Initially, Hamdard University Dental Hospital (HUDH) was selected to have such an activity in which lectures on various topics covering all aspects of Prosthodontics were delivered. These topics included applied aspects of dental materials, removable partial denture, complete denture, fixed partial denture, implant supported prosthesis, occlusion, etc.
