Recognition

The Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) program at the UMDC is the only professional dental program in Pakistan. Students are involved in clinical procedures from the outset of the program, with an emphasis on the recognition and prevention of oral diseases. The program is stimulating and enjoyable. It develops attitudes and skills necessary for continual learning after graduation, that is, life-long learning. Good oral health is an integral part of good general health. The aim of this program is to enable graduates to register as dentists to practice in Pakistan. Graduates are encouraged to strive through their advocacy and clinical practice to empower patients and communities to maintain optimal oral health throughout their lives

BDS Dentistry graduates have opportunities to work in general practice, the community dental service, hospital practice, university teaching and research, various individual organisations and the armed forces. Graduates wishing to work in general practice are required to undertake a year of mandatory vocational dental practice working under the supervision of an experienced dentist in a recognized practice. Travelling fellowships and government posts may offer opportunities overseas. Career prospects in Dentistry are good with graduates able to register to practice as a dentist anywhere in Australia. There is a significant shortage of qualified dentists in most areas of Australia, particularly in rural and regional centres. Most graduates find work prior to, or shortly after, graduation. Dentists can work in both private practice and in the public dental health system. Dentists employed in the public sector work in schools, universities, community health centres, mobile dental vans, hospitals and other institutions
