The institute regularly organizes various Webinars and Continuing Dental Education (CDE) programs which assist in knowledge enhancement as well as the development of clinical skills. Seminars and weekly/monthly case discussions which are purely subject-oriented and involve eminent faculty in the field enable them to learn practical procedures before doing it on patients. Apart from this, the institute also takes the initiative towards the overall personality development, addressing the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the student by celebrating various National Health Programs and also by organizing annual cultural and sports week. Adequate emphasis is laid on patient safety; early clinical exposure has been the hallmark of clinical teaching at IDS. The introduction of early patient contact (etc) in the programs is the result of the feedback received from the alumni of the college.
