AUTHOR(S): Abhinav Jain, Narendra Padiyar U, Pragati Kaurani, Sudhir Meena, Devendra Pal Singh and Hemant Kumar Sharma
A recent report showed that there will be a high demand for prosthodontics treatment in the future. Prosthodontics training will continue to be a large component of the BDS curriculum, and therefore, dental education programs must continually evaluate their prosthodontics components to ensure that the curriculum always meets the current technical and therapeutic advances and the changing needs of the dental public.
Materials and Methods: A survey containing 10 questions were distributed to the students of 2ndbds of 3 dental colleges in Jaipur at the end of their pre clinical prosthodontic laboratory excercises.
Conclusion: This study concluded that 67% students were inclined towards taking prosthodontics as their choice of subject in their post graduation Remaining 25% were not certain regarding whether to take prosthodontics as a speciality of choice in the post graduation
Remaining 8% student said they wont take prosthodontics as their choice in the post graduation The reasons for the few students for not taking prosthodontics as their subject of choice is
1. Not adequate student faculty ratio
2. Knowledge gained by lecture is not adequate for preclinical prosthodontics
If we overcome these obstacle we can get more students to get prosthodontics as their choice for their post graduation
