H.O.D.'S Foreword

The experience of teaching, administration and clinical practice for last thirty years has dawned upon me, the realisation of understanding the patients needs and various modalities available for treatment. Armed with evidence based data from practical experience from day to day clinical exposure and various newer modalities available, I feel I have an opportunity to newly share my knowledge and experience in training students, as a way of rendering better orthodontic services to society. Today we at Department of Orthodontics have the energy of youth, the experience of senior staff along with the best gadgets and backing of management for research. I am sure the combined efforts from all of us together will take our department to new heights!
