The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is located on the first floor of the Dental college building and consists of the OT block and the OPD section. The OPD is further divided into the UG and PG section. The OT block consists of minor OTs and Implant clinic. Fully function electrical chairs are provided in both the UG and PG clinical area. A well stocked library, seminar hall, staff rooms and internet area for the students are also part of the department. Major surgeries are carried out in the OT complex of adjoining Chhatrapati Shivaji Subharti Hospital where separate wards for male and female patients, exclusively for maxillofacial patients are available. We have a regular OPD of 70 – 100 patients daily in our department and we operate 3 times a week under G.A. Cleft related surgeries, trauma, TMJ, Orthognathic surgeries, Jaw pathologies including cancer resections and reconstruction are routinely operated here.

WORKSHOPS ORGANIZED

We have initiated a series of CME programs which we call ATOMS, an acronym for Advance Training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Under this banner we have conducted 3 national workshops at Subharti which have been thundering successes with the post-graduate students as well as practicing Oral surgeons. These have been:
