Home / Periodontics | Faculty

Periodontology is a branch of Dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the supporting tissues of teeth. The practice of Periodontology include a variety of non surgical and surgical clinical procedures which are done regularly in this Department. We also carry out clinical, academic and research activities as a part of training. Post graduate training began in the year 1999, with two student intake per year. Public Health Dentistry Department was functioning under the umbrella of Periodontics till 2018. The department is also a recognized PhD centre under Kerala University of Health Sciences, Kerala. PhD, MDS and BDS training are held here along with other research activities.
