Department of Science of Dental Materials

Introduction:

This basic science course mainly deals with the Auxilliary, Restorative (Polymers, Metals, Ceramics & Resins) and Preventive dental biomaterials.

Mission and Objectives:

  • The first objective is the development of an enhanced understanding of the atomic structure, physical and chemical properties of dental biomaterials and the correlation of these materials’ characteristics.
  • The second objective of the course is the development of an understanding of how dental biomaterials behave in the clinical setting and which characteristics determine their selection and clinical application.
  • This subject is dealing with not only physical, mechanical, chemical and biological properties of the materials used in clinical dentistry but also their interaction with other tissues (Biocompatibility).
  • An understanding of these properties as well as their handling is critical to the selection of dental materials in the vast field of modern dentistry.

The team & Support:

  • The department includes a team of experienced and dedicated faculty members.
  • It also has a well-equipped laboratory where students can develop basic practical skills and get acquainted with commonly used dental materials.

To meet the world class education standards and facilitate knowledge at a professional level, the department acquires various teaching strategies like lectures on multimedia, video demonstration, small group tutorials, practical demonstration & practice and routine assessment tests.
