The department of oral and maxillofacial surgery conducted a continuing professional development program on “A Career in Implantology – Opportunities and Challenges”. The CPD program was held on 27th of December 2019. The chief guest of the program was our respected Dean Dr. Dilip G Naik. The program was aimed at equipping our college postgraduates and Interns about Implantology as a career by itself and seeking to enhance their knowledge about the continually expanding boundaries of Implantology.

The guest speaker for the program was Dr. Vivek Gaur, Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon and Oral Implantologist. He is also the promotor and director of “Simpladent Implant solutions Pt. Ltd.” He is also an alumnus of our very own Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Mangalore, and Batch of 1994. It was a privilege to have an exceptional alumnus and Implantologist as the resource person for this program. He impressed upon the interns and postgraduates the extent and scope of Implantology including the newer methods and innovations. It was well received by the students and also the staff of different departments.
