Placement Experience :

The students of the college have high chances of setting up their own dental clinics in the future. Many of the alumni that I know from my college have set up their own clinics which are doing very well but also college provides the option for the students to go through on-campus interviews for getting good recruitments in big hospitals.

Campus Life :

The College celebrates a convocation ceremony, cultural festival, fresher parties, technical contests, sports week, and many other types of extracurricular activities. The participation of the students in these activities is beyond appreciation. The students take part with great enthusiasm and provide a good show for the faculty to watch.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Mine was a master in dental surgery, if you have any doubt they ask you to study and come, that? a good thing but it also proves that the faculty is very incompetent sometimes. Proper practicals as well as doubts resolution every week to gain more and more knowledge effectively. There are also guest lecturers once in a while.
