Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with diseases affecting the tissues and structures that surround teeth. The Department of Periodontics started at NPDCH in the year 2008 under the guidance of Prof. (Dr) Bela Dilip Dave and post graduation program started from the year 2012. From the beginning till date, the department is involved in training undergraduates by empowering them with through knowledge and skills in the field of Periodontia that would be helpful to them in the management of patients with periodontal diseases. The postgraduate program in Periodontics aims at producing a graduate competent in teaching, clinical work & research activities. All round training is provided to postgraduate students to enhance and sharpen their surgical skills by performing various Periodontal surgeries, Periodontal regenerative techniques, and Implants.
The department also actively and enthusiastically organizes various programs. One of the best examples was PerioPulse 2013, that was organized by our department on 28th September. The CDE program consisted of scientific lectures on various interesting and vital topics like “Can Periodontal Disease Adversely Affect Systemic Health”, “Periodontal Esthetics” and “Novel Approaches in Treatment of Periodontal Diseases” by eminent and renowned speakers and subject experts like Dr. Mohd Faizuddin, Dr. Archita Kikani, and Dr. Sudhir Patil respectively. In the afternoon session, Pg students and Delegates from colleges all across Gujarat presented scientific papers and Posters on different interesting topics pertaining to Periodontology and also interdisciplinary approaches in dentistry. The program was a grand success and the entire credit goes to respected dean sir, my team of dedicated staff members and my dear PG students and Interns.
The Department has always stood for its “Tradition of Excellence” and shall continue sowing its seeds of wisdom for many more years to come…
