Poor pay drives dentists to BPOs . Shruthi Balakrishna, TNN Apr 2, 2009, 05.40am IST. BANGALORE: Dr Meena (name changed) is a BDS graduate. But unlike her classmates she de…cided to not pursue a career in dentistry. Instead she joined a BPO. Reason: Being a dentist would have fetched her a miserable Rs 2,000 monthly salary against Rs 8,000 plus she is earning at her BPO job. Meena is not alone. Many fresh BDS graduates are hanging up their white coats and opting for better-paying jobs. Even those are not easy to come by. When they do, it is to work as tutors, medical transcriptionists and in health insurance agencies.. BDS graduates are being squeezed out of the 'dental' market as the preference is for those with post-graduate degrees. But PG seats are too few and too expensive to fund. Mushrooming colleges have also led to a flood of new BDS graduates with poor job prospects. BDS degree holders whom TOI spoke with said they preferred to take non-dental jobs that came their way instead of remaining unemployed. They admitted that they were unhappy with such jobs but salary was a deciding factor. Those like Sagarika who opted to be a dentist earned a meagre salary of Rs 3,000 per month after five months of practice at a clinic. "This payment was for half a day. Even if I had worked the full day, I would have earned only Rs 4,000. I could hardly save any money and ended up borrowing more from my father," she said. College principals too admit that it's really hard for the dental graduates. "A decade ago, fresh graduates were appointed as lecturers but now PG is essential for lecturer's post. However, a few colleges take them as tutors paying a meagre amount from Rs 2,000 to Rs 4,000. The others join as assistants in clinics," said Dr S S Hiremath, dean, Government Dental College. Naturally, dental seats in many colleges - even in government colleges where the fee structure is lower - are going abegging. Take the case of Dr Chandana, who is working as a lecturer in private dental college and earns Rs 5,000. "This is not even half of what I spent for studying BDS," she said. Many students join the course not because of a passion for dentistry but for the pride of being called a 'Doctor.' "Engineers and doctors do carrystatus, hence I joined the course. If I don't succeed in getting a PG seat, I will pursue interior designing or fashion tec.

A dentist is a place where people go every 6 months. You sit in the dentist chair, they look at your teeth, they put this yellow stuff on your teeth to put vitamins in your te…eth. (You can't taste it) Then they take a Xray of your teeth. (you bite down on). You get to pick out a flavor of mint, strawberry, bubble gum and etc. They put this foamy stuff all over this blue tray, you bite down on it, they suck off all of the foam. The dentist come in and tells you if your teeth is perfect, need braces or if you have any cavitys. If you have to get braces, they tell you do you know where you can go to see an orthodontist. If you have a cavity, I don't know what happens cause I never had a cavity. If your teeth is perfect they give you a goodie bag and they set up a nother apointment. Nothing hurts when you go to the dentist. The worst part is getting the X ray. Over all, It's fun, You can't eat anything for the next thirty minutes.
