Dean's Message

My Dear Students,

Over the last two decades, dentistry has advanced as a science, matured as an art and gained the society’s respect as a vocation. Today, we sit at the cusp of a scientific revolution in technologies that could change the very nature of this field. Advances in material science, digital printing, manufacturing, and genetics, coupled with innovative techniques, increased collaboration due to rapid advances in information technology, and out-of-the-box thinkers in our area of expertise have created vast opportunities and challenges to the future of this vocation.

Dr. D. Y. Patil Dental College and Hospital, Pimpri, Pune is a constituent college of Dr. D. Y. Patil Vidyapeeth. Here we intend to prepare students in such a way that they will not just do us proud, but outshine the previous generation.

We have some of the best teachers in the country, the most modern equipment and machinery, and fantastic facilities for your benefit. We are involved in research projects assisted by organisations such as the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Dr. D. Y. Patil University, and other equally reputed institutions. We have continuing dental education initiatives in every department, PhD programmes in all subjects, excellent patient material, an enviable collection of books in our library, multi-disciplinary training for patient management, and value-added classes on various other topics. We also provide for cultural and sports facilities and programmes for your all-round development.

At this hallowed institute, students are expected not just to learn about the science and the art of dentistry, but also about being better human beings, through discipline, good conduct, and productive use of their time and energies. I would have a great pleasure to see you graduate from here and good dentists, but I would have greater satisfaction if you also become good human beings at the same time.
