Manav Rachna Dental College: Providing Quality Dental Education

Manav Rachna Dental College was established in 2006 and is recognized for the BDS and MDS Degrees by the Ministry for Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India and Dental Council of India. MRDC provides more than just education--it is a centre that is envisioned to focus on quality dental education and research besides providing affordable quality dental care to people. The College is professionally managed and has been nurtured and developed with the best of technical and professional infrastructure to suit the ever-increasing needs of modern day dental health care. At present, the permissible annual intake is 100 students at the undergraduate level and 21 (3 per specialty) at the postgraduate level across seven dental specialties. Post graduate programs are offered in Periodontology, Oral Medicine and Radiology, Pedodontics, Oral Pathology, Prosthodontics and Crown & Bridge, Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics and Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.    
The College has been accredited at Grade ‘A’ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in 2015. Innovation in teaching methodology and curriculum enrichment are the highlights of the educational experience which the student can expect on entering the undergraduate or the post graduate program at Manav Rachna. An experienced and dedicated faculty with appropriate use of audio visual aids in ‘smart’ classrooms helps the student to understand and grasp the subject more easily. The departments are well equipped with the state-of-the-art infrastructure and timely updated on any new advancement in the field to keep students abreast with latest studies/researches worldwide.

At MRDC, we strongly believe that along with didactic teaching, regular practicals/ seminars are important aspect of students’ learning. Students are further motivated to undertake field visits through various camps and workshops organized by the institution. Research is a top priority at MRDC. We strive to establish an all pervasive research environment, getting students and faculty involved in research and innovation. Students are encouraged to carry out research in emerging areas and quality infrastructure and guidance is provided for the same. Each department has its own laboratories and facilities, equipped to handle high-end research. The outstanding research work and the publications of faculty and students are recognized and rewarded both nationally and internationally.
Throughout the course, dental students will have close contact with the teaching staff, and senior students, which allows learning by example and peer review. The introduction of vertical integration in teaching methods initiated by the college is aimed at widening the horizon of the student whilst promoting a close bond in the student community. These integrated seminars involve presentations on different aspects of a topic by undergraduates (first through IVth BDS, Interns, Post graduates and faculty). An in depth literature analysis form ensures quality of presentation The institution is confident that such innovative changes in the curriculum will go a long way in personality development of the student in addition to enrichment of scientific knowledge. A further innovation to the teaching methodology is ‘horizontal integration’ in undergraduate teaching wherein subject teachers across different subjects jointly discuss a topic with a BDS batch. This has the advantages of generating greater interest in the student with multiple teacher interaction, saving study hours in the syllabus which can be used for additional topics in addition to better interaction and knowledge sharing between the knowledge givers.    

The faculty at MRDC has a cordial relationship with students and act as Mentor, Guide and Friend.

Research and Development at Manav Rachna: Transforming Young Minds

We live in a knowledge-driven economy, where Research and Development (R&D) has become the key to sustainable economic growth, creating in the process, a competitive edge. Across an 18-year journey with many a milestones to credit, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI) have taken on the challenge of yielding applicable knowledge and path breaking Research and Development initiatives. Students at MREI are constantly motivated to generate new and revolutionary ideas.
Their out-of-the-box ideas have found expression through a wide array of products like the Smart Skull (that sends accident notification to the nearest hospital and the patient’s relatives), SwasthyaSanjivani (an affordable and automatic on-the-spot blood and urine testing system), Smart Bin (producing social messages when trash is thrown inside), Tractorobot (a robot controlled Tractor) or even the First Urban Diesel car with a mileage of 123 km/l. The Manav Rachna International University, a constituent of MREI was conferred with the ASSOCHAM Education Excellence Awards 2014 for the Best Private University Promoting Research in recognition of its outstanding contribution in R&D activities and subsequently with the ASSOCHAM National Educational Excellence Award for the ‘Best University serving Social Cause’ in the year 2015. 
MREI’s over 3000 research publications in International and National Journals & Conferences bears testimony to its commitment towards quality education.

The Group’s over 242 Patents (filed/granted) are a result of their ceaseless zeal and dedication at the Manav Rachna Innovation and Incubation Centre.

The patents filed at Manav Rachna reflect both utility and innovative skill. Whether it is a Battery Operated Milk Warmer (Patent application no. 719/DEL/2014), an Electronic Suggestion Cum Complaint Box (Patent application no. 720/DEL/2014), a Pole Climbing Robot (Patent application no. 715/DEL/2014), a Modified Shear Cutter (Patent application no.716/DEL/2014) or even a Powered Rickshaw which is battery operated and charged through pedaling (Patent application no. 718/DEL/2014), the sheer range of innovations is mind blowing.

The Gesture Controlled Music Player (also known as sensor piano) is another innovative project developed by students of Manav Rachna. The concept of music in engineering  is intriguing, bridging the gaps between technical and creative worlds. The Wireless MIDI Controller is a digital adaptation of a theremin. The theremin is a musical instrument that changes its note value output with reference to the players hand and the controller. The Wireless MIDI Controller is capableof switching between different scales, root notes, octaves and MIDI Channels. Furthermore it is als capable of functioning as an effects unit by setting the appropriate MIDI CC Numbers.
Students, Researchers and Faculty with a passion for innovation have worked round the clock at the Manav Rachna Innovation and Incubation Centre (MRIIC) to come up with unique inventions such as the GPS enabled educating system where lectures can be delivered in different geographical locations through automatic translation (Patent application no. 721/DEL/2014), a Saviour Suit fitted with sensors emitting ultrasonic rays (Patent application no. 1082/DEL/2014) and improved dual powered two wheelers (Patent application no. 1184/DEL/2007).
