Karnavati School of Dentistry inks MoU with Association of Special Care Dentistry to improve dental education and delivery of ORO-Dental Healthcare

The Institute falling under Karnavati University is the only college in Western India to have Collaborated with the Association

Ahmedabad (Gujarat) : In a major leap towards improving dental education and research, the Karnavati School of Dentistry (KSD) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Association of Special Care Dentistry in a bid to improve dental education and delivery of Oro-Dental healthcare in the field of pediatric and preventive dentistry. The MoU was signed by Professor (Dr) Rohan Bhatt, director, Karnavati School of Dentistry, in the august presence of Shri Venkaiah Naidu.

KSD is part of Karnavati University – a state private university dedicated to excellence in teaching and is focused on interdisciplinary learning. KSD is the only educational institution from Western India to have signed the MoU. The MoU signing ceremony was attended by at least 1,300 pediatric dentists from across the length and breadth of India in addition to Nepal and other neighbouring countries. This is the highest recognition in the field of pediatric dentistry received by any organisation.

The programme is especially aimed at aiding children and individuals with special healthcare needs. People with special needs often require special consideration in receiving dental treatments due to their developmental or cognitive conditions. This can also include patients with Autism, Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease, Down Syndrome, or any conditions that make dental procedures more difficult. These individuals include, but are not limited to, people with developmental disabilities, complex medical problems and significant physical limitations.

Therefore it is extremely important to create awareness about the importance of oral health as part of general health. Under the MoU, KSD will extend its efforts in bridging this gap and making healthcare accessible to all.
