The Department of Oral Medicine concentrates on diagnosis of oral diseases and their treatment, but also has opened new avenues for research. The Department started functioning as an independent department of Government Dental College, Thiruvananthapuram in 1973. The department became fully fledged by the year 1992 with the sanctioning of the Post Graduate course, this department presently being the only center providing post graduation in Oral Medicine & Radiology in Kerala State.
