Community Outreach program

The Community Outreach program  is a main pillar in teaching and training medical and dental students. The programme creates a positive effect and enhances the social responsibility of the students. Outreach programs help to install and expand their personal and professional insights. It helps them to overcome cultural barriers by working in a variety of cultural and community environments. Thus making them committed and empathetic oral health professionals.

With this we have an oral health Screening and treatment programme for the general community, special groups like children in orphan homes, old age homes and other rehabilitation centers. To cater to this we have a fully equipped mobile dental unit that facilitates the provision of community dental services to urban and rural areas camps are conducted on a regular basis.
