Life after BDS isn't as rosy and easy as many students are led to believe when they take up the course. Many students while doing their internship towards the end of their BDS realize the hard realities of the practice. To become a practitioner, BDS graduates need to be very patient to wait for the right opportunities to present themselves.
If you're interested in pursuing a career in academics, the option to apply for an MDS is also open. MDS was a program in great demand, and remains the pathway for BDS graduates who want to become tenured professors at colleges and universities.
