Orthodontist Career Information

What an Orthodontist does

Abilities & Traits Required


10+2 with physics, chemistry, and biology makes one eligible to take the entrance for BDS, a 4 -year course. After BDS one can either do a diploma course or MDS in Orthodontia.


Orthodontics is one of the most lucrative branches of Dentistry as people these days are more appearance conscious.

But Dentistry is a game of experience and how well you manage to establish yourself. You'll begin as an apprentice with an established dentist for a pittance. But before we have one less dentist in the world, let me tell you that the pay increases with experience.

Once you earn a reputation as a orthodontist you could be charging anywhere between Rs. 500 to a few thousand rupees per patient in general and if you have private clinic, then the money can be much more. Basically your income eventually will depend on the number of patients you have.
