2 lakh patients treated in GDC Srinagar
Srinagar, May 12: Government Dental College Srinagar saw a staggering number of more than 1, 82,000(one lakh and eighty two thousand) patients making a beeline for undergoing treatment for dental problems last year.
According to the Principal of the college, Dr. Riyaz Farooq, the increase in the number of patients is manifold for the last 7 years as the hospital has lived upto to the expectations in a successful manner.
“From fifty thousand in 2005, the number of patients has skyrocketed to an overwhelming number of more than 1 lakh and eighty two thousand. Besides, some of the important subjects related to dental care have been introduced here so that BDS students will have no difficulty in conversing with the latest techniques and medical advancements,” Farooq said.
He added that even though the final nod from Dental Council of India is awaited, the number of BDS seats have also been increased from 20 in 2005 to 50 this year. “Besides, we have introduced two important subjects in the post graduate course for the students to withstand competition. We want that students of our college earn marks for themselves anywhere,” he said.
“The hospital provides latest treatment facilities, besides, some surgeries, which were not performed before some years have now become a main feature of patient care here,” he added.
In a bid to improve the infrastructure in the college, Riyaz said that apart from constructing five dental hygienic classes, an auditorium and a recreation centre have been set up for the comfort of the students. “The boy’s hostel at Bemina will be thrown open in the next three months, while as work on the girls hostel is expected to be finished by next year,” Riyaz said.
