WARANGAL: Deputy chief minister T Rajaiah said that the state government would soon set up Dental Council of Telangana. He also said that the dental wing at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital would be strengthened.

Addressing the first ‘Telangana Dental Conference’ organised by Indian Dental Association’s Warangal branch in Warangal on Saturday, he said that the scientific deliberations should be focused to achieve greater modernisation of the dental science in the state.

Speaking to the reports after the conference, he said the government was also contemplating to establish a dental college in the state.

"We will also encourage individuals or institutions intending to set up dental colleges in private sector. The members of Dental Association of India should look into that," he said and added that state government would be ready to extend all possible support if anyone comes forward with proposals to set up industries to manufacture dental implants, tools and other related products.

The Dy CM informed that he would be launching a 24-hour ‘Hospital Stay’ programme on  Dec 14 (Sunday) at 9 am. As part of the initiative he would spend time at TB Hospital, Regional Eye Centre, CKM, MGM, ENT and Hanamkonda Maternity Hospitals at Warangal district headquarters. "The Hospital Stay will also wake up the government hospital mechanism which is in a state of slumber" Rajaiah added.
