R. university of Health Sciences, Andhra Pradesh with the permission of Dental Council of India and Govt. of India.
The College functioned in two places. Main Dental Hospital along with administrative block (about 24, 000 sq. ft.) was at Old Bus stand premises and the pre clinical depts. (16,000 sq.ft) were functioning at Govt. Siddhartha Medical College, Gunadala, Vijayawada which are about 6 Kms. distance.

During the year 2008, the College was shifted to a new campus building in Machavaram (Gunadala) Vijayawada on the auspicious occasion of UGADI (Telugu new Year) which was constructed in an area of 5 acres land in the Siddhartha Medical College campus.
