Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry is a subject that deals with the care and treatment of children's teeth. It is thus, an age defined specialty. It involves, but is not limited to: conselling parents regarding diet, prevention and management of dental caries, pediatric endodontics, management of traumatic injuries of teeth, preventive and interceptive orthodontics, cosmetic dental treatment using latest technology, managing gingival and periodontal diseases in infants, children and adolescents including those with special health care needs.
The department is of the firm belief that "Every child has a fundamental right to total oral health" and strives towards achieving this end.
Apart from regular out- patient consultation, the department also conducts school dental health camps providing comprehensive treatment to school children from 15 different schools. We also conduct dental health camps for institutionalised special children and medically compromised children.
