Dean's Message


Quality Education - Our Priority

Our Philosophy “Education with Devotion (Bhakthi) is a process of Perfection for larger good”.

The FDS beholds a strong vision to accomplish global excellence in Dental education, Research and ensure quality oral health to the society. We ensure integrated, safe and quality assured patient care inclusive of both clinical and community based programmes At FDS we consider patients, students and parents; and the community as our prime stake holders and our priority has always been to deliberate on their needs. In this regard our primary objective is to develop responsible citizens first and oral health care professionals with adequate values and competences for which state of the art infrastructure and amenities are provided. We also believe in continuous modifications and revisions based on feedback obtained from our stake holders.

At FDS we encourage validated, self-directed, independent study and technical skills development through systematic simulation laboratories. We also believe in providing students with experiential and transformative learning which is achieved through value added educational programs. Paradigm shift from “ME to WE” has immensely contributed in making FDS one of its kind.
