Pune, 9th November 2021: The Department of Dental Surgery at Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Pune hosted a dental update on “Controversies and Panacea in Oral Health Sciences Contemporary Perspective” on 08th and 09th November 2021. 

It was a unique conference, designed in the history of this department for the first time to be hosted on a hybrid mode which was attended online by delegates throughout the country and physically by local delegates. 

The two-day event featured service speakers of the Army Dental Corps and distinguished faculty from dental colleges from various parts of the country who conducted interactive sessions on “Controversies and Panacea in Oral Health Sciences Contemporary Perspective”.

The chief guest for the dental update was Lt Gen NK Sahoo, VSM, DGDS & Col Commandant Army Dental Corps who inaugurated the 13th National Dental Update. Gen Sahoo stressed upon the importance of organising such programmes as it gives great opportunities for the serving officers, clinicians and academicians to share their knowledge and experiences with each other which in turn paves the way for knowledge enhancement to benefit the patient clientele.

The Sixth Edition of the Tuesday Dental Clinics, a compilation of cases presented in the clinical meetings, the first Edition of Speciality Trained Nursing Assistant Manual (STNA) Manual and a Souvenir were released by the dignitaries on the occasion.

Brig Mulk Raj Oration lecture to honour the first Departmental Head was delivered by Dr Pramod Subhas an eminent maxillofacial surgeon.

The highlight of the conference was an e-poster completion, Quiz completion and a symposium conducted by the Residents of the Department.

Delegates across the country attended the conference, apart from the faculty and students of AFMC. The attendees included mainly budding specialists, faculty members of various dental colleges and service delegates of the Army Dental Corps. They showed keen enthusiasm in participating in the new format.
