Maxillofacial Surgery
The Department of Oral and maxillofacial surgery at Sri Balaji Dental College is a speciality department, well equipped with state of the art facilities. It caters to a broad spectrum of patients ranging from newborns with clefts and craniofacial deformities, to patients who have different kinds of cysts and tumors, and also facial trauma surgeries which form the crucial cases as we are also associated with a hospital which is located on a major highway.

The department has a very well equipped Minor oral surgery unit capable of dealing with emergencies. Impactions, surgical excisions of small cysts, handling of space infections and biopsies are meticulously done with all precautions following the highest standards of sterilization and asepsis so that even the under graduates are aware of the protocols that should follow once they step into the operation theatres.

We also have an excellent backing from the department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Sri Balaji Dental College and in constant consultation and discussions with them we formulate a treatment plan for all the patients who might also require surgical interventions. They are identified early and before the treatment starts a panel discussion takes place to make sure that the treatment plan is thoroughly discussed and the patient is explained about the need of any such procedure going forwards.

Bhaskara medical college is a sister institute to which we are affiliated and they have an emergency unit which keeps us posted about the facial trauma cases that come in their unit. In consultation with the surgeons and the radiologists a proper treatment plan is formulated for all these patients. Primary assessment is done by our interns under the guidance of a staff who is always posted in the emergency unit.

The Radilology department also has a state of the art MRI and CT work station which makes it easier for us to assess the nature of injury that these patients step in with.

The Department currently imparts UG curriculum for III BDS, IV BDS students along with Interns and PG curriculum for MDS students as prescribed by KNR University of Health Sciences, Telangana, in keeping with the norms laid down by the Dental Council of India.
