Head of Department Message

Oral biology, an enormously diverse scientific area encompasses the disciplines of biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, craniofacial biology and development. Because of the exceptional combination of tissue types and functions of the oral cavity and craniofacial complex, the field of oral biology blends fundamental scientific disciplines in unique and fascinating ways to meet the challenges of developing new and highly effective ways to manage, cure or prevent diseases and developmental defects.
Departments Introduction:
Oral Biology is a graduate program in basic sciences, integrated with the curriculum of First Professional year BDS. It comprises of Oral Histology and Tooth Morphology. This specialty is concerned with the study of the nature of the oral and craniofacial tissues along with the application of basic scientific knowledge to oral tissues in health and diseased state. It is a full year course which includes the study of embryology, growth and development, coupled with details of structure, composition and functions of cells, tissues and organs of the oral cavity.
The laboratory is fully equipped with microscopes for visualizing histological sections of oral tissues, along with tooth models to further enhance their skills on
identification of individual teeth. We encourage laboratory-based education to synergize learning and to motivate students to undertake research projects early on in their professional years to foster passion for excelling in their chosen field of specialty in order to build a successful research career in the future.
