DEPARTMENT OF DENTISTRY

The Department of Dentistry was established in the year 2009 with one ‘Medical and Health Officer – Dentistry’ Dr. Rajiv Gogoi. In February 2011, Dr. Dhiraj Kumar Talukdar took over charge as Professor & Head of Department and was running the department smoothly till February 2021.

From the time of inception, the department used to see an average of 20-25 patients per day which grew to 40-60 patients per day at present with a monthly average of 1200-1800 patients. Over the period, the department evolved in terms of technological advancements with adoption of newer instruments and sophisticated machines.

Presently, the department provides regular OPD services with services ranging from preventive care, restorative treatment, surgical and oral rehabilitative treatment to counseling and management of OSMF patients. Apart from OPD services, the department has two reserved beds in the ward for any in-hospital treatment and care.

Besides these services, the faculties of the department conduct periodic theory classes related to oral and dental diseases for UG students. The faculties also take part in CMEs, webinars, online training in different advanced dental treatment modalities and care.
