The Department of Public Health Dentistry is dedicated to advancing oral health in the National Capital Region (NCR) by championing a preventive approach. Our mission, "Prevention Pays! We work to improve the health of the people in the NCR by preventing dental illness, promoting healthy choices, and protecting oral health," encapsulates our commitment to proactive healthcare. In the final year of the BDS program, our students gain comprehensive knowledge through lectures, clinical teaching, and participation in oral health screening and treatment camps. Practical understanding of epidemiology is facilitated through surveys and indices, and students actively engage in community oral health promotion via health talks and street plays.

A noteworthy initiative is the Research Innovation Catalyst (RIC) Course, empowering BDS students with research and development skills. Weekly lectures on research methodology, dedicated mentors for research projects, and ICMR project applications are integral components of this transformative course.

The Department operates three satellite centers in Faridabad, including Sidhata Ashram and Anangpur village, ensuring widespread outreach.Our commitment to community welfare is evident through a multitude of outreach activities, including dental camps, oral health awareness initiatives, street plays, rallies, health melas, and the distribution of oral hygiene kits. Collaborations with various organizations such as SOS Village, NTPC, NHPC, and NGOs like Muskan, SHEOWS, Prayas, and Dr. OP Bhalla Foundation amplify our impact.

To date, the department has screened over 1 lakh individuals and treated more than 10,000 patients, extending oral health services to approximately 450 villages, residential areas, schools, and institutions in and around Faridabad. The Department of Public Health Dentistry remains committed to fortifying its community engagement and fostering community-oriented programs for sustained impact.
