SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY




The Institution has been actively involved in organizing outreach programs to reach out to remote and resource challenged areas.



These programs aim at dental treatment and creating oral health awareness. Thousands of patients benefit from these camps and a considerable number of these beneficiaries continue treatment in the Institution as follow up patients. The Institution has taken a great initiative in providing free transport facility and free dental treatment for follow up patients which bridges the biggest challenge faced in remote rural area.

The institution works hand in hand with private organizations like Rotary Club, inner-wheel club, JCI, Lion’s Club and other NGOs to collaborate and conduct numerous outreach programs in the rural areas to improve the oral quality of life of the population and in turn improve overall social welfare of the community at large.
