Celebrating and encouraging scientific aptitude has always been one of our core values here at D. Y. Patil University, School of Dentistry. The desire to give flight to the hard work and aspirations of each and every student member of the Dental community and to provide a bold and elevated arena for them to showcase both their research/study as well as their public speaking skills, with the elite of the industry guiding their progress; was the ideology behind the formulation of the initiative ‘Dentovision 2019’
The two day Scientific Fest was conducted by D.Y. PATIL University, School of Dentistry on the 22nd and 23rd of January, receiving entries from both Undergraduate as well as Post Graduate students from various Dental colleges in the city. The categories included Poster Presentations and Paper Presentations for both the groups and the sessions were categorized and timed cleanly to ensure a stress-free and positive experience for all the participants.
Senior faculty members presided over these sessions, guiding the participants, selecting winners and providing valuable input on all topics Dentistry for the benefit of the participants and the audience alike. The topics of discussion and presentation ranged from the basics like ‘Dental Anomalies’ and ‘Obturating Materials’ to topics of the future like ‘Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry’ and ‘Application of Lasers and Stem Cells in Orthodontics’; all celebrating and upholding the spirit of Dentistry and Dental Educators and Professionals.
