The dream of establishing a Dental College at Chelad came true with the heavenly touch of St. Gregorios of Malankara whose mission was to evolve a new concept in community service and add new dimensions to social and religious commitment. The sublime spirit of Christian life is ‘not to be ministered but to minister’ in every sphere. Reaching out to the humble philosophy of life as envisaged by our Patron Saint, St. Gregorios Dental College is the realization of this philosophy.

The college is run by Malankara Jacobite Syrian Christian Education Trust, under the Jacobite Syrian Christian Church. There are four institutions, under the same management namely B.P.C. College Piravom, B.P.S College Piramadom, P.I.Z. Training College Malecruz and St. Thomas College Puthencruz.

The College is situated in Chelad, 6 km from Kothamangalam. The college is accessible as it is 35 km from the Kochi International Airport, 35 km from the Aluva railway station and 6 km from the National Highway. The sprawling area has been converted into a delightful campus with well-designed Buildings, Pathways, Watercourses and Garden in a serene atmosphere. It enjoys the proximity and facility of the Periyar River, Bhoothathankettu Dam and Idamalayar Project. 

This Dental College named after Saint Gregorios of Malankara, is fully committed to quality education promoting intellectual, spiritual and professional excellence with special emphasis on human service. The college 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 Orthopedics, affiliated to Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS).
