The department of Periodontology provides periodontal care to the community, where diseases of the gums and the related soft tissues are diagnosed and treated accordingly. Students are taught the basics of periodontology, learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat periodontal problems of all types. Students are also exposed to a variety of oral problems, and carry out treatment like dental scaling and polishing, deep curettage, root planing and perio surgeries.
These Departments are concerned with the evaluation of patient’s oral health condition. The primary mission of this department is to provide supervised training to the students on the complete history taking of the patient and performing thorough oral and extra oral examination.
The dental students have to undergo teaching and training in overall concepts of medicine and surgery. The curriculum covers in detail the domains having relevance to the practice of dentistry. FJDC gives great importance to this portion of the course which consumes the major portion of the 3rd year, as this is the only opportunity a dentist would have, throughout their career, to study general medicine and general surgery.
This department of FJDC is the pride of the entire dental community. The department is the hub of knowledge and clinical training. Since the establishment of the college, it has been known to be the strongest restorative department in the country. The faculty of this specialty travel all over the world to share their researches and demonstrate clinical skills.
