An insight into dental profession as a career in India.

You happily pay a visit to this professional to get a million dollar smile. Yes, we are taking about dentists and dentistry. This profession deals with the inspection and treatment of teeth, gums and other parts of the oral cavity. A dentist especially takes care of problems affecting the teeth. Common procedures are removal, correction and replacement of decayed, damaged or lost teeth.

However, this career profile is changing rapidly, creating many opportunities and challenges for job seekers. With an increasing awareness of oral health and the introduction of new fields like oral pathology (diagnosis for diseases that affect the mouth), periodontics (care of gums and the diseases that might afflict them) and orthodontics (straightening and aligning teeth and jaws) have all enhanced the scope in this field. 

Why be a dentist?
There are as many reasons to be a dentist as there are dentists. It is a career that provides plenty of rewards and challenges as well as an opportunity to help people and make communities healthier places. 

People choose to become dentists because they can...
·         Restore the oral health and transform the lives of their patients.
·         Be independent in their careers.
·         Earn a good salary.
·         Choose from a number of career options.
·         Maintain a flexible lifestyle.
·         Shape the future of oral health care.
·         Be respected members of their communities.
·         Exercise creativity in their daily work.
·         Work as part of a team.
·         Provide benevolent care to their communities.


Job Prospects

Excellent employment opportunities are available for dentists in dental departments in hospitals, nursing homes, dental clinics and health departments. You can also seek a teaching job in any of the dental colleges spread across the country.

Apart from this, as a dentist you can seek work in the research and advisory departments of pharmaceuticals. Opportunities are there in companies producing oral care products like toothpaste, mouth wash, and gum care products.

Self-employment is also a promising avenue. With experience, you can start your own individual clinic. Many dentists prefer private practice as it provides the best financial prospects along with a greater level of independence.


Pay Packet

In government hospitals, a newly trained dentist could begin around Rs. 6,000 a month (including allowances), while in private hospitals it could be slightly less. Post-graduate degree holders can expect to start on from Rs. 7,000 upwards.

Dental surgeons can earn a good amount through their own practice. The consultation charges could start from Rs. 250 upwards for cosmetic filling or routine check-up. These can be as high as Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000 depending upon the nature of the dental problem. A well-established dentist can make around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 1, 00,000 or more per month.



  • A career in dentistry is personally fulfilling since you will be performing an important community service to help people uphold their health and appearance.
  • To serve the present and future oral health needs of patients, as a dentist you will enjoy the challenge of a lifetime of learning.
  • The profession used to be a 'standing' profession and dentists would stand while treating their patients. Later, it became a combination of sitting and standing, depending on the procedure involved. Now, it is largely a sedentary one and dentists are prone to back and neck problems.
  • You will have to deal with biological waste and radioactivity as X-Rays are taken within the clinic setup in most settings, thus exposing you to harmful elements and disease.
  • In the initial years of your career, you will have to put in a lot of hard work before you can establish your name in this industry.
