I'm in Std X and I have decided to take Biology after this. I want to be a dentist. Which are the good colleges in Mumbai and what should I do for that?
Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) is the minimum eligibility to enter into this field.
This is a 4-year programme followed by one year of internship. There are many dental colleges in Maharashtra. Some of these are: Padmashree Dr D. Y. Patil Dental College & Hospital, Navi Mumbai (http:// dypatil.in/collegehome.asp?colid=15); Government Dental College and Hospital, Mumbai (www.gdcmumbai. org/); Nair Hospital Dental College, Mumbai; Bharati Vidyapeeth Dental College and Hospital, Navi Mumbai (www.bvuniversity.edu.in/); Vasantdada Patil Dental College & Hospital, Sangli (www.vpdc.org/).
Admission to colleges in Maharashtra is through MHT-CET (www.dmer.org). You will get admission depending on your score and preference given. CBSE also conducts an all-India examination, namely, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) (http://cbseneet. nic.in) for admission to other dental colleges all over India.
