Department Of Oral And Maxillofacial Pathology
The vision of the department is to be nationally recognized as a centre for excellence for education, patient care, research and oro-facial diagnosis.
The specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology is concerned with diagnosis and study of the causes and effects of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial region. The oral and maxillofacial pathology program begins with an intensive, instructive curriculum that provides a broad understanding of the pathophysiology and behavior of disease and a strong theoretical background in the area of student’s research interests
Clinical training in oral and maxillofacial pathology includes two components: diagnostic histopathology and direct patient care. Students receive rigorous training in oral, head and neck, and general pathology to achieve competency in oral and maxillofacial pathology.
Our prime objective is to provide histopathological diagnosis through routine staining procedures. Additionally, we perform FNAC as a preliminary screening procedure, Exfoliative Cytology procedures for routine screening and also special staining procedures. We have a well equipped Immunohistochemisty lab to obtain a confirmative and amore specific diagnosis. We perform short studies in our speciality and also forensic odontology. Topic of the month discussion and use of photo-binocular microscope (Leica Co.) with which the photomicrographs of the stained histologic sections can be captured and stored for academic interest.
Our department is associated with I BDS and III BDS graduates in the subjects of Dental Anatomy, Oral histology & Oral physiology and Oral Pathology respectively. The students will be trained in carving the morphologies of both deciduous and permanent teeth in wax blocks. They will be familiarized in using the microscope precisely which henceforth will help them in better observation and interpretation of tissue structures seen under microscope. They will be constantly monitored in their activities and motivated timely to extract/attain the best out of them.
Our department has begun Post graduation training from the year 2007. Since then, we had an intake of three students every year. So far, 12 students have been graduated from our specialty. The course duration is for 3 years during which the students will be trained to excel in all the zones/areas of the subject.
