Oral Pathology & Microbiology

The Department is primarily involved in academics and research. First year students are taught Dental Anatomy & Histology where they learn how to carve the basic morphology of the teeth. Second and Third year students are taught Oral Pathology where they are taught how to diagnose various oral diseases and lesions.

Three post-graduate students join the department every year. The Post graduate students who have graduated from the department are currently working in various colleges across the country and abroad. The department regularly receives biopsy specimens from other departments in the college and from various private dentists around the college. These specimens are processed in a highly specialized laboratory.

Latest microscopes, both monocular binocular and are available for both regular work, research and post graduate thesis work. A Penta-head microscope which can be used by 5 people simultaneously is a star attraction of the department. The department has an exclusive IHC laboratory ushering the post graduate students towards extensive research work. With numerous special cases at hand, a detailed discussion is aided by these advanced modalities. Built-in grids in the microscope and special attachments aid in perfection and histopathological detailing.
