Public Health Dentistry

The Department of Preventive and Community Dentistry is dedicated to training graduate and undergraduate students in public health dentistry to work within interdisciplinary teams to conduct investigations on the risk factors for oral disease, their relation to systemic disease, and on the use of oral epidemiological methods to study health outcomes of dental services and oral health policy.

Preventive and Community Dentistry is a subject designed to help the student to explore professional ethics as they relate to dentist’s relationships to peers, patients and the community. Students attend dental camps and perform initial screening examinations. They are sensitised to specific needs of a variety of patient populations.
