Message from the Dean, Dr. Ashita Uppoor

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Mangalore, a premier dental institution located in the south-western coastal city of Mangalore.

Started in 1987, MCODS Mangalore has evolved over the past 26 years to occupy a cherished place in the minds of the students, faculty and alumni. Owing to an excellent track record of academic performance, it has consistently been a preferred choice of students wanting to pursue their undergraduate degree in dentistry as well as in various disciplines of post-graduation.

Being alumni of this institution has stood them in good stead all over India and abroad.

A confident and enthusiastic team of teaching faculty backed by the management’s commitment to providing good infrastructure ensures that a student leaves the portals of this institution well-armed with proficiency, skills, knowledge and above-all a supreme sense of confidence to tackle the future head-on.

A well-equipped central library, modern classrooms and laboratories with audio-visual and computing facilities combine to add to the joy of learning at MCODS. Hostels (also Wi-Fi enabled) and a state-of-the-art recreational and indoor sports arena, Marena, enable a student to develop a holistic personality with a touch of multiculturalism.

Total transparency in the processes of admission, evaluation, and mentoring adds to the core strength of this institution that is one of the first dental colleges in India to receive the ISO certification for standards in teaching and health care.

I hope you will be inspired to join the growing ranks of its successful students.
