The Dental Hospital occupying the Block B of the building complex contains Academic Departments/Divisions of Oral Medicine, Dental Radiology, Oral & mxillofacial Surgery, Restorative Dentistry, Prosthetic Dentistry, Periodontology, Paedodontics, Orthodontics, Community Dentistry, Oral Pathology and General Pathology. The clinical dentistry disciplines have well equipped clinical floor areas for Student practice and outdoor/indoor patient areas for comprehensive management. All clinical floor areas for student practice are being manned by university dental nursing staff and supporting staff.

Heads of Clinical Departments and Divisions perform the administrative function where Senior Academic staff will function as consultants in the professorial units of the dental hospital. Their services include undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research activities and patient management.
