The department of oral and maxillofacial surgery showcased it 6th edition of Edify on the 1st of August.The theme of the edify was activity based learning. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a speciality in dentistry which requires extensive understanding of the anatomy and precise surgical skills to treat patients.Students find it difficult to understand certain treatment concepts as all they see in the textbooks are two-dimensional in presentation. We prepare study models which enable the students to learn the procedure by performing them on these models. We teach them concepts of cyst treatment which are multiple and require a certain level of understanding.Likewise, trans-alveolar extractions and fracture reduction and fixation procedures are also demonstrated on models for easy understanding. Dr.R.N.Balakrishna was also awarded the workaholic award by our Dr.Deepak Nallasamy, Director of Academics and our Dr.Sheeja Varghese, Dean, Saveetha Dental College.
