Dental Education in India

       Dentistry is a branch of medical science, dealing with the treatment of disorders of the mouth, face and maxilla. There are two hundred and fifty Dental Colleges in India, which produce up to twenty thousand dentists every year. BDS, which is expanded as Bachelor of Dental Surgery, is the authorized under graduate degree for students. However, many students do not get attracted to BDS course because, the cost of pursuing dental education and arranging a new clinic after the studies is very high.


Like, for any other course an Entrance Exam is a mandatory process to join

the BDS course. The various entrance exams conducted in the nation are CBSE, PMT, DUMET, TNPCEE, BCECE etc….The total span of this course is five years, in which the first four years is for Studies and training and the final year comprises of a compulsory internship. The basics of general medicine, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, microbiology, pharmacology, surgery and anatomy are taught here. In   depth

Dental anatomy with Oral histology, Oral Pathology, Pedodontics, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics, Oral with Maxillofacial surgery, Oral Medicine with Radiology and Orthodontics with Dentofacial are taught as a part of their syllabus.      MDS, the Masters of dental surgery is the post graduation course offered in India. The other dental courses in dentistry are DDS, which is Doctor of Dental Studies, DDM, which is the Doctor of Dental Medicine, and MSD, which stands for Master of Science in Dentistry. The number of PG seats and colleges are very less, when relatively compared to the number of UG seats and institutions. Therefore, the government of India has planned to; bring in new advanced dental colleges thereby increasing the number of seats, for the UG students to pursue PG not only with the old regular subjects but also with various new fields of dental studies. 

              Awareness should be created, which should demonstrate the need of dentistry and dental education in India. Our Indian government must appoint many dentists in government and private hospitals, and many dental hospitals and clinics should be bloomed in all parts of India. Thus making this service oriented study an attractive and a well-known one for the future generation to opt for it.
