In Pakistan quacks are treating the patients and there is still a great demand of qualified dentists in every city of Pakistan. Due to shortage of qualified dentists in the country almost all the BDS degree holders get job in some public or private hospital. But majority of dental doctors prefer private practice due to huge income possibilities. Some years back, it was a difficult task for Pakistani students to become a dentist but know a days number of private dental colleges have opened in different cities of Pakistan.

Many students are also doing BDS from China. But if you get admission in BDS program in China then kindly confirm from PMDC about the authenticity of dental college or university.
