Oral Medicine is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the oral health care of medically compromised patients and with the diagnosis & non-surgical management of medically related conditions affecting the oral maxillofacial region.

Oral and maxillofacial radiology is the specialty of dentistry and discipline of radiology concerned with the production and interpretation of images and data produced by all modalities of radiant energy that are used for the diagnosis and management of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral and maxillofacial region.

We are striving hard to achieve our goals of inculcating value-based teaching and provide cost effective updated quality imaging services to the community.

We have taken another step forward to improve our services by faculty development programs which include arranging conference, workshops and introducing new methodology.

Our Radiological services range from conventional intra-oral and panoramic radiography to skull and TMJ imaging also including digital radiography both intraoral (RVG and PSP) and extra oral (digital panoramic radiology). We plan for CBCT set up in the very near future. And totally like to promote research activities so that we can contribute for development of dental sciences.
