Session 1:  

Dentistry and dental histology: Dentistry is largely based on maintaining proper oral health, but is also an aesthetically focused practice. A large part of dentistry involves restoring teeth and making a smile beautiful, one that the patient is happy to show to others. Dentistry also encompasses the treatment and correction of malformation of the jaws, misalignment of the teeth, and birth anomalies of the oral cavity such as cleft palate. General practice dentistry includes manyspecialities and subspecialities,including orthodontics and dental orthopedics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, prosthodontics, oral maxillofacial pathology, endodontics etc. Dental histology and embryology touches on the development and growth of teeth and oral cavities, as well as the structure and development of salivary glands and more. The study of histology mainly focus on the development and structure of cells and tissues, the stages of tooth development and maturation, the different components of a tissue, like cells, intercellular substance and tissue fluids, and the different components of a human tooth, like enamel, dentin, dental pulp and cementum.

Sessions 2:

Dentofacial Orthopedics: Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches: the maxilla and the mandible. The practice of this specialty includes diagnosis, prevention, interception, and correction of malocclusion and other abnormalities of the developing or mature or o facial structures. There are multiple methods for adjusting malocclusion, depending on the needs of the individual patient. In growing patients there are more options for treating skeletal discrepancies, either promoting or restricting growth using functional appliances, orthodontic headgear or a reverse pull face mask. Most orthodontic work is started during the early permanent dentition stage before skeletal growth is completed. If skeletal growth has completed, Orthognatic surgery can be a choice. Extraction of teeth can be required in some cases to compensate with the orthodontic treatment. Dentofacial orthopedic is a dentist who has done specialization in the orthodontics and earns special distinction and completed two to three years in orthodontic   residency program. Children’s are the best candidate for dentofacial orthopedic treatment, but it is also used to treat adults.

Sessions 3:

Cosmetic Dentistry: A beautiful smile is a key for making long lasting impressions. Cosmetic dentistry not only improves the look of the smile, but it can also enhance the overall dental health. Cosmetic dentistry is for the most part used to allude to any dental work that enhances the appearance of teeth, gums or potentially chomp. It essentially concentrates on change dental surface in shading, position, shape, size, arrangement and general grin appearance.

Sessions 4:

Amalgam separators and west control management system: Amalgam is one of the most common materials that are used to fill the cavaties,it is been used in this dental industry for more than 150 years. It is a mixture of metals contains liquid mercury (elemental) and a powered alloy composition of mercury. 50 % of this amalgam is elemental mercury by weight (approx.).This elemental mercury can react and bind together with silver/copper etc. to from an amalgam. The study shows that less than 1% of mercury is released in the environment by dental exposure. Amalgam separators are devices that are specially designed for separating the amalgam particles entering in the sewage systems by sedimentation, filtration and centrifugation or combing these three together.Dentists are encouraged to follow dental waste management practices for disposal and handling of amalgam. The EPA (Enviromental Protection Agent) requires amalgam separators to achieve at least 95% removal efficiency and  final rule on amalgam separators is effective from July 14 2017.

Sessions 5:

Genetics and oral Health: Dental carries is the most common problem in adults and children.30 to 60% of carries phenotypic variation in secondary is responsible for genes.Periodontal diseases are heterogeneous type of disease affected 50 billion people worldwide.This disease is inherited as X linked dominant trait. Oral cancer also due to the mutation in proto-onco gene (polymorphism in GST gene: GSTMI and GSTTI OF CYP) or mutation in tumour suppressor lead to loss of heterozygosity and fail to repair. Study shows that dental development for most of the part is genetically determined and plays an important role in malocclusion. Cleft lip /palate are associated with chromosomal disorders or multifactorial in origin. The study shows that 70% cases are non syndromic and 30% are related to some syndromes (apert  syndrome, cleidocranial dystosis, treacher collins syndrome etc.). This can be autosomal dominant,autosomal recessive, or X linked. Siblings of affected child are a risk of 30 times more than general population.

Sessions 6:

HIV infection on oral health: The united Nation’s programme on HIV/AIDS estimates that over 40 milion people are living with HIV/AIDS (UNIADS.2006). An estimated over 15,000 new infections occur each day, with more than 95 % is in developing countries and 24 million of these are in Africa. Sub–Saharan Africa currently have 28.5 million (70%) individual infected. People living with HIV/AIDS have many common oral health problems (e.g. Dental decay and cavity) with other oral problems that are directly related to HIV infection. About 32 to 46% of people (HIV infected) will have one major oral health problem like bacterial,viral and fungal infections as well as cancer and ulcers with their disease.There are some common HIV related oral conditions are xerostomia,candidiasis,oral hairy leukoplakia and periodontal diseases such as linear gingival erythema and necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis, Kaposi’s sarcoma, human papilloma virus-associated warts, and ulcerative conditions including herpes simplex virus lesions, recurrent aphthous ulcers, and neutropenic ulcers.

Sessions 7:

Oral pathology and oncology: Oral pathology is one of the branch of dentistry and discipline of pathology that deals with the nature, identification, and management of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions (the mouth and jaw areas). The practice of oral pathology includes research and diagnosis of diseases using clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, or other examination. Oral cancer is one of the largest groups of cancers that are included tongue, throat, sinuses, and floor of the mouth. Various types of oral cancers are inclusive of squamous of cell carcinoma, verrucous carcinoma, minor salivary gland carcinomas, lymphomas, and others. The use of tobacco includes smokeless tobacco, HIV induced cancer and alcohol consumption these are the major factors that drive the oral cancer rapidly. According to the cancer research center in UK globally over 3, 00,000 persons are diagnosed with oral cancer.

Sessions 8:

Ethno dentistry: According to WHO 80% of the population is still depended on plant medicine as their primary source of their medicine. Using of medical plant as medicine in dental industry is called ethno dentistry. Majority of the herbs are used as natural tooth brush, some plants are used for management of gum bleeding, tooth ache, sores in mouth and bad breath.The most frequently used part of plants for medicinal preparations are their leaves, as well as the other parts (bark, fruit, seed, flower, stems, and roots). The preparation mode for dental treatment in descending order is decoction,infuse, maceration, juices, dishes, pastes, as well as fresh plants and the noted mode of use it is drinking/gargling, rubbing into the gums, inserting into the tooth cavity, inhalation, etc.

Sessions 9:

Laser and oral maxillofacial radiology: Dentists use laser treatment inside the mouth for removing the overgrown tissues, for reshaping the gum, or for teeth whitening. Laser treatment are highly effective depend on the dentist ability to control the exposure time and laser output. The process has many advantages such as less pain after the post-operative surgery, less bleeding and morbidity along with the decreased  usage of anaesthesia and shorter procedure time. Oral and maxillofacial radiology is the speciality of dentistry and discipline of radiology concerned with the production and interpretation of radiographic images, including CT and MRI scans that are used for the diagnosis and management of diseases disorders and conditions of the mouth, face and jaws. An oral and maxillofacial radiologist is a dentist who studies and interprets radiographic images for conditioning affecting the head, neck, face and jaws.

Sessions 10:

Periodontics: Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the gum tissue and bone supporting the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss. Research has also shown that periodontal disease is associated with other chronic inflammatory diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. According to the studies 47.2 percent, or 64.7 million American adults, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease. A periodontics is a dentist who specializes in the prevention; diagnosis and the treatment of periodontal disease. They treat cases from mild gingivitis to wide range of treatments such as scaling and root planning (the cleaning of infected root surfaces), root surface debridement (the removal of damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (the reversal of lost bone and tissue).

Sessions 11:

Antibiotic prophylaxes: Antibiotic prophylaxis is the use of antibiotic before any surgery or dental procedure for the prevention of bacterial infection.It is recommended before any dental procedure for two groups of patients-those with heart conditions that may predispose them to infective endocarditis and those who have a prosthetic joint(s) and may be risk for developing haematogenous infections at the site of prosthetic. Antimicrobial prophylaxis (AP) can be used effectively to prevent infection, but its use should be limited to specific, well-accepted indications to avoid excess cost, toxicity, and antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobial prophylaxis may be considered primary (prevention of an initial infection) or secondary (prevention of the recurrence or reactivation of an infection), or it may also be administered to prevent infection by eliminating a colonizing organism.

Sessions 12:

Forensic Dentistry or Odontology: Odontologists are dentists who used their knowledge for the identification of unknown remains and trace bite marks to a specific individual. Forensic odontology is one kind of science that is used for proper handling, examination and evaluation of dental evidence, which will be presented in the interest of justice. The evidence that can derive from the teeth are-Identification of human remains from dental records and assisting at location of mass disaster, gender identification, age estimation of both (the living and the deceased), bite marks analysis etc.

Dentistry is the branch of science devoted for maintenance and treatment of teeth, gums, and other soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity and adjacent structures. Dental market is bifurcated into two segments: dental consumables and dental equipment’s. Dental consumables represent the larger segment of the dental care industry and the these includes crowns/bridges, implants, orthodontics, impressive materials, composites, endodontic, adhesives and cements, while the dental equipment segment is composed of large equipment, such as autoclaves, sterilizers and chairs.Through education, diagnosis and treatments,dentists provide the public with an essential health care service and  researches  are  continuous to showing  that the link between oral health and general health is strong. Today's dentists do more than drill and fill patients' teeth; they perform a wide variety of procedures and functions .The number and range of services that dentists provide have steadily grown. 

Global Dental Market: Global Dental Market is projected to cross US$ 60 Billion mark by the year 2024 due to growing demand for better oral hygiene services and rising disposable income of people globally. Mounting awareness of the importance oral hygiene i.e. keeping the mouth and teeth clean; and can prevent cavities, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), and bad breath is one of the major factors which helps to reach the global dental market to its new glory in the coming future. Growth in the market can primarily be attributed to factors such as the rapid growth of ageing population, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry and growing incidence of dental caries and other periodontal diseases.
