Public Health Dentistry-Activity

Introduction

"Prevention is better than cure" in every possible aspect. To reduce the suffering, disability, handicap & unnecessary expenditure for any country, the best method is prevention. The same is true for Oral Health. In a vast country like ours, to make people aware of Oral Health, education is the only primary level of prevention and if done correctly it can really work wonders towards reduction in incidence of diseases. For the same purpose the department of Community Dentistry is ever on the move. The Postgraduate training program in the specialty of Community Dentistry is available only in the state of Karnataka and ours is one of the pioneers among the 6 institutions providing the same.
