Clinical Exposure: From Simulation Labs to Real-World Practice

Early Clinical Exposure is a methodology which encourages exposure of dental students to patients (actual human contact) as early as the first year of dental education, in a social or clinical context that adds on to their textbook learning of health, illness or disease. At PMS College of Dental Sciences and Research, we provide our students with a wide clinical exposure from simulation labs and hands-on patient interaction and dental practice. The clinical exposure is designed to enrich the learning and experience of the students and equip them with tools to move on to the next phase of their study or careers.

Research Opportunities: Shaping Innovators in Dentistry

Research is and should be a mandatory part of dentistry. The research undertaken in biosciences and advancements in technology have improved our treatment of chronic oral diseases such as periodontal diseases and dental caries, development of precision diagnostics, and the discovery of new therapeutic biomarkers. PMS College of Dental Sciences and Research has been recognized as a Scientific Industrial Research Organization by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Government of India for our dedication to scientific research. The Kerala Start-Up Mission (KSUM) under Government of Kerala has also approved our Institution as an innovative and entrepreneurship driven development centre for our contributions towards innovation and research in oral health care.
