The salary structure for dentists at the entry level varies a great deal. Today, in our country things are not just about skill and degree. You have to know the right people in the Dental field ,have contacts with private corporate and multi-speciality Centre in the field of Dentistry. it helps if you have undertaken other courses in Implants, Endodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry etc. Also there is an option for opening up a private Clinic , although that requires a good amount of Investment. It's comparatively easier for postgraduates who have completed their MDS. At the Private level a fresh Dentist can expect to earn around 6000 to 13000 depending on the workload , location and type of practice. A person who has done a few diplomas or certificate courses can expect the money to go up to about 18000. A fresh MDS pass out in the private sector can expect anything in between 25000 to 40000. In government sector the salary for a fresh pass out ranges from 12000 to 40000, and about 60000 for MDS. MDS pass outs can also join colleges to teach and earn anything about 25000- 40000 at the entry level. Opening one's own Dental Clinic requires a lot of investment but the returns come sooner and one can expect to earn above 50,000 from the third month of practice, depending on Clientele and Location. A dentist's life is very sound financially and one can live a life of luxury being in the profession. However, all said and done, it boils down to proper planning and hard work.
