apuji Educational Association is one of the oldest and famed association running Educational Institutions in Davangere, Karnataka, India. This small seed sown in 1958 has now grown into a giant tree with more than 50 Institutions under its arms. These Institutions has carved a niche for themselves attracting students not only from India but across the globe. Dr. Shamanur Shivashankarappa Chairman Bapuji Dental College & Hospital, Davangere, Karnataka, India



Fired by the zeal to create world class institutions, Bapuji Dental College was founded in the year 1979 by Bapuji Educational Association. This college has been one of the most vibrant and dynamic institution in the field of dental education. It has nurtured thousands of dentists to reach the zenith of their profession. Every day brings forth new discoveries and therefore an exponential increase in knowledge is inevitable. The college makes every effort to provide the required technology to assist students to keep abreast with the latest developments in the dental field to carve their own niche in the dental society. An exotic discovery of this era is dental implants. Implant dentistry has grown tremendously in the past 25 years. From Branemark's era, oral implantology has grown to become one of the most lucrative specialities in dentistry and now is in the pinnacle of dental innovations. Hence there is a need to train more and more dentists in the field of implantology. In view of this, Bapuji dental college has started Bapuji oral implantology course to provide delegates with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to start their implant career within their existing general dental practice. With so many dentists becoming involved in implant dentistry, the emphasis must now shift towards looking at the quality of training and education available. The dental journals often have several advertisements for a variety of courses and we all receive flyers through the post from a number of commercially run events. For the inexperienced clinician, this presents a real dilemma with very little Dr. K. Sadashiva Shetty guidance as to which type of course to choose. Principal Implant dentistry is unavoidably linked with the implant industry due to Bapuji Dental College & Hospital the individual design features and subtle differences between different Davangere, Karnataka, India systems. Fortunately, the main companies involved generally take the Course Chairman responsibility for basic system training seriously with courses teaching Bapuji Oral Implantology Course the 'nuts and bolts' on offer throughout the year. The question is 'do they alone offer appropriate implant training?' Unfortunately at the moment, for many dentists, the answer is 'no'.The shorter one and twoday courses can only cover a small aspect of the subject and to expect anything more would be wrong. Care needs to be taken by the prospective applicant to ensure that a course will meet their individual training needs. A course that somehow integrates evidence based clinical practice with a structured, literature-based teaching is probably the best model of training for many clinicians. Keeping all this pitfalls in mind Bapuji Oral implantology course has been designed to give a holistic training to all dentists enrolling for the course. The implantology activities at the Bapuji dental college have formed a centre of excellence for research, education and treatment. The state of the art Implant center at Bapuji Dental college offers the best possible clinical education complemented by opportunities in research and community service.
