Manipal College of Dental Sciences Manipal

Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Manipal formerly known as the College of Dental Surgery, is the first self – financing dental college in the private sector of India. Established in 1965, it initially had an intake of 40 students and later increased to 100 from 1983 – 84 onwards. Since the inception of MCODS, Manipal was a significant milestone in the history of there University.

From the humble beginnings in a thatched roof structure with limited facilities, it has grown to be the top rated college in the country, according to a survey by the magazine “Outlook” in June, 2009. This feat was repeated yet again in 2010 when MCODS Manipal was ranked first among the institutes providing dental education.

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; Sharadas Residential School, Udupi; Parkala High School, Parkala; Vidya Niketan Public School, Kaup and many more.

Academically, the College of Dental Surgery, Manipal was affiliated to the Mysore University ( 1965-1980 ) and then to the Mangalore University ( 1980-1993 ) before becoming a part of the Manipal University. Today, we have more than 250 dental chairs and state-of-the-art laboratories with an intake of 100 undergraduate students and 25 postgraduate students for all specialties of dentistry.
