Dentistry Placements in India

Our dentistry placements in India are based at small local dentist practices and regional hospitals in and around Trivandrum.

The local practices are very similar to those you probably visit at home but the main difference will be the level of sophistication of the tools they use. Like your dental practice at home, the clinics are usually divided into general dentistry (check-ups, fillings, extractions etc) and orthodontics (crowns, bridges, etc) and you will have the opportunity to gain experience in both areas.

The supervisor of our dental projects is also a lecturer at the local dental school so during term time, Pre-university students will also be given the opportunity to accompany him to lectures during the day.

The clinics tend to be very quiet during the day, seeing only a handful of children or emergency cases. Most of the clinics’ clients visit the clinic in the evenings after work so this is when you will be busiest.

In the hospitals you will have the opportunity to work with more varied cases. Just like the smaller clinics, you will routinely be involved with dental cavities, filling decayed teeth with dental amalgam, etc, but you can also have the opportunity to experience oral and maxillofacial surgery. This includes:

The care of emergency patients with maxillofacial injuries
Paediatric dentistry
Straightening teeth and modification of midface and mandibular growths
Restorative dentistry work
Root canal therapy
Cosmetic dentistry
Surgery for impacted wisdom teeth,
The removal of cysts on the jaw, benign small tumours etc.
