Rajas Dental College and Hospital (RDCH) was established in the year 1987, as a fruit of the immense, assiduous and monumental efforts of our Founder Chairman Sardar Dr. S.A. Raja. Since then our college proudly has been at the forefront of delivering quality education in India with an illustrious 34 long years of excellence in grooming young and brilliant minds in the field of dentistry and allied health sciences.
The college is affiliated to the prestigious Dr. MGR Medical University, Chennai and it effectively functions under the governing council of Selvam Educational Trust guided by the proficient leadership of our Chairman Prof. Dr. Jacob Raja – a man of clarity and innovation. The Trust also manages the Sardar Rajas College of Nursing (SRCN) and the S. A. Raja Pharmacy College, which apart from being the sister Institutions of Rajas Dental College and Hospital (RDCH) also lend research and academic interactive support through the use of common facilities like the Animal house and the Central Research Lab.
The awe inspiring campus, set in a sprawling 30 acres of sylvan settings, and nestled in the lap of the Western Ghats, is located in strategic access between two National Highways. Amidst the serene and tranquil atmosphere, the Institution provides a realm of peaceful learning, teaching and an aura of healing that relates medical science to nature. In consonance and corollary to such natural endowment the Institution keeps alive its commitment to the environment by use of renewable energy sources by having a 60KW captive solar power plant and use of wind energy as part of the the Muppandal Wind Farm (India’s largest and third largest in the world)
Since our inception in 1987 we have steadily grown into the temple of learning that today imparts post graduate and post doctoral (PhD.) education which accords impetus to further research, specialization and enlightenment. Our Postgraduate students are further aided by the global outlook and academic cooperation that Rajas Dental College and Hospital has with Universities abroad, like the Lincoln University in Malaysia, which presents seemingly limitless avenues of growth for our students’ careers.
In recognition of the Institution’s perspectives to constantly upgrade itself to standards of world class education and research, notably through Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) enabled smart interactive classrooms and in house research though the Central Research Laboratory, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has recognized, endorsed and validated these sterling efforts in 2021 through their coveted accreditation.
