SDM College of Dental Sciences & Hospital

About College

The vision that saw the founding of the SDM institutions has always been clear – enlistment of society through education. But maintaining this clarity of vision even as it is translated into reality is no easy task given the diversity and spread of these institutions. The Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Education Society has however proved equal to the task. The committee that charts the destiny of SDM institutions under the Presidenstship of Shri Veerendra Heggade, operates from a modest building of Ujire.
