Currently, there are 310 dental colleges in the country out of which 292 are privately owned and only 40 are run by the government.1 As a result, thousands of dentists are coming out every year with very low prospectus of job. In 1970, there were only 8000 dental students graduated from Indian Dental Institutions, the figure was 30,570 in year 2012.

In rural areas, the dentist population ratio is very less as compared to urban areas. In year 2004, India had one dentist per 10,000 people in urban areas and one dentist per 2.5 lakh people in the rural areas.(current statistical data not available)

Very less number of posts are available for dentists in the government sector. Only 5% graduated dentists are working in the government sector.Self-practice in urban areas is not very easy due to saturation of the dental market. In rural areas, private clinics are not viable because of less awareness for oral health among the rural population. Dental graduates are facing serious financial constraint. News of suicidal attempts by dentists is also not rare now days. Unemployment not only psychologically affects the person but also promotes crime in society. Unemployed dentist are left with no choice but to leave their profession and work in call centers or commit suicide.

If the present situation continues, there will be more than 1 lakh dentists oversupply by the year 2020

Government should plan to create new posts for dental graduates in government hospitals and in Primary Health Centres​.

Dental graduates of minimally trained in BLS can be very helpful to the medical personnel also.

Let us start with our state.please sign the petition and let the government know about the condition and the benefits of employing dentists.
