In this post, I will be covering:

BDS Course Structure
BDS or Bachelor of Dental Surgery is a 5-year course which includes 4 years of studies and 1 year of compulsory internship.
As the name says, in BDS you have to learn about the tooth, the head, and the neck. You might have heard people say, dentists are not doctors. It is just a myth.
Every dentist is a doctor and MBBS and BDS are never equal. MBBS learn about the whole body and BDS students learn more about the head and the neck. MBBS students never have to learn the structure and treatment of tooth.
I would like all the BDS aspirants to know the subjects in BDS. And I would list the subjects year wise.
Subjects in First Year BDS:
- Dental Anatomy and Dental Histology.
- Human Physiology.
- Anatomy of Head and Neck.
Subjects in Second Year BDS:
- Dental Materials.
- Pre-clinical operative.
- Pre-clinical Prosthodontics.
First and second year you will be learning non-clinical and in the last two years, you will be learning clinical subjects. 😀
Subjects in Third year BDS:
- General Medicine.
- Oral Pathology.
Subjects in Final year BDS:
- Oral Medicine and Radiology.
- Oral Surgery.
- Preventive and Community Dentistry.
I want students to know about the subjects before taking BDS admission.
The scope of BDS:
Here I am going to crack another myth. Yes, BDS or dentists have good future in coming years. But, it is also true that the field is saturated.
If you want to be a good earning dentist, then you must have great hand work and marketing skills.
As a fresher your earning capacity will be very low and as your experience grows your earnings will shoot up. But, I would suggest dental aspirants opt for MDS after BDS, which will give you more career stability.
I would prefer you to go for MDS in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery after BDS, which is equal to an MD or MS. Yes, it gives you fame and earning as a surgeon.
A surgeon must always have a ladies finger, eagles eye, and a lions heart. : P
Salary Expectation for BDS
As a fresher dentist you can’t earn somewhere between Rs.15,000 to Rs.40,000 depending on the place you are working. Private clinics will pay you Rs.15,000 to Rs.20,000 as fresher and corporate clinics might pay from Rs.20,000 to Rs.35,000.
And if you start your own dental clinic, then think if you are able to get 10 patients per day, then you can easily earn around Rs.75,000 to Rs.1,00,000 monthly.
Salaries and clinic income depends on the location and it may vary from place to place.
Admission Procedures for BDS Admission
For taking BDS admission in India your must:
- Score 50% aggregate in 12th and 50% total in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.
- Quality NEET Entrance exam.
NEET qualification is mandatory for joining any dental college in India.
After you had qualified your NEET entrance exam, you must wait until the counseling dates are published. Before the counseling starts think where you want to take BDS admission.
There is two counseling registration, one is All India Quota Counseling conducted by MCC and other is the state counseling conducted by respective states.
For example, if you want to take BDS admission in any dental college in Karnataka, then you must register for counseling in Karnataka Examination Authority or KEA website and go through the counseling procedures.
As per government rules, you don’t have have to pay any donation for admission. Yes, BDS admission without donation is possible and that is government rule.
The Steps of Counseling Procedures in general:
- Registration for state counseling through the respective state government website.
- Document Verification: The candidate must physically be present for document verification with all the original documents. This might change depending on different states. Sometimes, the government may ask you to deposit a demand draft for security during document verification, which will be refunded.
- Online Counseling: After the online counseling dates are published, you have to login in the respective websites and lock your choice of college and submit. There will be two rounds of online counseling and one round of offline mop-up round.
- Mop-up Round: If seats are not allotted in the first two rounds then, there is one more round called mop-up round in which all the balance seats will be filled.
- Allotment letter: After you have secured BDS admission, you will be given the allotment letter through the website or offline.
Entrance Exams for BDS Admission
I used to get hundreds of calls regarding NEET, whether it is possible to get BDS admission without NEET etc.
For BDS admission there is one and only entrance exam, National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test or NEET.
You don’t have to apply for any other exams other than NEET. If any agents say so, then it is confirmed that it is fraud. 😀
Even for BDS admission through management quota, NEET qualification is compulsory.
How to Choose a College for BDS admission?
There are a lot of dental colleges in India and few of the dental colleges are not that up to the mark. So, before joining a dental college for BDS, I would prefer you to know about a few things.
You must only join dental colleges with:
- Excellent patient exposure: This is a professional and practical course. If a dental college doesn’t have patients then how would the students be able to learn? Make sure the dental college has enough patient exposure. The student to patient ratio must be good and you can get the details from former students or other students studying in the same college.
- Faculties: The college must have excellent faculties in clinical departments like endodontics, prosthodontics, oral surgery, and periodontics. I would never say the lecturer must have years of experience and all. The professor must have the confidence to make the student work. Or else it all go for the students.
- Extra fee charges: Some dental colleges in India charge a hefty amount for materials, books, examination fees etc. If you choose colleges in the center of the city like Bangalore and all, the extra charges would be a little high compared to other colleges.
- Location: The location of dental college also matters for parents. But, I prefer to send students to safe places which are well connected via road, rail and air.
- Climate: I just included this as I had prior experience. In some place, the college will be the best and the climate and groundwater won’t be good. It will affect the student directly.
Fee Structure for BDS in India
After the entry of NEET, the government and college fix the fee structure for every dental college in India. The fee structure for BDS admission depends on colleges and places.
For example, last year the fee structure for BDS admission in Bangalore was Rs.4.17 lakh per year excluding hostel and food. But, many dental colleges in Bangalore filled the seats for as low as 2 lakh per year. BDS course fee in Bangalore or any other city may vary with demand too.
And in Delhi NCR area, the fee structure was ranging from 1.5 lakh to 3.75 lakh per year depending on colleges.
We provided BDS admission to many colleges in India for around 11 lakh including tuition fee, hostel, food and material fees for five years. Yes, we were having partnered college like that. That too college with great patient exposure.

Not Interested to take BDS admission through us? No problem.
But, I would like to tell you how to select a genuine educational consultant who could help you get a BDS seat in any dental college.
Choose BDS admission educational consultants who:
- Experienced Consultants: Have been into educational consultancy business for more than at least 3 years. Why I prefer experienced consultants are because newbies won’t have an idea of the counseling procedures for BDS admission. It took us one complete year to get the exact information regarding counseling after the launch of NEET entrance exam.
- Competitive Fees: Most of the consultants charge a hefty service charge apart from the tuition fees. The fact is that most of the colleges pay the consultant a service charge for promoting their college. And a few colleges don’t. If a consultant charges very high, then it will surely shoot up your fees.
- Installment Fee Payment: Most of the educational consultants provide fee payment in installment and few don’t. So, choose BDS admission consultants who can provide you easy and secure payment options.
- Recognized Colleges: Choose BDS admission consultants who deal only with reputed colleges and universities only. You might have read in the newspaper that many dental colleges lost their affiliation and all. So before choosing a college check whether a college is recognized by Dental Council of India.
- After Support: The first thing which I told you was experienced consultants. The reason is If an educational consultant shut down his company and later after a year of your admission you need some clarifications about your fee structure, whom will you contact? If you choose educational consultants who are in the field for more than 3 years, then you will surely get good after support.
- Registered Office: Choose educational consultants who have a registered head office, so that in case of any future help you can contact them easily.
- Expert in the course: Ask your BDS admission consultant many questions and clarify all your doubts. Opt for that consultant whom you feel to communicate easily. If you feel the consultant is an expert and know more about the course, it’s scope, counseling procedures and all, then you can go for him without a second thought.
- Extra Benefits: During your conversation, you can ask the consultant what all benefits he will be providing. Only very few educational consultants will be providing extra benefits like scholarship schemes, free study materials etc.
Use the service wisely! : P
