The college is cleaned and disinfected regularly. The classroom consists of a board as well as a projector and has ACs. The college has a separate library that is open on weekdays and the campus has one which is open 24/7. The labs are well-equipped and well maintained. Mess is available for boys and girls. The meal is good. Academics
Teaching is very professional and of good quality. The curriculum is updated regularly as changes are made and students are informed and kept updated about the same. Students here are well trained as the patient flow is good. Placements
There are no placements in dental colleges but the training is good that the graduated students are ready to treat patients and they start their clinics or they further try for post-graduation. College also offers post-graduation courses. Value-for-money
Fees for the open category are almost 5 Lacs. There is a scholarship scheme by the university itself for SBC and other category students. Campus Life
The campus is so beautiful filled with trees and good people. The students are engaged in sports and cultural activities here and students and staff both participate actively. This sports and cultural competition not only gives break from routine academics but also creates a good bond between staff and the students. The location is good and safe and yes it can handle emergencies as we have hospitals and medical colleges nearby.
