Introduction:-
            The foundation for the successful continued growth and development of the dental profession must be based on an understanding of the needs of the community, not just the individual patient. As we progress into the new millennium, the tremendous technological advances in dentistry are over shadowed by the staggering needs of the ever-increasing sheer number of the disadvantaged population in India and their dental and overall health needs. Public Health means health of the masses, maintenance of which is our sole aim.

Below mentioned are the objectives of our department:-
1.         To acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of identifying oral health problems affecting the society, focusing on oral health problems that are prevalent among underprivileged sections.
2.         Conducting health surveys, providing health education and patient voluntary.
3.         To promote and provide preventive services at the doorstep of the masses.
