A degree in B.D.S or dentistry is on high demand among medical professionals all around the globe. This degree ensures a promising future in the dental field and also is a respectable carrier option. The increasing consciousness towards proper dental care and oral health among the youth these days have further advanced the career in dentistry. This course teaches students about dental problems, surgery, and dentures. The duration is 5 years with 4 years of academic education and 1 year of internship. To pursue your B.D.S course you need to be passionate, have a focused mind and also a hardworking attitude as B.D.S is a challenging course. There are a lot of dental colleges out there that offer a B.D.S degree but choosing one from among those is not an easy task. The more are the options, more is the confusion.

There are a lot of colleges for B.D.S but among those, you should choose the one which is both a medical and a dental college. The subjects of BDS and MBBS are almost the same in the first 2 years. In the first year, BDS and MBBS both have anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and in the second year, they have pathology, microbiology, and pharmacology in common. So instead of choosing for a college which offers only dental education why not go for a college which offers both dental and medical education. The faculty of the college which offers both medical and dental education would be more knowledgeable and experienced compared to the faculty of the college which offers only dental. So who would not like to go for a college that can offer both medical and dental courses?

There are very few colleges for B.D.S which can offer quality education within a budget. In fact, there are not many colleges that offer both medical and dental education at the same time with a reasonable fee.

Santosh Deemed to be University is one such prestigious institute for medical and dental education which offers UG, PG and Ph.D. courses within an affordable budget. The fee for BDS in Santosh is Rs. 2.5 Lakhs per annum. The University has a separate hostel for boys and girls. It also offers comprehensive learning and clinical training in an 800+ bedded teaching hospital. It is a NAAC accredited premier deemed to be university in Delhi NCR.
