Oral Pathology & Microbiology

Department overview:

Pathology is the basis of clinical medicine and therefore is the backbone of clinical dentistry. Knowing the pathological basis of any disease helps the clinician to arrive at a correct diagnosis and proceed with the most apt treatment.

Department of Oral Pathology deals with two subjects in BDS curriculum; Dental Anatomy, Embryology and Oral Histology as well as Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology & Microbiology. Forensic Odontology is a more recent addition into our branch.

Dental anatomy deals with basics of dentistry where the genesis, morphology, physiology, histology of the tissues and organs of head and neck are taught to first year BDS students where the student gets an idea of normal before he/she goes on to treat abnormalities. Second and third year students are taught Oral Pathology & Microbiology which deals with those abnormalities of head and neck region where the incidence and prevalence of diseases, etiopathogenesis, investigations and diagnosis of various diseases are taught to make them efficient clinicians. In today's world of disasters and crime, a dentist is incomplete without forensic knowledge. Forensic Odontology is a branch of forensic investigations which deals with identification of unidentified victims using oral & maxillofacial tissues where teeth can play a major role.
The Department was established for undergraduates in 2001 with an intake of 100 and postgraduates in 2008 with intake of 2 PG seats.
