Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences or (C.I.D.S) is an educational facility for the teaching of dentistry located in the picturesque hills of Coorg in southern India. Excellence is a way of life for the institute - we believe in a total student-centric approach - and by restricting our intake we are able to concentrate our expertise and guidance upon the development of the student.
The college provides good infrastructure facilities to the students. It has spacious classrooms, well-stocked library, Dentures workshop, well-equipped laboratories and clinical dental departments. It also provides hostel facility for both boys and girls. A unique feature of the Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences is the personal attention and care taken by the Trustees. Each member of the Managing Committee is involved in areas of construction, maintenance and care of facilities provided, landscaping and gardening, student welfare and maintenance of hygiene in the food provided to the staff and students. They interact directly with the students once a week and ensure that all their needs are met.
Located picturesquely atop a hill commanding a panoramic view of fields and valleys in Virajpet town, the Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences was set up in September 1999. It is affiliated to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore and approved by the Dental Council of India, the Government of Karnataka and the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
