H.O.D.'S Foreword

I have non fulfilling hunger for knowledge in the field of Orthodontics. Over the years, this attitude has generally served me well in assessing the “latest and best” in orthodontics. With this attitude I serve the Department of Orthodontics at Swargiya Dadasaheb Kalmegh Smruti Dental College, Nagpur. The Department of Orthodontics was established in the year 2006 with affiliation to MUHS Nasik. The Department has blossomed from a tiny seed to a FRUIT LADDEN TREE of KNOWLEDGE. All the teaching faculties are learned and experienced in their respective field. They are being invited as keynote speakers, external examiners, paper setters in various universities and institutes.
