Dentistry is a specialized branch of Medical Science. Due to the advancement of science and technology, every field of knowledge is dividing into smaller parts. The higher level of research has made it necessary for medical science to divide itself into many parts also. Dentistry is one such branch.
During the four years of study at a Dental College, a student will learn about all the basics of medical science such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, medicine, surgery, pathology etc. But the main speciality of Dentistry is that a student also studies the basics of this specialized subject e.g. Science of Dental Materials, Dental Pharmacology, Dental Public Health, Oral Anatomy, Periodontology and Oral Pathology, Endodontics, Paedodontics, Orthodontics, Prosthodontics, Conservative Dentistry, Oral and maxillofacial Surgery etc. So you can see, the list goes on pretty long. Each of these subjects provides the opportunity for post-graduation in the form of FCPS, MS, MCPS, PhD, and MPH etc. The courses are offered at BSMMU, Dhaka Dental College, and NIPSOM etc.
A student has to study 4 years for the B.D. S. (bachelor of Dentistry) degree. A B.D.S. Dental Surgeon is already a specialist medical professional. The profession of Dentistry has emerged as one of the smartest and highest paid jobs all over the world. The number of Dental Surgeons in Bangladesh is still pretty low. Only a handful of Dentists are trying to provide for a huge population. So it is the call of Country and Humanity that a student takes up this noble profession and offer his/her services as a Doctor to the society. We are eagerly waiting for you in the field of Dentistry.
