Price of The Course: One obvious factor that while choosing a dentist for short term dental courses in Delhi is the cost. Know your budget to start with. Ensure that the dental clinic is well-equipped, latest technologies & best-quality materials are used for procedures, the dentist is reputed, and yet, you don’t burn a hole in your pocket.
It may be beneficial to opt for a dentist who provides tailor-made courses as per one’s requirement, rather than a dental academy that charges a lot because it even covers topics that you are good at. The idea is to improve your working skills and add a qualification, but not at the cost of your financial security.
Teaching Methodology: BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) covers thorough conceptual knowledge and theoretical details. It, however, often provides insufficient practical exposure. The faculty can’t give individual attention to students either. The result is certified dentists who are far from confident of carrying out procedures independently.
Post graduation, your aim should be to get enough practice that enables you to perform procedures (such as root canal and tooth extraction) successfully and smoothly. Select a dentist who trains you to perform independent procedures. The course should be practical-oriented, with plenty of on-the-patient demonstrations.
Course Duration: Dental clinical courses in Delhi vary in duration – from weekend crash courses to long-term ones, with a duration of multiple months. It is advisable not to go forward with a long-term course unless you are sure about it. Also pay attention to whether the classes take place on weekdays or weekends, and their duration. This would ensure that you don’t need to leave your regular studies or job, for the course.
