Welcome to another detailed post about MDS admission and today I will be giving you the complete information about MDS admission in Delhi.
If you want to take MDS admission in private dental colleges in Delhi, then you must qualify for the NEET-MDS entrance exam. I used to get a lot of calls from students who are not qualified in NEET and want to take admission for MDS.
If you have missed the qualification marks by a few numbers, then I would advise you to wait till the last moment of counseling. Till now I had seen that the cut-off marks have been reduced when the seats are left vacant. 😀
Don’t lose hope!
Important: There are no private dental colleges in Delhi and the admission procedure I will be telling will be about private dental colleges in Delhi NCR which comes in Uttar Pradesh.

Why it is better to take MDS admission in Delhi NCR?
I will share what I felt and this is my personal experience. The major reasons are listed below.
- Fee Affordability: Comparing colleges in Bangalore, Tamil Nadu, etc the fee structure is really affordable and is worth what you pay.
- Easy Procedures: I had dealt with all the counseling procedures in India and felt that UP’s counseling procedures are simple and fast.
- Patient Flow: The patient flow to most of the colleges is very good and there colleges where the patient exposure is worst.
- Colleges: There are many colleges to choose from.
- Connectivity: Colleges in Delhi NCR won’t be much far from Delhi International Airport.
How to Choose the Best Dental College for MDS admission in Delhi?
There are around 8-10 dental colleges in Delhi that provide an MDS course. But all the colleges don’t provide the best facilities and academics.
There is a tight competition in the infrastructure and patient exposure in different colleges and it is a bit tough to select the best one out of it.
I would suggest you decide which department you would prefer for MDS admission in Delhi first. After you decide the department it would be easy to select a college.
In a few colleges, the Endo department will be good and in other orthodontics, the department might be good. And I have the complete updated information about each department in a college.
This makes me easy to guide through the complete procedure and help you secure an MDS seat in Delhi.
In this section, I will also list a few of the major things you must keep in mind while choosing a college for MDS admission in Delhi.
There is no use of joining any college which doesn’t have good patient exposure. To be frank, I won’t stick to the patient exposure, I would say the student-patient ratio must be good.
The number of patients available for each student must be the best.
HOD and Guide
The department must have a good HOD who must have the courage to give you different kinds of cases. I know many colleges, where the patient exposure is good but the HOD doesn’t allow students to take up all the cases. This is seen mostly in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department.
The top colleges in many parts of the country charge a very high fee, especially colleges in the south. If you are ready to migrate towards North India, then you can surely get the best deal.
I always focus on the Return on Investment factor. I would suggest you make a plan, where you can earn back whatever you have invested within 5 years after you complete your MDS course.
There are colleges that charge a hefty extra fee in the name of Material Fees, University fee etc. Please do enquire about everything before joining any college.
I had been dealing with dental colleges in Delhi NCR for the past 4 years and I had shared my experiences here. If you feel this post helped you, then please do share it with your friends and people in need.
