The Department of Prosthodontics started in the year 1965 under the able guidance of Dr. Govardhan Hegde, the first Prosthodontist in Bangalore. The dental mechanics course was introduced in the year 1966. Most of the senior dental technicians / mechanics working in various dental institutes of Karnataka were trained by this department. The department started its post-graduate education in 1990-91. The department was headed by Dr. S Ramananda Shetty, Dr. D. R. Prithviraj and currently by Dr. Sounderraj K. Implantology was started in 2003 and in the year 2012, the PG intake was increased from two to three. It is a matter of pride that some of the faculty of the department have held few of the administrative posts.  Dr Govardhan Hegde has served as the Principal of the Institute, Dr S Ramananda Shetty, has held the post of Prinicipal, also the prestigious posts of DME, V C of RGUHS and NITTE Universities. Dr. D. R. Prithviraj has served two terms as the Dean cum Director of this Institution and has been Syndicate member of RGUHS.

Presently the department consists of seven staff, Dr. K Sounder Raj Professor & HOD, Dr. Prema,   Dr. Vishwanath S K, Dr. Anoop Nair and Dr. Reshma Kulkarni Associate Professors and two Assistant Professors, Dr. Kalavathi M, and Dr. Nagaranjani Prakash.
