“The true sign of intelligence is not Knowledge but Imagination”- Albert Einstein.

VSPM’s Dental college and Research Centre is an institute that embodies the confluence of both knowledge and imagination. The staff and the students have made it a habit to excel in whatever they dream. They put in lot of efforts to make their dreams turn into reality. The year marked a milestone in the history of the college where Centre of Excellence were inaugurated in 6 subjects- Prosthodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Conservative and Endodontics, Periodontics, Orthodontics and Oral Medicine and Radiology. These Centres of Excellence were envisioned by the dynamic Secretary Dr. Amol Deshmukh, who felt that the college should have something over the statutory requirements. These Centre of Excellence were set up to serve the society as well as train the future PGs and those who needed to hone up their skills. The Centre of Excellence were guided by patrons in their respective fields such as Dr. J.N.Khannain Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Jacob in Maxillofacial Prosthetics, Dr. VivekHegdeinMicrodentistry, Dr. Sherry Peter in Orthodontics and Dr. Kumaraswamy in Periodontics. The management’s policy of encouraging academic and all round excellence paid rich dividends. Many staff members presented papers at international conference held in India and abroad. There were many articles which saw the light of the day by getting published in leading indexed journals both by staff and students. In the MUHS final examinations 2 students topped the university in their specialty, Dr. Chinmay Rao in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dr. Nilofer Pajnigara in Oral Medicine and Radiology while Dr. Natasha Pajnigara stood second in Periodontology.

The college and the staff members were actively involved in creating wonderful memories in the silver jubilee of the campus which saw innumerable events hosted both inmedical and dental colleges. The campus was transformed into a vibrant happening campus that had impressed the visitors. The organizing team of the Annual conference of Indian Society of Periodontology 2016, which had many events in the college,was also very well cherished. It has been 365 days of events, occasions and memories and it was a privilege to sign off 2016 with a sense ofcontention and pride.
