“As is your oral pathology, is your clinical dental practice”. The oral pathology and microbiology department equips the undergraduates and postgraduates with better diagnostic skills, through a periodic programme conducted in the department- “clinical skills development program”. Archival tissues, slides and models in the museum help the student get a better insight in the field of oral pathology. The under graduates and Post graduate students are motivated to do original research with the well equipped facility in the oral pathology department. The students’ presentation from our department has brought great laurels to the institute in various scientific forums.
