Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, Vice-Chairman, Mata Amritanandamayi Math and President, Board of Management, Amrita University, recently addressed faculty, staff and students at the 13th convocation ceremony held at Coimbatore campus on August 21, 2016. Included below are excerpts from his talk. We live in a ‘Result Oriented Society.’ Our parents, teachers, society and people around us have conditioned our minds in such a way that we don’t want to do anything unless we are paid, unless we get something in return. WIIFM… What Is In It For Me…? This goes on within our minds almost like a mantra. It is high time that we seriously think to bring about a change both in our focus and attitude. Parents, teachers and leaders should encourage our students to change their focus from, ‘Result to Action.’ Action is more important. When focus on action becomes 100 percent, when dedication in action arises, productivity increases automatically.

Principal’s Message

Amrita School of Dentistry amalgamates dental education with value-based education. This is what makes our Dental School different from other institutions. In a very short span Amrita School of Dentistry was listed among the first few dental institutions in the country.

Our institution has been very active in research and publications. The culture of research is inculcated during the undergraduate training program onwards.

Students are also exposed to inter disciplinary patient care. The Head & Neck Depart-ment and Department of Sleep Medicine are world class training centers in which dental professional are members of health care providing team. We have MDS training program in all the dental specialities.
