Continuing Dental Education Program (CDE) – January 12, 2016
A continuing dental education program was organized by the department of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics , Teerthanker mahaveer dental college & research centre, on 12th January, 2016. Our beloved chancellor, Shri Suresh Jain and group vice-chairman Shri Manish jain inaugurated the event and showered their blessings for its success. We were fortunate to have amongst us the two pioneers of orthodontics,Dr K Sadashiva Shetty, Principal & Head, Department of Orthodontics Bapuji dental college, davengere & Dr. Akshai Shetty, Professor, RV dental college, Bangalore. The very fact that a national orthodontic conference was held just last month in Hyderabad, inspite of that more than 150 delegates including faculty and post-graduates from various colleges of india, attended the CDE is a proof of Dr. Sadashiva Shetty’s excellence.
Dr. Sadashiva Shetty delivered a lecture on “Orthopedic Versus Orthognathic Surgery”. It was quite informative. He discussed different treatment modalities for patients of all age groups. Dr. Akshay Shetty spoke on Naso-Alveolar Moulding. He explained the pros and cons of this technique in patients with cleft lip. A Hands-on was also conducted on splint fabrication for surgical patients, which was well-received by post-graduates from different colleges who attended the CDE program.
All in all, it was a delightful experience to have such renowned speakers and to get an opportunity to learn from them. The event was appreciated by all those who attended the program. We look forward to hosting many more such educational program which benefit the students and helps them to achieve their full potential. The main driving force behind the success of the event is Dr. Mohan Gundappa, principal & Head , Dept of Endodontics, TMDCRC. His contribution and help was the main reason so much could be achieved in such short notice. Also, the efforts of the organizing committee, Dr. CH. Sudheer kumar, Dr. Mukesh kumar Dr. Abhay Jain & Dr. Akram Ansari should not go unnoticed as they were the people behind the scenes who worked towards making the event a great success.
