The department of Pedodontics and preventive dentistry is one of the attractions of our institution with world class ambience and abides with the national and international accreditation standards.
PEDODONTICS is an age specific speciality which encompasses a variety of disciplines, techniques, procedures and skills that logically share a common basis with other specialties, but are modified, transformed and adapted to the special needs of children and adolescence and those with special health care needs.
