The fact that dentistry is so much beyond the Oral Cavity is highlighted by the scope of this department. It’s not all blood and gore though – in the department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, where delicate aesthetic jaw correction procedures are also undertaken, Dr.Jayavelu, a much experienced surgeon and Head of the Department comments..” wisdom teeth does not give you wisdom.. mostly only trouble. So get them out if they torment you”!
Having done his graduation and Post-graduation from the much acclaimed Government Dental College, Chennai, Dr.Jayavelu has published several papers in state and national conferences and has also chaired several scientific sessions in conferences. He is also a life member of the prestigious Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons of India (AOMSI) and the Indian Dental Association(IDA).
This department also operates on patients afflicted with head and neck tumors and fractures incurred in accidents. The nature of procedures demands alertness, boldness and deft hands which the department staff are proud to be blessed with.
