Welcome to the esteemed Periodontics Department of SreeBalaji Dental College and Hospital, renowned as one of the premier dental institutions. Within our department, we specialize in the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases affecting the Periodontium. Our vision for the department encompasses the provision of superior healthcare services, as well as excellence in teaching and research pertaining to periodontal diseases.

We prioritize a comprehensive approach to education, encouraging students to acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical skills that they can apply in their future dental practices. Our postgraduate students are consistently presented with challenging cases to enhance their clinical proficiency and patient management abilities. The pursuit of high-quality research is a cornerstone of our department, and we emphasize adherence to the highest standards of integrity throughout the research process.

At the heart of our department lies our dedicated and student-friendly faculty, who are committed to nurturing the growth and development of our students. Moreover, we are proud to offer state-of-the-art facilities that cater to the needs of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, enabling them to excel in their academic pursuits.


Dr. Anita Balaji
Professor & Head
Department of Periodontics

The Department of Periodontics offers comprehensive didactic and clinical instruction in the field of Periodontology at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Additionally, we extend our educational offerings to practicing dentists through continuing dental education courses. Our instructional approach is tailored to accommodate the varying levels of competency exhibited by students.

In our clinical instruction, we cover a wide range of topics including periodontal examination, diagnosis, treatment planning, case presentation, communication, and various therapies. We emphasize outcome assessments for periodontal pathologies and implant therapy, addressing the needs of both healthy individuals and those with medical complications.

The didactic instruction provided encompasses an in-depth understanding of the normal periodontium at macro and microscopic levels. We explore periodontal pathology, including intra-oral lesions associated with periodontal conditions, as well as periodontal microbiology and immunology. Our curriculum also covers pain control, pharmacology relevant to periodontal treatments, cell biology, wound healing (including periodontal regeneration), minimally invasive surgical procedures, dental implantology, case management, and epidemiology and statistics specific to Periodontology.

Research methodology forms a crucial part of our educational program, equipping students with the necessary tools and skills to engage in research endeavors. Our faculty members actively participate in both basic and applied sciences research, providing invaluable instruction and guidance to students in their research pursuits. Current research areas include the study of cellular and humoral immunity in periodontal disease, the microbiology of periodontal infections, periodontal regeneration, implant procedures and outcome assessments, periodontal diagnostics, infections within the periodontium, epidemiology, proteomics & genomics, the influence of COVID-19, and emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
