanding its wings. Centre for Craniofacial and Aesthetic surgery is a brainchild of this reputed institution. It is devoted to correction of craniofacial deformities such as cleft lip and palate, craniofacial syndromes like crouzon’s, Aperts’s and other facial deformities like ankylosis of TMJ and facial asymmetries.
