The Department of Community Dentistry is situated in the right wing of the DAV Dental College & Hospital. In this institution, the department is accorded an independent status with all well equipped dental units to provide basic services in various specialties. Very few institutions in this country have attached similar significance to this specialty.
The dept. of Public Health Dentistry serves as a Dental Health Education centre as well as a fully functional clinic, not only in this campus but also in this part of Himachal Pradesh through rural dental health services.
