Details :

Wing Commander Vimal Arora was commissioned in the Army Dental Corps in Dec 77 and was seconded to IAF in Jul 1980. During his 17 years of service he has attained excellence in his field of specialty, Prosthodontics. He is one of those exceptional dental officers who joined service as a specialist. In recognition of his outstanding professional contribution he was deputed to Muscat where he earned laurels and was sent abroad to Germany for training at their expense which is rarely done. Making use of his expertise gained in Germany, he modernised the prosthodontic services at Air Force Central Dental Establishment (AFCDE), Bangalore. He also established the first metal to ceramic laboratory in the services.

In order to set up and lay down proper criteria for conducting research in Armed Forces Dental Services, his services were specially requisitioned by Directorate General Armed Forces Medical Services to be posted as Research Pool Officer (RPO). It is due to his efforts that the research in dental services is progressing on lines which are at par with international standards. In addition to research, he willingly took over modernisation of the equipment scale of the three services with matching saving by deleting out of date equipment and materials. It is because of his tremendous involvement that most of the dental centres are equipped with state of art equipment.

For distinguished service of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Vimal Arora.
