Budh (Baddi) town of Solan District in Himachal Pradesh imbibes the beauty of mighty Himalayas. Far away from the cacophony of city life, this town offers a conducive-environment for learning. Located in Budh town, Bhojia Dental College and Hospital is the first and only dental college to be accredited with NAAC since 2016, in the state of Himachal Pradesh. Since its inception in 1997 by Bhojia Charitable Trust under the guidance and constant support of Sh. R.K. Gupta; President of the trust; the institute has been imparting high quality education and medical facilities in the northern belts of the country.

Having 70 full-time and dedicated faculty members, the students are evaluated and monitored on the basis of regular tests and discussion that are performed in the classroom.

Completing two decades of glorious years of excellence in the academic field under the leadership of Mr. Vikram Bhojia, Secretary of the trust; the college has cultivated a decent repute with the medical industry that helps the students to stay upgraded with the contemporary information and happenings. "We are fortunate to share a cordial relationship with the industry professionals and organizations. This highly leads us to the path of excellence and more opportunities," says, Dr. Ajay Chhabra, Principal, Bhojia Dental College, and Hospital. The college has signed MoU with Colgate, through which meritorious students are rendered scholarships and a MoU with Indian Dental Association (IDA) for National Oral Cancer Registry Program.
