Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics

The Department of Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics at the Meghna institute of Dental Sciences, was established in the year 2006. The department aims at the diagnosis & treatment of dental caries and its sequel, teeth malformations and discolorations, thereby restoring the teeth to full function in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

HOD Desk
Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics is considered as heart and soul of dentistry, where most of the patients come with pain and go out with smile on the face after immediate relief of the annoying pain. The department is endowed with a dedicated and experienced faculty, all of whom are committed to excellence in education, patient care, scholarly activity, and research. Special emphasis is also laid on attending, participating and conducting continuing professional development programs to enhance and enrich professional knowledge.
