Orthodontics is a subject that cannot be taught just by thee book because it requires knowledge of the entire anatomy, physiology and biochemistry to understand the movement of tooth! We at KSD, get to the very basics of the subject so that our students have a thorough knowledge of how the dentofacial anatomy works. Interactive sessions like seminars, journal club, case presentations, discussion and demonstrations are routinely conducted. The department is a family and that’s how we perceive it.
