The placement of this subject is in 3rd year, semester-VI, of BS-DCP (Dental Hygiene). Preventive Dentistry deals with the maintenance and promotion of overall health status and prevention from diseased status at every level. This course has been divided into two parts, where lectures and practical work will be covered over a period of 4 months for each of the two courses in the semester- VI and later similar portion will be covered in semester-VII.
