HOD's Message

HOD Periodontics

Welcome to the Oral and Maxillofacial 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.

The faculty engages in a series of discussions with the students on a variety of subjects, allowing them to communicate and shape their thought process. We have a student mentoring programme in place to ensure that we bring out the best of all of our students.

The faculty has given numerous presentations at national and international forums, both in India and abroad; they have numerous publications in national and international journals; we serve on various journal review boards; and we are committed teachers with a scientific bent of mind who are always willing to support our students. Students and faculty have brought honour to our esteemed institution and expect to do so even more in the coming years.

Best Practices

Best Practices and Innovation

  • Education through texting ( Whats app )

    Education through texting is the preferred method of communication for today’s students. Being an easy way of communicating and spreading knowledge among students and faculties we have opted this method of practice. Initially we started this by sending texts comprising each disease/lesion every day through SMS. Recently we have modified this practice by sending contents through Whats App.

    By this innovation we are also able to share clinical and radiographic images.

  • Google class room

    Google class room is an innovative, easy and paper free mode of learning for students by grading, alloting assignments and also for one on one discussions.

    This system has been recently implemented in the department of oral pathology for undergraduates as well as postgraduates students. students can be invited to class through institutional database, private code or respective department mail id.

    Teachers can monitor the progress of the ward and can send written comments to individual students based on their performance, which make them improve on their academic activities. The students can be given in advance the PowerPoint presentations for the forthcoming class which helps in better understanding.

    After the implementation the response is extremely good from the students.

    As the present days students are well versed with the developing technology and skills implementing this way of teaching makes more interesting, time saving and a better way of assessing students.

  • State your diagnosis

    State your diagnosis is an innovative practise which we follow for undergraduate students. A photograph along with the clinical features will be displayed in the department notice board. The diagnosis of the given image shall be written on the notice board in the space provided along with the student's name and the year of study. The students coming out with correct diagnosis will be rewarded. This method encourages the students and also develops interest towards the subject.
