Cocurricular and Extracurricular Activities
At IDS we aim to develop Dentists who are physically fit, mentally sound, emotionally balanced, intellectually sharp, and socially well adjusted. Keeping this in our mind we design our students’ planners in such as way that these characteristics are imbibed into the personality of the students as they advance in the educational journey year after year, and when are graduated they are complete transformative assets for the society. In addition to this, we understand the expectations and trust of the parents in us.
