About College

From its inception as a small Department of Dentistry at the Calicut Medical College in 1969, the mission of the Govt. Dental College, Kozhikode has been to impart and improve the oral health care of the population. It later expanded as a Dental wing with four specialties in 1979 and was upgraded as a full fledged  kozhikode GDC  in 1981 with an intake of 30 students to the BDS course that started in 1982. Later this was enhanced to 40 students in 1996 and to 50 students in 2009. Our training programs are focused on the provision of quality educational experiences to train clinically competent dentists and develop advocates and dental leaders to address the oral health issues of the community. We achieve this through service, training, teaching and research.
