About Christian Dental College

Location: Ludhiana

State: Punjab

The Christian Medical Society running the Christian Medical College and College of Nursing felt the need to start a course in the dental discipline. The need was given shape by an American Missionary Dr. J.J Fason who visited India in 1968. His vision to start a modern dental clinical at the established Christian Medical College in Ludhiana was soon realized through his pioneering efforts. He served the Institution till 1972.
20th December 1893 and the world was preparing to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. The city of Ludhiana was preparing to witness the birth of an institution. Fourteen people, under the initiative of Dr. Edith Brown, took a step of faith to bring into existence the North Indian School of Medicine for Christian women, which is today the Christian Medical College Ludhiana Society.
Christian Dental College is part of the Christian Medical College Ludhiana Society, which was established in the year 1992 with the untiring efforts of Dr. J. L. Joshi. By 1992, the College was affiliated to Punjab University and the first batch of 20 students was admitted. In 1997, the Dental Council of India granted its recognition to the College. The student intake was raised to 40 admissions per year from 1988
Affiliation was shifted to Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot, Punjab in July 1999. Christian Dental College is the first private dental college in the state of Punjab to start the MDS course in the subject of Pedodontia and Preventive Dentistry in the year with four admissions per year. We envisage starting PG programmes in all other subjects as well. In 2003, certificate course in Dental Mechanic was initiated with an annual intake of 20 admissions.
The Primary aim for establishing the Christian Dental College was to train young individuals as professionals who would be motivated to take up working in needy parts (dentally challenged areas) of India through Mission fields and other sponsoring agencies.
