Dean's Message

As the Dean of Sibar Institute of Dental Sciences I am delighted to welcome you to the SIDS website.

SIDS is recognized by Dental Council of India and Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India and affiliated to Dr. N.T.R University of Health Sciences, one of the finest universities in Health Education. SIDS is the first choice for graduate and post graduate dental education for those who are looking for quality education and training.

Leaders of the profession – outstanding clinicians, lecturers and professors of national and international repute – are on the faculty of the SIDS. Few are in the executive committee of international and national professional bodies, editors of various dental journals and members of Board of Studies of the University. Under the tutelage of highly trained and productive professors, the student acquires a solid foundation in the biomedical sciences. This knowledge forms the basis for understanding the wide variety of diseases that a dentist must diagnose and treat. Skillful and experienced clinical lecturers/professors guide the student in acquiring technical skills and developing clinical judgement. Instructors with qualifications in the basic and clinical sciences assist the student in applying basic science knowledge to clinical problems. This integrated system of instruction results in a broadly trained clinician with a strong biomedical background.

Situated very near to Guntur city, the college has the benefit of a large pool of patients who seek dental treatment at its clinics. Additional training in patient care is gained during assignments at affiliated hospitals.

Since its foundation, SIDS has been committed to excellence in education, patient care, research, and community service. With each incoming class we rededicate ourselves to the achievement of these goals. I look forward to you sharing in our success.

We will ensure that our activities are carried out ethically and to the highest standards.
