2005 - 2010 Deemed University 

On March 18, 2005 Saveetha Dental College along with Saveetha College of Physiotherapy and Saveetha School of Nursing were declared deemed to be University under section c of UGC act 1952. This day is still celebrated as our Convocation Day for the past decade. This propelled the institution to innovate in our curriculum by introducing 9 additional subjects. This created a stir in the All India dental education circle and motivated the Dental Council of India (DCI) to revamp the ageing 1948 curriculum. Our innovations such as forensic odontology , implants and aesthetic dentistry were adopted by the DCI in their new regulation.

Not satisfied with our accolades over the past two decades, Saveetha began a comprehensive reinvention procedure that included complete infrastructure renovation with modern imported dental equipments. Furthermore, we have created the first comprehensive UG training program in India.  The institution also celebrated its first Guinness World Record in 2013 where 500+ doctors went to 77 destinations and screened over 1 lakh school children in a single day. Furthermore, Saveetha purchased  the first CAD CAM integrated 3d Printed system for computerised dental treatments. It's one of the first centres of excellence in Asia. To raise the institution to international standards we opened the four seasons super deluxe hostel that had redefined hostel design in many other institutions.
