Colleges in India
Have you ever observed that though
dentists are also doctors they are always addressed separately?
Dental science is one of the basic subjects in medical science
but the specialization in the same makes you a BDS and not a
MBBS degree holder.
Though some of them feel that BDS
is not as great as MBBS- there are many who want to do
specialization in Dental science only. Today with people caring
for their looks so much- Dental science involves itself also in
cosmetic industry where people correct the way their teeth
looks, put on braces, and gap correction and the list goes on.
So if you look at it in a different perspective BDS has more
options of survival than a normal doctor.
Admissions to these Dental
colleges involve the usual process of going through Dental
Entrance Exam which is a written test and then followed by the
counseling process. These are as difficult and tough as any
medical entrance exam. Many who have tried for a medical seat
and have not got prefer to take up BDS as the next option. Most
prominent Dental courses are BDS and MDS though specializations
are available in various others sectors as well.
Colleges in India include a few of the following:
Bangalore Institute Of Dental
Science Hospital, Bangalore
Bharati Vidyapeeth’s Dental
College and Hospital, Pune;
Buddha Institute of Dental
Sciences and Hospital, Patna;
Christian Dental College, Ludhiana;
College Of Dental Surgery, Manipal;
Dental College & Hospital, Lucknow;
The list does not stop there
because apart from Dental colleges there are also Dental
institutes in India that offer courses for BDS and MDS students.
Best Dental colleges in India also have hospitals in the same
campus. This helps the students watch the doctors perform the
various treatments. In fact most of times, simple issues like
dental cleaning are handled by the house surgeons who are
studying at the college.
