Total MDS Seats in India – 2024 – College and Department Wise

Hola, MDS Aspirants! Soon, you are going to appear for the NEET MDS exam in 2024, and in no time, you will also plan for an MDS seat! Getting an MDS seat in any one of the dental subjects seems easier compared to getting a seat in your preferred branch; targeting MDS counselling with a systematic plan can make a difference! After all, the branch and a good college are equally important as the degree! Isnt it? 😉

India has 329 dental institutes; out of them, 275 colleges offer MDS courses. The number is generous, but you should understand that not all will provide MDS in all branches. So, merely a few colleges exist that provide MDS programs in all nine dental specialties. Additionally, the huge number of students who will appear and qualify also significantly influences admissions. 

So, the chances of getting an MDS admission in your interested branch and at a good college are thinner than we think unless you plan your steps well.

If you need my guidance for MDS admission in the best colleges in your preferred department, then you can contact me at +91-8951242255.

Finally, I have reached the end of this blog! As you plan your MDS admission, a small suggestion is that getting an MDS seat in your branch of interest is important, but keeping two or three choices is always suggested. The allotment process is completely rank-based, but your preferences (branch, fee structure, location, etc.) impact your counselling process. 

In MDS, what you acquire during the course is very important; your dental career completely depends on that. Hence, when you choose your college, you should speculate on factors like daily patient exposure, the research conducted, the faculty members, and even the treatment modalities available in the institute. So, this information must have cleared the air for you regarding the total MDS seats in India. 

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below, and I will respond as soon as possible.

  1. Hello sir
    Good day !
    My daughter has completed BDS from Manipal college , Manipal . Now she has attended today’s NEET exam .
    However being a mother i have question that is it worth to complete MDS for a daughter , because gain 3 years of course will delay other priorities of life.

    Also is it possible to get admission for MDS private college. If yes , which college shall be preferred .

    • Dear Jayshree,

      Hope you are doing well.

      It is really worth doing MDS if your daughter is really interested. Because, in the coming years there will be some preferences given to MDS as the field of dentistry is transforming rapidly in terms of quality.

      Yes, you get an MDS seat in private college if your daughter qualifies NEET-MDS exam.

      And about the colleges, it completely depends on different factors like – department preference, budget, location etc.

      I will give you a call and explain in detail about the same.

      • Hello sir,
        Syeda here I hve completed my bds in 2017 I m preparing for my neet mds 2025, if I couldn’t get a seat in neet mds what is the fee structure for these 2 department omfs, endodontics in Hyderabad city

  2. Hello sir . My brother got AIR 1788 . Category UR state – MP .
    1. Is there any chance of govt. Dental college?
    2. Is PG from private college is better than opening your own clinic?

    • Dear Mr.Karthik,

      Congrats on qualifying NEET-MDS!

      1. Chances are very low for government dental college, but you can apply different quotas in states like Karnataka for clinical department in best college and there are chances for you to secure a seat.
      2. Let it be government or private, it completely depends on the knowledge and clinical skills which she acquire. I know who are successful as a dentist after doing MDS from Private dental college and also dentists who are not that successful after doing MDS from government dental college.

      Hope this helps!

  3. Hlo sir

    • Dear Preetinder,

  4. Hello Sir, my daughter secured 1140 AIR in NEET MDS 2024, what is the chance to get seat in Government College in any clinical branch.

    • Dear Sanjeev,

      She have scored really well. But the possibility to get into a government dental college for clinical branch is difficult, until and unless you have any special reservations.

  5. Hi Sir,

    She is from Nepal and gave the examination as an international candidate.

    Is there any chance of getting a good private college with this rank?
