    HI FRIEND,

    To practice as a dentist you must need at least a Bachelor's degree in Dental Science (BDS).

    There is no specialisation at the bachelor level. If you want your career to grow, then you will have to be a specialist with a Masters (MDS) degree.



    The main specialization areas of Dentistry are:



    Orthodontics: which deals with straightening and aligning teeth and jaws

    Periodontics: which specializes in the care of gums and the diseases that might afflict them

    Operative Dentistry or Endodontics for root canal jobs, fillings and cosmetic surgery;

    Prosthodontics which involves the making of artificial teeth;

    Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery which deals specifically with operations on the mouth and jaw

    Pediatric Dentistry for treating children and

    Oral Pathology which provides the diagnosis for diseases that affect the mouth.


    Eligibility :

    Candidates who have passed 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Biology, with at least 50% marks are eligible for admission in the Bachelor of Dental Science (BDS) course.


    all the best
