Similarly, if you secure admission into a college that doesn’t have adequate lab facilities, your practical training sessions will suffer! In short, it is very important to choose the right college.

 

How to choose the right college

How to choose the right college, you may ask. There are certain parameters that will help you gauge the quality of a dental college. Here are some of those parameters and factors –

  • Quality of faculty
  • Infrastructure
  • Well equipped labs
  • Well stocked library
  • Other amenities (such as canteen, lodging etc)

 

While choosing a dental college, consider the above mentioned factors. Rate the college out of 10 against the factors mentioned above. If the college achieves a satisfactory rating, you may consider securing admission in that college.

 

Another method to gauge the quality of a college is by interviewing its students. The students of a college can give you accurate information about factors such as – quality of the faculty, availability of amenities, atmosphere of the campus etc. Their input can help you gauge the quality of a college.
