This is the department which receives the patient initially as he walks into the dental college for treatment . Their primary function is the listen to patient symptoms ( eg. dental pain ) and do a basic examination and if required prescribe medication. Based on the primary checkup they also make a treatment plan or sequel for the patient ,and subsequently refer he/she to the needful departments for specialized treatments.

The Radiology wing of this department receives requests for dental X rays ( IOPA X RAY ) and Full Jaw X rays ( OPG X RAY ) from various departments of the college. They take and process these xrays , and also primarily describe or report these xrays. The department is planning to install the Cone Beam Computed Tomography Machine ( CBCT Machine ) very soon in the future.

Apart from formulating a treatment sequel for the patient , they also specialize in diagnosing some disorders of the oral cavity like ulcers , precancerous lesions , red & white lesions , salivary gland disorders , autoimmune disorders affecting oral cavity. They can individually diagnose and treat conditions of the oral cavity and provide medical treatment for them.
