The average number of patients seen in the OPD is 110 per day with 60 new and around 50 follow up patients. There are 5 OPD days per week. Approximate number of new patients is 11500/year. A wide variety of cases are seen on a day-to day basis and follow up is available. An online access to lab-reports and radiological investigations attempts to make the turn-around time per patient shorter. Besides the regular dental procedures like restorations, RCTs, oral prophylaxsis the department deals with minor surgeries like regular and complicated extractions, removal of impacted teeth, preprosthetic surgeries, biopsy and dental implants. Implant supported full mouth rehabilitation is also undertaken regularly.

Currently the Department of Dentistry also runs a specialty Orthodontic Clinic on two days in a week. On an average 25 orthodontic patients are seen during that day. Orthodontic treatment facility in the Dentistry Department was started ten months back and at present 45 patients are under active treatment with almost equal no patients enrolled in waiting register. A wide variety of cases such as Class III, Class II Div 1, Div 2 malocclusions, Impactions, Multidisciplinary cases, Skeletal malocclusions and Surgical Orthodontic re being treated. Patients of all age group from children to adolescent to young adults are seeking an opinion for orthodontic treatment. Surgical Orthodontic patients are being planned in close co-ordination with faculty from Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

In Patients: The department has adequate number of beds at present for admission and treatment of patients. Emergency beds may be allotted later when emergency services start.
