What Our Patients Are Saying

I thank the management, staff and students of PMS Dental College for organising a CDE on “From Research to Publication”. The program was well organised and appreciate the hospitality provided. A special mention to the staff of Public Health Dentistry for taken the lead in organising the session. I believe the talk was useful and would appreciate honest feedback on the same.

Today there are 300 + dental colleges in India. Visit to PMS College was very unique for me. One Dr Thaha Chairman is a dentist and this is one of the few in I say first in 10 colleges. The teaching system is beyond DCI requirement. This shows that administration is more interested to educate student and then to earn. Departments are well equipped, good staff and lots of patients so good experience to students. I am very impressed with not only teaching staff attitude but non-teaching staff it was just great. Overall, all credit goes to the top person its Dr Thaha. My Best wishes to PMS College and hope & pray they are in the first five dental college in this country.
