Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) is a five-year degree course, approved by Dental Council of India (DCI) (New Delhi) and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (New Delhi). Besides four years of theory classes and clinical training, one year compulsory internship is also a part of the course. The first two years focus on the basics of medical sciences and an introduction into the dental subjects, the third year brings with it an entry into the real world of dentistry; the clinics. Students are exposed to a variety of procedures and treat patients along with ongoing theory about the same. The final year focuses completely on the Dental sciences and advanced clinical practices. An in-depth theoretical knowledge and appropriate clinical application is the crux of our teaching at the Rayat Bahra Dental College and Hospital.
