MADURAI: The Madurai bench of the Madras high court on Monday directed the state's health department set up full-fledged dental laboratories with specialists in all 21 government medical college hospitals in the state by the end of next financial year. The court gave this direction while hearing a public interest litigation relating to shortage of doctors and nurses in government hospitals. When the case came up for hearing before the division bench of Justice S Nagamuthu and Justice MV Muralidaran on Monday, the government submitted a report, which the court had sought when the case had come up for hearing last week.

The court, which perused the report asked, "The writ petition alleged that there were 110 doctors on deputation. When you denied it, the court had asked for a report relating to the number of doctors and nurses who are at present on deputation in hospitals in the state. But, you have stated that there are 18 people in the Government Rajaji Hospital in Madurai. What about the status in the remaining hospitals?" It then asked for a fresh report from the government.

India’s Ist woman dentist shares journey

For the first woman dentist of India and PU alumnus from Lahore Dental College, Dr Vimal Sood, the biggest challenge in old days was to make people aware that ‘tooth extraction’ was not the only treatment for all the problems. In those days, she used to travel across the country in her mobile van treating people for various teeth ailments.

Dr Vimal Sood was in Panjab University for the Dr Harvansh Singh Judge Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital White Coat Ceremony and induction programme for the first year students of 2016 batch.

Dental clinic fined Rs 25,000 for medical negligence

NAINITAL: Nainital district consumer forum has imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on a dental clinic for medical negligence.

A complaint was filed in 2011 by Hira Devi, whose husband Trilok Rawat was undergoing treatment for tooth sensitivity at the clinic. Rawat has since died.

In her complaint, Devi had alleged that the doctor uprooted a healthy tooth and then removed a part of her husband's gum to control the damage. "Doctors from the clinic misled us. My husband had problems chewing his food and had to undergo further treatment in Haldwani. I filed a complaint so that this does not happen to anyone else," said Devi.

Talking to TOI, Rajendra Pargai, a member of the forum said, "The case dates back to 2011 and we found the clinic to be at fault. The clinic has been ordered to pay the money to the family within a month of the order."
