WhereDr. D. Y. Patil Dental College & Hospital

The Alumni association of D Y Patil dental college and hospital, headed by Dean Dr Deepak Kulkarni was diligent, energetic and in animation like never before. The association successfully conducted a CDE programme and organised a DJ party which was followed by a splendid dinner on 9th July 2017.


The CDE programme was a Hands-on course on Indirect Ceramic Veneers, which was mentored by Dr Sandesh Mayekar, who is a pioneer in aesthetic dentistry in India. He was accompanied by one of his close acquaintances, Dr Ramesh Shankar, a founding member of Indian academy of aesthetic dentistry. The one-day programme held in the Implant centre started at 9.30 am, had a participation of 25 delegates, who were mostly private practitioners from Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. After a warm welcome by Dr Vivian Varghese, the course kick started with an extensive presentation on Indirect Ceramic veneers and laminates by Dr Mayekar. As a part of the Programme, Dr Mayekar also demonstrated the veneer tooth preparation and showed the cementation protocol on live patients. The extensive discussion during the presentation and the live demonstration instilled confidence among the participants, as they later performed the tooth preparation on mounted extracted tooth under the guidance of Dr Mayekar and Dr Ramesh Shankar. At 5.15 pm in the concluding session, the participants were awarded with certificates and a book titled "More Than a Mouthful: Adventures of a Dentist" authored by Dr Mayekar; followed by the vote of thanks delivered by Dr Karan B.


The DJ party which was organised on the same day by the Alumni association, began at 8.15 pm and was attended by around 40 alumni. The members of IDA Pimpri Chinchwad also actively participated in the event. The alumni, the interns and students of the dental college danced to the music and enjoyed taking pictures, especially selfies at the photo booth. The party concluded with the gala dinner at 10.45 pm.


The Alumni committee members namely Dr Mahesh C, Dr Pallavi G, Dr Swapnil B, Dr Vivian K, Dr Pritesh J, Dr Nikhil B, Dr Swapnil K, Dr Uday L and Dr Karan B, thanked Mrs Smitha Jadhav madam, Dr Deepak Kulkarni sir(Dean) and registrar Mr Arun Patil for being a constant support for making the planned events possible. The committee members were also grateful and acknowledged the efforts of the interns and the members of the decoration committee for making the events a memorable one.


The success of these events will remain as sweet memories with the Alumni members and will surely be a driving force for the association to carry out more activities for alumni, the dental college and for dentistry as a whole.
