IS MDS / ABROAD HIGHER DENTAL EDUCATION REALLY WORTH ?
SHOULD YOU TRY FOR IT OR NOT ?
Top Questions To Help You Decide : Are You Fit For MDS ?
TOP 5 REASONS : WHY YOU SHOULD NOT DO MDS !
Its that time of the year when many fresh dental students would be finishing their internship and graduating as a doctor. All of them looking forward to the future with equal amounts of anxiety and excitement.
Most them would be first generation dentists having absolutely no clue of how to go about. Majority of us feel doing a post graduation is the ultimate thing you could do after BDS.
Many would be preparing for the upcoming exams seriously, some would be trying their best to study regularly, some would have began with full enthusiasm and gave up midway and some would probably be waiting to just try their luck without much effort.
Some will be waiting with cash in hands to pay to private colleges and get the MDS seats.
(But that also may not help now – as even for Private Colleges – Students must qualify NEET and Admission will be on the basis of NEET Exam only)
No matter what, the ultimate aim is always MDS ( Private or Government )
But should you just join MDS in a private college by spending 40 Lakhs just because your friend did it. Should you prepare for one of the toughest entrance exams (AIPG/NEET) just because some of your seniors have tried and got through and some are still trying.
Its 2015 & this approach may not be good. Never base your decisions on what others are doing. Have you ever heard the lines
“One man’s paradise is another man’s hell”
What may be correct for your friend may not be for you. So the need of the hour is to take the decision based on your situation and resources. So you need to decide on your own.
But wait … before you decide …
read these top questions which will help you to decide if you should do MDS ????
A Little Recap :
1. How We Ended Up Doing BDS/Dentistry and
Now Waiting For MDS/Higher Education ??? Fate ???
But, what is strange is most of us are just repeating the same thing we did some years back. Just for a small recap, let’s think of how most of us actually ended up here.
Let’s Recap …
“You have To Get Science … Every One in Our Family Is Science”

It all probably started from your 9th or 10th grade when your parents started telling you to-“study well so that you would be getting science group.” Being a doctor is a thing of pride for many ambitious parents. So, they directly or indirectly push their kids towards a career in Health Sciences.
Once you belonged to the science group, you gave up every other thing you ever loved to just to keep trying to get into any one of the “only” two professions that parents consider a profession :
An engineer or a doctor.
You gave multiple exams and kept slogging those two years and finally landed up in an engineering college or a medical college.
Those of you who couldn’t get a medical seat compromised by taking up dentistry.
That almost sums up how most of us ended up doing BDS/Dentistry.
If you notice, most us never had the choice or the chance to think of what we really wanted to do. We did most of these things because everybody else did it or probably what we were told to do.
None of us really took time to think if we really wanted to do what we are going to do and how it really feels like. It’s sad that it happens mostly in our country that the biggest decision of our life was not our own but it was influenced by others.
” BDS is Over … Shall I do MDS ??? “
Now that we yet again stand at the crossroads of our next big decision,
why are we blindly doing things like a herd of sheep?
BDS/Dental Graduation is over !!!
What To DO Now … MDS/Higher Dental Education ???
All of us want to do a PG/Higher Dental Education,
but how many of you really enjoyed your UG/Dental Graduation ?
How do you think you would enjoy doing your MDS if you never really enjoyed BDS?
Have you asked yourself this question?
In my opinion here are some reasons why some people should not be doing a PG.
Unless you get a Govt. Sponsored seat … it usually involves 2 to 3 years of preparation (with no guarantee that you will get) you are going to spend Millions for Higher Dental Education in private institutions.
