To become a Dentist in near future, firstly you need to complete your 11th and 12th standard with PCB stream i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

While studying 12th standard, you need to apply for medical entrance exams like NEET, AIIMS, etc.

After qualifying medical entrance exams, you will have to opt for BDS course in counselling.

After pursuing this course and undergoing practitioner, you will become Dentist.
