Diploma Courses That One Can Pursue After BDS (Dental Degree)

A common question that has grown in students studying dentistry is “What should I pursue after BDS which is merely a dental degree?” This question unites all the students concerned and the final product that comes out of this question is “confusion”.

The students face problems because “BDS as a course doesn’t help them get into MNC placements.” A simple BDS degree doesn’t let a student get that necessary clinical exposure.

But for those who have not been able to gain a seat in the MDS citing multiple reasons need not worry, they can opt for diplomas and dental clinical courses. Diploma courses after BDS are of two types i.e. private and government diplomas. The basic differences between government and private diplomas are affordability (government diplomas are cheap) and Dental Council of India (DCI) approval (only government diplomas have it).

Here are a few diplomas and courses a BDS graduate can apply for:

Private Diploma Courses

There are way too many private diploma courses. In fact, many seasoned dentists are running private diploma courses with big profit margins. The course fee varies differently for different courses. Those looking for clinical experience should opt for this.

Government Diploma Courses

DCI has approved many state dental-councils to run approved dental diploma courses in lasers, endodontics and orthodontics.

In Delhi, IGNOU offers Post-Graduate Certificate in Oral Implantlogy (PGCOI) which has a course duration of 1-3 years at an estimated fees of 1, 56,000 INR.

Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) 2-year PG diploma

RGUHS, Bangalore offers a 2-year diploma course in dentistry. The candidate is eligible if he/she has a BDS degree or an equivalent degree from a University recognized by DCI.

The course is divided into 4 semesters in which the first two semesters deal with Preclinical Work and Applied Basic Sciences and the next two semesters deal with Clinical work.

Candidates looking for experience and degree can opt for this course.

Dental Clinical Courses

One can also opt for various Dental Clinical Courses in Delhi. These courses have multiple specialties like oral surgery, dental implants, periodontics, and prosthodontics. These courses can help you achieve specialty which is a major trend in the medical industry.

Other Courses

A wide range of opportunities lie in the dental departments in hospitals, dental clinics and nursing homes. Apart from this, the Forensic department needs dentists for identification of deceased through bite mark analysis, dental remains etc.

You can also choose to work as a Dental Hygienist or as Dental assistants to models and film artists.

Hence, there is absolutely no need to dishearten yourself post your BDS studies. You can choose your study mode from the above mentioned options. And while pursuing a diploma course you can research for further opportunities in the field and assess your options.…

Three Famous Canadians Working Abroad

With high educational standards and excellent technical training programs, Canada is a popular source of skilled workers throughout the world. Almost anywhere you go, you’ll find Canadians working abroad in a variety of fields, from engineering and medical professionals to actors, artists, and musicians. In fact, it was estimated in 2014 that the total number of Canadians working abroad (or studying) amounted to nearly 3 million people. With so many citizens finding employment overseas, it’s not hard to find stories of people achieving amazing success. Here are three standouts of individuals who made a name for themselves working outside of Canada.

Mark Henry Roswell

Mark Henry Roswell is one of the most popular television personalities from Canada. This may seem odd since very few in the western world have heard of him. In China, however, where Mr. Roswell goes by the name Dashan (meaning ‘big mountain’) he is an actor, comedian, game show host, and television personality of considerable fame. Dashan studied Mandarin at the University of Toronto and, upon graduating, received a full scholarship to the University of Peking to continue his language studies. His ability to speak Mandarin with fluency and a native speaker’s diction led to him hosting an international singing competition on Chinese television in the late 1980s. Since then, he has become a star in China, appearing in numerous films and TV shows.

Andrew Bonar Law

The story of Andrew Bonar Law takes us back to the early 20th century when the New Brunswick-born Law rose to the apex of political power, not in Canada, but in the seat of colonial power: London. As a teenager, Law moved to Scotland to live with relatives. He left school at a young age to work in the iron industry where he rose through the ranks and became a wealthy man by his late 20s. He entered politics in 1900 and eventually became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the only one in history to have been born outside the British Isles. Sadly, his time at the top was short lived as poor health forced him to retire after only 211 days in office. He resigned in May of 1923 and succumbed to his illness later that year.

Jim Carrey

The last on our list of Canadians working abroad is a name everyone will recognize. James Eugene Carrey was born in Newmarket, Ontario, in 1962. By his teens, his father was driving him to Toronto where the youngster was making a name for himself performing in comedy clubs. At one of these shows, he was discovered by legendary comedian Rodney Dangerfield who signed Carrey on as his opening act for a stint in Vegas. From there, it was on to Hollywood where he was a cast member of “In Living Color” before starring in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” He’s starred in a long string of blockbuster comedies ever since.

Canadians working abroad have found great success in the countries in which they live and work. For a country …
