Manipal College of Dental Sciences - MCDS

The Manipal College of Dental Sciences (MCODS), Manipal, formerly known as College of Dental Surgery, was the first self financing dental college in the private sector of our country. Established in the year 1965, it initially had an intake of 40 students that was later increased to 100 admissions from 1983 - 84 onwards.The inception of MCODS, Manipal heralded a significant milestone in our university. Initially the college was set up in a humble thatched roof structure with limited facilities under the able guidance of Dr. Sunder J. Vazirani, who nurtured the college during its teething stages. The institution was small then in every sense with one dental chair, forty students and a faculty comprising of clinicians (many of them retired), who came to Manipal to weave academics into the fabric of their lives. Since then, we have been steered by extremely accomplished professionals, beginning with Dr. K. L. Shourie, Dr. Kamalamma G. Pillai, Dr. S. S. Khera, Dr. K. S. Bhat, Dr. Shobha Tandon and presently Dr. Nirmala N Rao who is now at the helm.The lineage is truly stupendous and their sterling efforts in shaping this institution are even more colossal. The college has metamorphosed through time and stands tall both nationally and internationally.Moving from the original school building to the Biochemistry block and then on to what now serves as the outpatient department of the Kasturba Hospital, we are currently situated in two buildings, the clinical wing housed adjacent to the Kasturba hospital and the pre-clinical wing at the Centre for Basic Sciences.Besides this, MCODS, Manipal, has several peripheral clinics that include centres at Dr. T.M.A. Pai Hospital, Udupi; Rotary Hospital, Karkala; Hebri; Moodubelle; Saligrama; Kundapura; Brahmavar; Sharada Residential School, Udupi; Parkala High School, Parkala; Vidya Niketan Public School, Kaup and many more.
