WHY YOU SHOULD NOT DO MDS !!
1. Huge competition for few govt. seats and huge investment in private institutes to do MDS yielding negligible benefits and very less returns after completion.
2. With changing scenarios , saturation has reached in all most all branches of Dentistry , thereby limited job offers, overall job scenario poor.
3. Reduced Pay scales with a shift in demand - supply ratio towars right such that there is less demand and more supply.
4. Other carrier options are fast emerging and provide more job security. e.g. MBA in Hospital management and Clinical research.
5. With strict DCI norms, Visiting scenario of professors is over , so can run clinics only after College timings.
6. For begineer's u can be either a Practicioner Or an Academician. You need not do MDS for being a good Practicioner.
7. No much difference in Private practice with specialization except in few branches , as a layman patient only knows u as a good Doctor not as MDS or BDS.
8. Annual Income of Most General Dental Practicioners is more than MDS Practicioners/Academicians.
9. At ur Clinic YOU are the BOSS but in an institute you are dependent on the management which may kick u out anytime .
10. If u do MDS u will have to get settled in an area where there is Job Availability near a Dental College thereby causing migration away from home town/city and Parents/family.
CHOICE IS YOUR'S !!!
