The D.Y.PATIL DENTAL SCHOOL (DYPDS) is one of five institutions in the Pune offering university-level Dentistry programmes. Besides patient care (in the context of teaching), it is also tasked with training dental students to be dentists, and with training qualified dentists to be dental specialists, dentists specializing in a particular field of dentistry and research workers carrying out scientific research in the field of dentistry.
The D.Y.PATIL DENTAL SCHOOL is therefore able to provide the full range of
dental care for patients within the region as part of the dentistry programme .
In addition, patients from all parts of the PUNE can be referred by their own
dentist for specialist dental care. Where necessary, patients can be internally
referred to an DYPDS specialist for specific treatment.
