I am Vishnu Nambiar, the Co-founder of this amazing blog and I am a professional counselor for dental students and dentists.

In this article, I will be giving you a complete idea about MDS fees in private colleges in Karnataka.

If you are looking for general information about fees in India, then you can go through my detailed article about the MDS fee structure in private colleges in India.

Apart from fees, I will be covering a few things in this article and you can navigate the article accordingly using the table of contents given below.

MDS Fee Private College Fees in Karnataka

Before I provide you with the fee structure for private dental colleges in Karnataka, I want you to know about the different types of Quotas and fee structures available in Karnataka.

Basics You Must Know

  • You must quality NEET-MDS to secure a seat in any dental college in India.
  • You must attend the counseling conducted by KEA or MCC to get into any private dental college in Karnataka.
  • There is nothing called direct admission without attending the counseling.

Types of Quotas You Must Know

There are a lot of quotas and you must know about a few of them where the fees vary. They are:

  • G Quota – Government Quota.
  • P Quota – Private Quota.
  • Management Quota.
  • NRI Quota.

There are a few other quotas, but these are the major ones for which you must know, as there is a fee structure change.

G Quota: The approximate fees for G quota will be around Rs.3,75,000.

P quota: The approximate P quota fees will be around Rs.6,78,000.

Mostly the MDS management seat and NRI seat fees will same. And it will cost you around Rs.10 lakhs to Rs.19 lakhs per annum depending on each college and department you are choosing.

Official Fees by KEA for MDS

How you can secure an MDS seat at a lower fee in Karnataka?

There are only two options to get MDS admission at low fees in Karnataka, they are:

  • Through G-Quota or P Quota – for which rank must be good enough to outrank others.
  • Wait for vacant seats which will be converted to management quota.

I will explain the second scenario, think even after the MOP-UP round of counseling, seats are vacant, and the college management can give to any qualified candidate who has registered in the KEA counseling.

At that time, depending on the demand of the department and college, you can try to negotiate with the college management to secure the seat.

Now you might be thinking, how you could do that.

You can either contact the management directly, which the college won’t be ready to negotiate much. Either you can contact a consultant, or you can take my service in which I will be helping you out in securing an MDS seat in Karnataka.

You must be thinking, why you must go for my service, right?

No problem, I will just explain to you why mine is the best career counseling service for dental courses in India – in the next section.

How to Choose a College with Low Fees?

I have seen many students who are only attracted to the low fee structure. But, just think this degree will be your bread and butter for the coming years.

You have to learn and earn with that and never compromise too much in this.

So I would like you to know, a few tips you must keep in your mind while choosing a college for MDS admission.

Affiliation & Track Record

The college must be affiliated with a reputed university and recognized by the Dental Council of India. There are colleges that are affiliated with universities, which don’t conduct their exams on time and the course of 3 years takes around 4 years.


I am not talking about thousands of patients. A decent dental college means, they will have 150-250 patients per day. And the student-to-patient ratio must be better.

There are colleges that have 250 patients, but the number of students in each batch will be 8. That means there are 24 PGs in that department and there are very less chances for you to get special cases and patients with an OPD of 250 per day.

I think you got the point! You must clearly enquire about it.

Infrastructure and Technology

I am not talking about fancy buildings, sports complexes, and fully air-conditioned colleges. The college must have all the necessary equipment and materials to fulfill the student’s needs.

The college must also be updated with the latest technologies which are coming in the field of dentistry.

Especially for departments like orthodontics and all as there are many updations being introduced in the treatment techniques.

Teaching and Faculties

You have the patients and the infrastructure to treat them, but no one to guide you. There are many colleges that boast about having faculties passed out from AIIMS, KGMC, etc. But they might not be good at teaching.

Choose colleges that are ready to teach you and upskill the students.

TORCHER – Management and Faculty

Choose a college wisely…

There are colleges that are well known due to their marketing and branding strategies. But, once you pay the fees and join the college, they might show their true colors.

And there are faculties who are purely interested in irritating the students rather than teaching.

I know you might feel this to be very silly, but you have done your BDS, you know the truth. 😛


This completely depends on your financial background. Go for colleges in which you feel the ROI or Return on Investment will be good.


There are parents who are a bit concerned about the location, especially parents of female students.
