KMCT Dental Clinic
In anticipation of an upcoming dental college, a fully fledged dental clinic was started in January 2005 with six specialities.
• Oral Medicine and Radiology
• Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
• Maxillofacial Prosthodontics and Implantology
• Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics
Now we take pride in having a Dental Clinic run by an excellent and committed team of reputed faculty members, specialist doctors and guidance from senior eminent professors from different fields. This endures a steady flow of patients which is absolutely vital for our students training.
In addition to the different branches of dentistry, a major component in the first year of BDS are the basic three sciences namely Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry, integration of these sciences are an absolute must for a student to learn and understand the human body's structure constitution functioning.
Each and every department of the college is well poised to mould each student in to a finely tuned dental surgeon who will be able to ultimately apply the knowledge of dentistry in the best interest of the patient and community. This will ensure that they will maintain a high standard of professional ethics. In addition to basic clinical training a definite thrust will be on the research and development of new aspects of dentistry.
Each graduate student of this institution will be guided by eminent faculty right from honing sharp diagnostic and treatment skills and at the same time importance will be given on the sociological aspects of health particularly oral health care for the different sections of society.
Oral Medicine and Radiology

High quality equipment slides, charts, models are the facilities provided in the histology Lab. Periodic seminars and group discussions are conducted in order to improve the learning skills so that it can be applied in the clinical scenario.
This is one of the basic sciences covered in the first year BDS. Physiology is the study of dynamic inter-relationship among different tissues and organs which is mostly carried out the organism level. The knowledge of physiology is important to appreciate the role of mechanism that control bodily functions. Clinical physiology and applied physiology is a must in the curriculum. This department has two main sections
• Experimental Physiology
State of art equipment and experienced faculty facilitate good training of the students.
Biochemistry deals with the chemical basis of life namely Metabolism, Nutrition, Homeostasis Mechanism, Molecular Biology and Clinical Biochemistry. The study of the Biochemistry is essential to understand the basic functions of the body. It is necessary to give scientific basis for disease and is useful for the treatment and Prognosis. At the end of the first year training the student will attain the ability to biochemically analyse the basis of life and disease.
Each department is headed by eminent professors and senior experienced staff members.
