Dentistry has changed a lot in the last two decades, from traditional silver amalgam to E-max restorations and from Ni-Cr-Co crowns to computer-aided-design/computer-aided-manufacturing zirconium crown. Dental syllabus is getting outdated with the introduction of newer material, technology, and globalization. A new era of internet has already made patient aware of new things in dentistry, so the demand has increased.

It has become essential to adopt to the new technology, new materials, and newer trends in professional life. At present, almost 99% of dental materials, equipment are imported from the USA, Japan, or Europe, leading to huge loss of foreign exchange and burden on Indian Economy. The Government of India has announced “Make in India” initiative, and this is a huge market potential for startup, joint venture and manufacturing of dental products in India.

At present, we have thousands of jobless dental graduates in India; this can be a huge opportunity also if our esteemed Dental Council of India (DCI) comes out with innovative education programs such as

MDS in dental material scienceMSC in dental technology researchMBA in dental marketing and production (in association with AICTE)MBA in dental administration (in association with AICTE)MDS in dental implantologyMDS in digital dentistry and radiology.

Hundreds of dental graduates will become empowered with new skills. This will help India as a global player in dental material manufacturing, innovation, product design, and marketing.

Today, the time has come to introduce “MDS in Dental Implantology;” the science of implantology has grown limitless and therefore needs an independent subject status. This will help in very scientific growth of implantology from institution with standardization in learning, leading to better well-being of needy patients.

Looking forward to a global standard of dentistry in India.
