    Re: Expected salary in Tamil Nadu government hospital for BDS candidate?

    Hey aspirant,
    First let me brief you about BDS course and it prospectus
    Actually BDS is a Bachelor degree in Dental Sciences and involves the identification and treating dental related problems
    And admission to this course as you know would be through a medical entrance exam that is conducted by the central or state government
    And since dental study has a lot of scope and job opportunities both in INDIA and Abroad, you have options of either going in for a job directly after BDS or for higher studies (in INDIA/ABROAD) like MDS etc.

    As in any other industry , in the healthcare idustry too you can find a suitable job in both Government and private sectors (hospitals/clinics etc)

    In the PRIVATE sector jobs you can look for opportunities in private hospitals (Specifically Dental Hospitals) and apply for an entry level job
    Entry level jobs dont give you huge salary but a formidable salary can be expected from the institution
    However as you gain experience and with years of working for that organization, you can look out for an even higher pay , and this again depends on the institution you work for
    And if you feel you want to be an independent dentist, you have the option of gaining a good amount of experience with the hospitals/clinics (for a brief period of time, say 4-5 years) and then start your own clinic .
    Also another vibrant option is TEACHING, as some dental colleges offer jobs for BDS graduates the post of LECTURERS etc
    An important point to be noted is that, if you hold a MASTERS DEGREE, you have even much colourfull opportunity, as the salary you can expect and your designation will also be better than those with only a BDS degree.
    MDS graduates can also participate in the R&D(research & development) activities of a particular institution / hospital

    A government sector job in some respect is much safer and better than a private sector job
    This is due to few obvious reasons like
    Better Salary
    Allowances and also job security is guaranteed
    and apart from this , you also get promotion and rise in position (with reference to the designations etc)
    The suitable places where you can find yourself a government job are
    Public hospitals and Healthcare clinic
    Military / defence
    Railways etc

    Regarding the salary package
    As i already mentioned the initial/entry level jobs dont offer you huge pays as BDS is a Undergraduate degreee program
    In order to obtain an increase in salary, you also have an option of increasing your grade, therby your salary also increaes
    In a government institution, you can write a grade exam, while in service and upon clearing those exams your grade increases and so does your pay scale also increases linearly
    As a fresher you can expect a salary that could be anything between 10,000 to 15,000 and this again increases based on the experience
    NOTE: EXPERIENCE plays a very vital role in your field

    here i would also like to mention about the opportunity and gains experienced by a MDS graduate
    (i have mentioned this just to give an idea about the extra salary you might get if you are an MDS graduate)
    As a FRESHER (MDS) you may expect a salary to be anywhere between : 25,000 to 30,000 and this is performance based too!

    Apart from this i would like to give you additional information regarding dental industry
