In the past two decades there have been remarkable advancements in the dental field, be it in the bio-material or the technique of placements of these materials or in the equipment. The staff members in the department strive hard to make both undergraduate and postgraduate students to be aware of recently available materials by exposing them to handle these materials and equipment in their day to day clinical practice.
The experience teaching faculty tries to use innovative Teaching-learning methodologies and integrate the knowledge with the clinical practice.
We at Krishnadevaraya College of dental sciences and hospital, Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics believe that regular CDE programs have been very useful inputs in enhancing the knowledge and clinical skills necessary for professional advancements; in addition, it provides considerable confidence in the student mindset.
The atmosphere in the department provides a sense of fulfillment in providing elements of excel in a procedure that reflect clinical skills and scientific advancements that leads to professional advancements, which has made to bag several awards and ranks in the university.
