For all the BDS students all over India one question is becoming more and more worrisome now a days . The question of what after BDS ?
In many previous articles in the website various options after BDS have been discussed . If you haven’t read it yet , then have a look at one of the most read article on What After BDS ! by clicking in the box below .
Yes the most common option that emerges out is MDS . But as we all know , its not so easy as it seems . Getting a Govt. seat is tough as it needs lot of hard work and seats are few . So there is no guarantee that you will definitely get a seat . Option of private colleges in not feasible for everyone as its a costly affair .
So in that case , the next most obvious option remains is to open a clinic . But a new dentist again faces problem here . Today its the the world of speciality treatment . Patients are becoming more and more aware of the various dental treatment modalities : Courtesy Google : )
And also in the dental field too the competition is increasing day by day . There is demand to know about newer treatment modalities like dental implants , lasers etc . So to move ahead in the market of dentistry , any dentist , must have the knowledge of these recent advances . But what if he / she is not able to MDS for some reason . Then how can he/she learn more about these modern treatments !
So in such a case DIPLOMA courses are very useful . Diploma courses are short term courses of usually one or two year duration that teaches a BDS pass-out the basic skills that will definitely enhance the clinical prospects of the student . At the same time he / she also learns the newer techniques of Implants , Lasers , Endodontics , Orthodontics that is of immense help in clinical practice .In this article major list of institutes ( Govt. & Private ) will be given that provide the diploma courses .
PLEASE NOTE : THE LIST BEING GIVEN HERE IS NOT CONCLUSIVE . IT WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY .
