Dental Science is an area that has gained tremendous recognition in recent years. In the past, this important facet of Medical Science was neglected in comparison with mainstream medicine. The ratio of qualified Dental Surgeons was very low as compared to other medical faculties. This prompted the K.L.E. Society to establish a Dental College, one that would serve the populace of Karnataka and neighbouring states. The Institute of Dental Sciences was setup in August 1985, within a sprawling 113 acre campus of the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College. The Institute got off to a flying start under the leadership of late Dr. S.S. Khera as the first Principal.
The Dental Council of India (the apex body) gave the approval for the BDS course in 1989, since then the institution has come a long way and gained numerous accolades in the process.
Post Graduate course in dentistry was started in the year 1990. Today it prides itself in rendering Masters in all branches of Dentistry.
All the courses are approved by the Dental Council of India. The BDS and MDS courses are affiliated to KLE Academy of Higher Education and Research (KAHER) since 2006 and batches prior to them to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore.
Today, the Institute boasts of an accomplished faculty in all departments.
The laboratories and clinics are spacious and well furnished with world class equipments and gadgets to facilitate an excellent environment that is conducive for learning and patient care.
