Being a full time dentist is not easy. Its perhaps one of the most toughest courses. BDS lasts for around 4 years plus one year of internship. That around 5 years to finish BDS graduation. In some states govt has now put mandatory 2 years rural service to be eligible for degree.The journey from BDS to MDS is not only tough but costly also. But there is much more to dentistry also.
Yes, its is tough & stressful … but there are numerous happy and gratifying moments also. Every profession has its happy days. And dentistry also provides many happy and satisfying scenarios. Problem is in between all stresses, we don’t notice them.
In this post we will look at some of those happy moments.
