About Us


The dream of establishing a Dental College came true with the heavenly touch of St. Gregorios of Malankara whose mission was to evolve a new concept in community service and to add new dimensions to social and religious responsibility and commitment. The establishment of St. Gregorios Dental College (SGDC) in 2005 is a clear manifestation of the sublime philosophy of Christian life – not to be ministered but to minister- as envisaged by our Patron Saint, Saint. Gregorios.

The College, named after Saint Gregorios of Malankara, is a private minority institution managed by the Malankara Jacobite Syrian Christian Education Trust, under the Jacobite Syrian Christian Church. The other institutions under the aegis of Trust are B.P.C. College Piravom, B.P.S College Piramadom, P.I.Z. Training College Malecruz and St. Thomas College Puthencruz.

St. Gregorios Dental College is affiliated to the Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS), Thrissur and recognized by the Dental Council of India, New Delhi. It offers Bachelor Degree in Dental Surgery (BDS) with an annual intake of 50 students and Master Degree in Dental Surgery (MDS) in Prosthodontics and Crown Bridge, Endodontics and Conservative Dentistry, Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics.

The sprawling panoramic campus of about 6.71 acres is located at Chelad, 6 km north of Kothamangalam Town, in the Ernakulam District, Kerala State, India. The nearest railway station is Aluva, 35 km west and the nearest airport is Cochin International Airport 35 km northwest of the College. The idyllic location of the campus, at the gate way to High Range, enjoys the refreshing aura of the rural ambience.

The College has state of the art infrastructure with advanced facilities for effective teaching, learning and better diagnosis and management. ICT enabled Air-conditioned classrooms and well-equipped laboratories and clinical departments, well-stocked Central Library with more than 4180 volumes and about 33 research journals in hard copy and 148 e journals, provide ample opportunities for quality learning and research.

The College has carved a sense of reliance and trustworthiness among the community around through conducting various community outreach programmes making them visit SGDC for their oral health needs. The higher number of patients visiting the College is a rare opportunity for the UG and PG students for greater exposure and expertise.

True to its founding objectives, the College has built up a distinct reputation in terms of academic performance and conducting numerous skill development activities. The present reputation of the College is the result of the long vision and resolute commitment of the Management coupled with the unconditional cooperation and hard work of the Staff and Students. Above all, the intercession and blessings of the Patron Saint, Saint Gregorios is a major guiding force. The College takes pride in its past achievements and looks forward to realizing its aspirations for the future. It is steadfast in its commitment to shape and mould generations of young men and women into professionally competent and ethically upright dentists.
