Top 20 Dental Colleges in India

With 1.3 billion people, India ranks second in the world population but produce the largest number of doctors globally. However, there is only one doctor per 1,700 citizens in India contrary to the World Health Organization's (WHO) minimum ratio of 1:1,000. With just 0.8 dentist per 10,000 population and a crunch of 10 lakh MBBS doctors, India still has a long way to reach the number of viable doctors to serve its population.

The country has over 1500 professional medical colleges and institutes in different specialized fields which are known for their world class amenities, modern technology, state of the art equipments, brilliant educators, top-class infrastructure and more. While the outlook for the healthcare industry is optimistic, it is very imperative for students to choose the best college that would strengthen and give a competitive edge to their career.

Recognizing the increasing demand of the dignified professions in the healthcare field and the need of students of getting into the right colleges, siliconIndia identifies the "Top 20 Dental Colleges in India" and "Top 25 MBBS Colleges in India". A distinguished panel of topmost healthcare experts, Doctors, Educationalists including siliconIndia's editorial board scrutinized the list of hundreds of medical institutes.

We hope our effort to create this comprehensive ranking would help the student community to make better decisions for their career.
