FACULTY OF DENTISTRY – A SHORT HISTORY
It was the dream of Dr. Rajah Sir Muthiah Chettiar to give a new thrust to the academic projects of the University by taking it closer to the community in a significant manner, and hence the idea was put forth to establish the Faculty of Medicine so that the University may make its own worthy contribution, to serve the health needs of the community with a missionary fervour. During its Golden Jubilee celebrations in December 1979, the University announced its decision to set up the Faculty of Medicine and start a Dental College under its purview as a first step. Thus the RAJAH MUTHIAH DENTAL COLLEGE was born in December 1980 with a batch of 40 students admitted to the 4-year B.D.S. (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) Programme. The permanent recognition of the Dental Council of India has now been secured after due review by the Council's inspection Commission. Twenty-two batches of students have successfully completed their B.D.S. Programme.
All undergraduates of the Rajah Muthiah Dental College undergo a five year programme leading to the degree of B.D.S. which immediately qualifies its holders to register their names in the Dentists' Register and to practice dentistry in and outside India. The College has encouraged the enrolment of women students, and about one-third of our present students are women.
The B.D.S. programme is designed to develop in the students, the skill to take care of the total oral health of the patient. In addition to lectures, teaching is conducted by means of seminars, laboratory demonstrations, practical laboratory work, and clinical practice in the hospitals.
The Rajah Muthiah Institute of Health Sciences building that houses the dental college was constructed at a cost of about Rs. 4 crores and was declared open on 28.4.1988 by His Excellency Rashtrapathi Shri R. Venkataraman, the then President of India. It accommodates both the Dental College with the Dental Hospital and the Medical Wing. Two hostels each for men and women students, staff-quarters, and other amenities have been provided in the campus. Started as a self-financing institution, the University necessarily raises adequate resources through fees that represent the economic cost of Dental Education imparted to the student of the College.
The Dental Council of India granted permission to start the M.D.S. programmes in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery from 1987-88, and Periodontics, Pedodontics and Orthodontics from 1988-89, and subsequently in Prosthodontics under the Faculty of Dentistry. Out-patient and in-patient facilities are also provided, including a modern and well equipped operation theatre.
