Research – Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopadedics
The Department encourages faculty and students to pursue academic research on various areas to create environment for higher learning and preparing students for presenting there observation at scientific conferences and symposiums. The faculty is highly research oriented with interests in areas like Dentofacial Orthopedics, Micro-implants, Lasers in Orthodontics, Invisible Orthodontics and newer diagnostic aids. The faculty has publications in reputed International & National scientific Journals.
