Meenakshi Ammal Dental College & Hospital, Maduravoyal, Chennai

Meenakshi Cleft & Craniofacial Centre was established at Meenakshi Ammal Dental College and Hospital in the year 2003 under the directorship of Professor R.

Since the inception in the year 2003, the Cleft Centre has grown in reputation and stature and presently caters treatment to around 600 to 700 children every year. The Centre is ably staffed by specialists trained to manage the entire spectrum of Cleft and Craniofacial anomalies. From a modest beginning of around 90 surgeries in 2003, we have grown to 600 surgeries in the last administrative year of 2013.
As-off today we have successfully provided comprehensive care including Orthodontic and Prosthetic rehabilitation for more than 7000 children hailing from all the 4 states of south India.

Our strong-point has always been the balanced blend of clinical work and academic excellence. We provide the Post-Graduate Program a constant stream of clinical material and scope for academic research in the form of PG dissertation material and research papers. At present we have a combined publication profile of more than 30 international publications in highly acclaimed indexed, peer-reviewed journals and 10 national publications.
