The Dept. of Oral Pathology & Microbiology is situated on the 3rd floor of Subharti Dental College. Oral Pathology is catering to diagnostic services for all the Depts. in the college as well as from outside with frequent referrals. Apart from histopathologic reports, routine blood examination and microbiological studies are undertaken. The faculty is involved in both undergraduate and post graduate teaching of Dental Histology and Oral Pathology. Cancer Detection Centre is part of the Dept. of Oral Pathology where thorough oral examination is undertaken for early detection and prevention of oral cancer. An exclusive Oral Pathology Museum has been created with adequate hard and soft tissue specimens along with clinical and microscopic details of pathologies for students and visitors to understand about the subject at a glance. There are four Laboratories in the Dept. for routine histopathology, undergraduate practicals, clinical examinations and post graduate studies. Seminar room P.G. area and faculty rooms are the other rooms in the Dept. Immunohistochemical studies have been undertaken and successfully completed.

Achievements:

Keeping in mind the high prevalence rate of oral cancer especially in this part of the country where tobacco related habits are a common occurrence, the department of oral pathology and microbiology has set up a cancer detection centre. Early recognition of this deadly disease enables a more conservative approach limiting the fatality of oral cancer to a great extent. Creating awareness amongst the general public and detecting cancer prone areas in the mouth is the basic aim which is done with the aid of some non-invasive diagnostic kits.
