As soon the Department of Dentistry took over, Department performed its first surgery under General Anaesthesia in South Kashmir and team Dentistry is focused to increase the level of patient care, developing the Department as a State of art in all aspects and to start high quality research activity in the department. GMC is steady but surely treading the right path and certainly aiming high for excellent outcome.

Department is the leading tertiary care centre in the South Kashmir and catering the patients not only from South Kashmir but from surrounding areas like Kishtwar, Ramban, Banihal etc.
