Department Of Pediatric And Preventive Dentistry Back to Menu

The science of Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry is focused towards delivering effective and efficient Dental care for children and adolescents while instilling a positive Dental attitude.

The science nests broadly on the application of child psychology, behavior management and treatment of both normal and special children. Children being as unpredictable and incredible as mother nature, they need the loving care of Pedodontists.

The various treatments carried out in the department are- restorations, extractions, root canal treatment, habit-breaking appliances, space maintainers, space regainers, esthetic crowns, mixed dentition orthodontics, minor surgical procedures for children upto 14 years of age.

The treatment modalities are aimed at preserving and restoring the integrity of the arches and the dento-facial complex.

Here, the final BDS students are trained with 40 hours of theory and 240 hours of clinical exposure as per the MGR UNIVERSITY guidelines and DCI norms.

The interns are posted on a rota basis for a month or more of clinical exposure , seminars and group discussions in managing children. Off late, the department has gained a child-friendly atmosphere with wall paintings and play area plus comfortable seating arrangement.

The future plans are to do more research work in mixed dentition orthodontics, caries assessment tool development and caries control.
