The department is involved in teaching Undergraduate students of I BDS, II BDS & III BDS in the subjects of Oral Anatomy & Histology and Oral Pathology & Microbiology respectively. In Oral Anatomy & Histology, theory classes are taken covering all the basic aspects and practical’s are dealt with respect to the normal histology slides related to tooth development and various other Oro-facial structures, identification of normal morphology and different dentitions of human teeth with the help of casts and specimens. It is also related with carving of all permanent teeth and theory knowledge of all deciduous teeth.
In Oral Pathology, theory classes are taken covering all the basic aspects of oral pathology and microbiology and forensic odontology and practical classes are taken wherein students are trained to identify the pathology slides, casts and specimens of Oral diseases. Students are also to trained to give seminars, slide discussion and also to identify the pathology in patients and update the same to the department faculty for query discussion.
The students are expected to present scientific data pertaining to the field, in conferences both as poster and verbal presentations and to take part in group discussions etc.
