In response to the growing demand for education in Dentistry, the Govt. Dental College Srinagar comes with a clear vision. It is a pioneering institute in this part of the country in the field of Dentistry education.
The College has very progressive and pragmatic environment developed by highly qualified and experienced teaching staff using most modern and innovative teaching aids and methodology. It emphasises real-life experience-based teaching. Its rich library is equipped with internet facilities for the use of its students and faculty. It also subscribes to several national and international journals. The Library has also interconnectivity with leading libraries like British Council library and other Medical Institutions. Such an environment is well-supported by state of the art modern equipment (both imported and indigenous) and materials and patient-simulation systems in all branches of dentistry including Prosthodontics, Restorative Dentistry, Endodontics, Periodontology, Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. The department of Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery is equipped with full-fledged surgical and after-care facilities. All these departments are ably supported by excellent diagnostic and investigative facilities in the departments of Oral Medicine and Diagnosis, Oral Radiology, Oral Pathology and Microbiology. Community programmes that are organised by the department of Community Dentistry round the year not only provide training to the students in the dental health education aspects but also generate a variety of clinical material. A rich ‘hands-on’ clinical experience to prepare the students for future independent practice is thus ensured.The Dental Council of India, which is the monitoring statutory apex body, has recognised our Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) course. The college is also starting post-graduate (M.D.S.) programme in eight disciplines i.e. Prosthodontics, Pedodontics, Orthodontics, Conservative Dentistry, Oral Pathology & Microbiology, Public Health Dentistry, Oral Medicine & Radiology and Periodontology for Academic Session 2014-15.0
