In over a decade our premier institute has accomplished many enviable achievements. It is one among the few private dental colleges in the state to provide a postgraduate dental degree. This institution has evolved to be a pioneer dental college among the self-financing colleges in delivering quality education. Scholastic teaching instills the desire for learning which enables the students to think reasonably and make them self-sufficient. Unlike the stereotypical clinical training, our faculty guide, assist and train them to perfection and make them pledge the ethical and moral values of professional conduct. A plethora of diverse cases in the college outpatient department makes the student confident enough for diagnosing and rendering correct treatments.
An Amiable environment in the campus makes learning a pleasant experience for the students. Hostel facilities within the campus for boys and girls safeguard the privacy of students. Disciplinary authorities in the institution prevent any unpleasant events of ragging and monitor the conduct of each student periodically.
Excellence and good will require commitment, determination, and perseverance. Our faculties abide by these virtues to provide the best professional environment that is updated and adapted to the changing trends of this ever-demanding profession. We at KMCT Dental College are committed and pledged to provide our students with all that is instrumental in making them a good professional and human being. We pray to God and seek the cooperation from all concerned in our efforts to make this a truly premier dental education institution.
