Confirmatory diagnosis is an art, which the department of Oral Pathology & Microbiology has mastered under the eminent leadership of Dr.G. Sivakumar and his boisterous team. He has more than 20 years of teaching experience and has been a Post-doctoral guide in many universities. He has also undergone specialized training in Bio technology and Forensic Odontology and Oral Cancer Detection. He is a life member of various professional bodies like Indian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists (IAOMP) and is the Executive Director of the college in-house journal.
The department caters to the diagnostic needs of various departments and also accepts specimens from various private establishments in and around Chennai. It is no wonder that for the surgeon to wield the proverbial knife with confidence, the pathologists’ backing is an absolute must!
