Welcome to the General Pathology Department of Sree Balaji Dental College and Hospital, one of the Premier Dental Institutions. Oral and maxillofacial pathology is an exciting area of dentistry that is rapidly expanding due to the high demand for additional academic research in this scientific arena. The program is designed toward students who want to not only be successful human beings, but also to be recognised as leaders in the field of dentistry, as well as play an important role in the socioeconomic system.

We are particularly interested in teaching, diagnosis, research, and community service. Our staff members are enthusiastic and work hard to instil the young generation's interest in the subject. Our department teaches Dental Anatomy, Oral Histology, Oral Pathology, and Microbiology to 180 undergraduate students in the I, II, and III BDS programmes.
