Consider Singapore? Dentistry in NUS? Cheap like hell if you take the MOE's tuition grant.

Try not to do it in Malaysia, it will be a waste, trust me

Anyone heard of DSAs? Dental surgical assistants? Apparently, there is a demand for them. Spoke to 2 dentists recently, Dr. Nathan and Dato' Dr. Sharifah, at a dentistry conference and they confirmed the demand.

DSA is a certificate level programme only but it costs in the region of RM20K for a year.

AHa! Dentists! Finally!

I wanna be a dentist cos really admire dentists...they can save lives y'know? The good ones can...almost like a doctor...almost...only you are more pro around the head area. In France they don't let you be a dentist until you get a degree in medicine. I think.

There are three local universities offering dentistry...UM, UKM and USM. USM is in Kelantan...the dental faculty anyway.

Then local private...PIDC of course, and AIMST (Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology) in Kedah...AIMSt one costs about rm210 000 tuition fees...plus additional costs around rm220 000. Then add accommodation about rm25 000 (5 years, 450-500 a month). So adds up to about rm250 000 including homesick times when you hop up a bus back to KL...ta da! Rough estimate...

Then you can go Indonesia...also...quite cheap. I heard.

So, guys, why do you want to be dentists? I want to be a dentist cos I'm interested in putting smiles on people's faces (I'm a terrible standup comedian cry.gif , so gotta find someway else)...I'm most interested in implantology, you know, screwing on a tooth into the bone using titanium screws which bind to the bone (osseointegration) (Or something) Darn interesting! And think about it...you're seventy...your teeth fall out...then you stick a tooth in and voila! you can eat Honeyed Pork Spare ribs cool2.gif ...Since the population is getting older...people's teeth are falling out...well, I guess by the time I specialize into implantology I'll have plenty of patients! Mwahahahaha...everyone'll thank me one day...

Yaya...so all potential dentists out there...GUD LUCK man...give those thousands of medical doctors a run for their money and go ahead pursuing your dream...there won't be quite so many of us...Not that I have anything against medical doctors, they're alright in their way...only everytime I ask a straight A student what they want to become it's always a doctor...I wish there were more variety...more ambition...what happened to the artists and racecar drivers of the yesteryears? Bleah...anyway, another good thing about being a dentist is that it's less likely you'll kill anyone...worst come to worst you kill the patient's nerve endings...then they sue you, but then its much better than being sued because somebody died. Better on the emotions too.

dont choose india!
if can choose somewhere close to malaysia, or at least country in which there is 'student life'. This course aint short

If u aim to become a master, u better be prepare. iianm to be master is prosthodontic, u need to study extra 4 years.

So BDS (5years) + serving malaysia boleh! (3 years) + master (4 years) = u imagine

why not try apply for scholarship? i'm not sure which local groups are open for education funding, but its still worth a try..
number one reason for students not going for further study "no money no go,mahhh"...
if thats the case,then how did our own dentists managed to get where they are today?

but if finance is not ur problem, then i dont know what to say... dun tell me parents dun let him travel oversea?

haha...really agree with U...DR's income mostly come from dispensing medicine (private clinic)...so when the system change, their income myb reduced...but for dentist, most of the income come from the services....n for the instrument and tool, u charge it as u buy it for every patient (except dental unit)....there's also more than implantology, theres orthodontics (im sure U know, it becomes fashion now...even model in CLEO wears it!!!huhu), prosthodontology (more on removable denture, myb implant to)...n me, i think i want to further on oral surgery (5 YEARS MORE!!!!)...then oral maxillofacial surgery...just my plan tho...may need more time and money absolutely

What about Mahsa? No good at all? as i know only Mahsa provide 5 years study locally... although IMU as well... just the fee is almost half million... Then AIMST, PIDC, Manipal these 3 colleges are twinning program... although PIDC quite cheap among the colleges... is my information correct??? please do let me know if there are any mistake...

that way you dont have to have a license in malaysia.

i think all included is bout 4 or 3 years (including 1 year housemanship)

pay usually around 3k+...around the same as that of doctors but lack the oncall allowance of course (but you dont have to work like crazy)
if not enough, can do locum also i think.

wen u go private can get 5k-8k easily working for someone else

lol, most people are busy dreaming bout owning their own practice..
that they forget the costs of buying dental equipment , overhead, suffering losses in the beginning if no one knows bout you, etc..

people say they wanna see the smiles on the faces of patients , blah blah..
how can someone smile when youre gonna charge them rm70 just for a tooth extraction.. Lol.

from what i know, u still need to serve in gov..but its all depend on many factor like which grad from which uni, how long u have been working, and in which country...worst condition u need to sit for an exam from dental council..

for dentistry u only need to serve for 3years (no housemanship/internship)..its not the same as doctor as we got pay as general dentist, not intern..1 year in rural area and 2 years near ur place. the basic pay is rm2700 if im not mistaken..got other allowance which can make it to rm3800 (if you serve in rural area or west malaysia)..now i heard that the dental association asking the MOHE to increase the pay to rm5k..same as doctor...dentist work in normal office our (not 36 hours like doctor) but they also got on call..FYI dentist should handle head and neck injury as they are 'mastered' in those area..

in my oppinion, if u just grad from dentistry, just worked in gov 1st..myb for 5-10 years..u need to save money 1st as the dental unit cost so much...for a good one can cost around rm500k!!!n only 1 wont be enough...at least two...if u want to be orthodontist, at least 3...hehe...then u oso need x-ray..myb now its not yet compulsory but i heard it will be later...as each patient should have at least one panoramic radiograph for forensic database or law...then u oso need the thrust and 'publisity' from patient...huhu....if u are a good dentist, they will follow u everywhere u go...the best thing being a dentist is u are working office hours..for the lab work, u can send it to technicion..so u can do locum....

i dont relly know about russia..but if in indonesia, its all depend on university and most importantly you yourself...if u still have malaysian typical mentality, everything need to be spoon fed, then u will learn nothing here...but if u the type that curious about evrything, want to try all method, either new or conventional..then i think here is like heaven. you can met all variety of cases, and the best part it, if u want to treat them, the consulant will help u..u wont get that in europe or Aus..i heard that u cant even touch the patient..here u can even do minor surgery like odontectomy..which u cant really do in msia...huhu...so many experience and skill to explore!!!but that just me..most of the student just want to finish the requirement and just go back...

A lot of people have the mindset that Indonesia is not a good country to go for your further studies. How far is this true? How is the tuition fee like in Indonesia? What university are you admitted?

for me, those people dont have a clear view about health education...for undergraduate level, the most important thing to have in a university is the faculty (prof, dr, lecturer) and the patients. all the fancy2 infrastructure might be needed but not to extend the most high-end one...coz u wont even use it in msia...so what for u learn using the high-tech machine when u cant even use the conventional one..for me, good dr should be able to make good diagnosis and proper treatment but best dr are those who can work on any condition with any instrument provided. either u are on an airplane or stuck in the midle of a jungle...huhu...so in 3rd world country like indonesia, u can learn it all..they still got the CT-scan, MRI all but not the latest one i think...the best thing is, u can treat the patient by ur self..there are so many patient, that one of my friend deliver 12 baby in a day!!!which i heard it is the requirement for whole course in UKM..if u want to continue post-graduate, then u need the latest technology to help ur research.

theres also downside of it..corruption here is really bad, that u can easily pass ur exam buy paying certain amount of money...not all uni tho..then all those nasty crisis between indo-malaysia can affect u..especially now. with manohara cases, ambalat and oso the maid..

i dont really sure the fees now...im studying in Universitas Padjadjaran, Bandung..last time i heard, it cost rm180k for medicine and 140k for dentistry. im a dental student, and during my time (2005) the fees is only rm95k..and the cost of living is so cheap (around rm400 a month alrealy luxurious)...now rm1k per month oso very hard to live here..

i hope some of you can help me in this.
i'm in quite a desperate situation.
i want to do dentistry and initially my plan was to apply for Aimst.
i just finished my alevels and my results only comes out in August and Aimst only accepts actual results. so thats out.

IMU is too expensive for my family to afford and even PIDC too.It's not that cheap to study in India, for my family at least.

so now I'm left with Indonesia which is under inspection.

so i really dont know what to do.

Assuming all dental institutions offer dentistry at the same cost, will you choose your institution based on quality of lecturers or credibility of the degree in terms of recognition?
e.g. IMU, AIMST and MAHSA offer dentistry at the same cost, which would you choose?

And for working dentists, what does your cert do besides indicating you have graduated and is now allowed to begin practicing? Whenever i go to the dentist, i don't look at his cert although it might be hanging somewhere in his clinic. This might sound like a silly question but, how is IMU dental degree different compared to MAHSA/AIMST dental degree?

From what i heard, IMU/MAHSA/AIMST dental degrees are not yet recognised. Do correct me if i'm wrong.

I'm planning to do dentistry but not sure which institution to go to. Hopefully some of you can share your opinions.

Thx!

myb i also not know for sure...but from what i remember, IMU is already recognized...MAHSA and AIMST not yet...

for me, i look for better system, quality faculty....u will learn and gain more from it...glorious name just to satisfy your patients later..but they will not complain if your work is good rite?

what i heard from my father is,its all depend on individual..got student grad from ireland but can do nothing in intership...then also got student grad from indonesia and russia but work are same level as MO or DO...so its all depend on u actually...if u search more, u will learn and gain more..typical m'sian student just want to 'cukup makan'...just complete the sylabus and requirement...

Basically, MAHSA offer a dental degree from Trinity University, Indonesia. AIMST and IMU are offering their own degree. Actually, no much different between these two degree but just name. Btw, they are the same. icon_rolleyes.gif No matter which degree you are granted will end you up as a dentist. Cheers!

IMU's dental degree not yet fully recognized by MDC but soon. Don't really worry about the recognition of critical courses which conducted by local institution like medicine,pharmacy and dentistry.

Our government does not have the gut to de-recognize or not to recognize it unless that particular institution really stupid. tongue.gif

Im a A level graduate and im intending to become a dentist in the future. I just called up IMU and asked abt the application for dentistry feb intake year 2010 and they told me its closed so now im really confused on going where to study. I'm personally considering university gadjah mada in indonesia as i've checked thru the internet and found out that the uni is pretty reputable in indonesia in comparison to other universities. Also, i've found out that hungary universities are very good too in the field of dentistry, having international recognition from countries like canada and the US. Does anyone here knw anything abt this? please tell me more if possible. wud really appreciate it. thanks.

I may have asked this before but have not settled on a particular uni yet.

My mum is asking me to go to IMU because she feels its more reliable compared to MAHSA.
The problem is, I personally heard from a dentist friend that IMU is way overpriced in terms of fees and I myself agree on that point.

MAHSA on the other hand, is affordable but the facilities and environment is nothing compared to the likes of IMU and AIMST.

At the end of the day, as long as i graduate from either IMU or MAHSA, i can start my career as a dentist.
Since both degrees enables me to be a dentist, why should i pay almost double the amount in fees.

Really confused and lost now. Im about to complete my Alevel program this coming June so I only have a couple of months to decide. Intake for MAHSA is August while intake for IMU is in Feb.

Someone care to offer me some advice. Thanks in advance.

Don't you think that's just ridiculous? I'm also an A-Level student and I was seriously considering AIMST uni to do either MBBS or BDS. I feel that A-Levels students are not treated fairly in this case. We prove our capabilities by achieving outstanding results yet we are neglected just because we did not complete our pre-U @ AIMST. I truly wish that the Medical and Dental faculty of AIMST uni would rethink about their decision in not accepting A-Levels students into the BDS and MBBS programme. I know besides AIMST the options available for BDS or MBBS in Malaysia are as follows:

Bachelor of Dental Surgery (MBBS) - IMU
- Penang International Dental College
- Mahsa
- Manipal

Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) - IMU
- MSU
- University Kuala Lumpur Royal College of Medicine Perak
- Manipal
- Mahsa
- Penang Medical College
- Monash

it's up to them to decide who they accept.........and they will obviously prefer their own foundation students......

in any case, a-levels is NOT a msian pre-u qualification, and it is also NOT accepted in ipta generally.........

Yea true. The reason i chose A-Level actually is cause i figured it may give me a solid foundation as the subjects taught is rather deep (covers more than most foundation programmes) in comparison to many other pre-Us. But i'm not exactly sure if it may be the right option for me now. I know my friends who graduated from MBBS and BDS course has told me that A-Levels is a good "test" to see if one is qualified enough to study medicine or dentistry - they are implying that if a student cannot cope with A-Levels, its an indication that he or she should not be doing medicine or dentistry as MBBS and BDS would without a doubt would be much more difficult than A-Levels. This was another reason why i did A-levels. Wanted to see if i can cope with a difficult course like MBBS or BDS.

Alright its ok, now that AIMST is out i guess i have to consider other options.

Same here. I'm considering MMMC for either MBBS or BDS. But unfortunately not many threads in lowyat forum talks about Malacca Manipal Medical College. Ironically since the BDS and MBBS fees at MMMC is reasonably affordable plus Manipal is known to be a reputable medical and dental school.

Anyone have any details on MMMC? Lecturers? Studying environment? I came across a thread at lowyat forum and it seems that the lecturers in the medical faculty is kinda strict (or rather too strict sad.gif ) with the medical students. How true is this rumour? (i know its not good to 'bad talk' a uni but would love some clarification on this)

Anyone doing Manipal dentistry 5 years or (2+3) twinning?

I need some feedback regarding the course, facilities and institution.

Manipal (2+3) twinning just started not long ago if im not mistaken. Some people said the 5 years there would be more beneficial.

Right now finishing up my A Level program and i gotta decide whether to do Manipal 5 years, Manipal (2+3) twinning or MAHSA.

Any latest feedback on MAHSA is also appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

hi dreambig91, im also an a-level student and will be completing my A-Levels soon. I'm also thinking of doin either med or dental. As for dentistry, I've heard a little from some of my friends so this is what I can say. If financial supply is not a problem go for IMU. If u are looking for somewhere more affordable + reasonably good quality, choose one of these:
1. Manipal Melaka Medical College (First 2 years completed in Manipal Uni in India)
2. Penang International Dental College (First 2 years will be completed at Vinayaka Mission University, India)
3. AIMST uni

I'm not too sure about Mahsa but I would say that friends have confirm these 3 are among the best + most affordable dental course in Malaysia biggrin.gif - that is for PRIVATE universities. Of course government unis like USM and UM is good and cheap but its not an option for those who have completed A-Levels haha

I have a friend doing nursing in Mahsa and from the feedback i get from her is that Mahsa's management is very bad. Class schedules are always changing at the last minute. Holidays are also changed with very short notice. but this is for the nursing course. so im not sure if the dentistry course is under the same management. If it is then it's gonna suck. Besides, Mahsa college is situated in a horrible area la. Parking will costs a bomb if u drive everyday and traffic is just plain bad 24-7.

I'm going to to India this April for PIDC's dental twinning course with VMU. FYI JPA scholars are sent to VMU for dentistry. PIDC's management are very considerate when it comes to paying fees and stuff like that. AS for Manipal's dentistry course i've got no info about it.

Another good option is AIMST in Kedah. It might be one of the more expensive ones compared to Mahsa and PIDC but they are fully equipped for dentistry. I would've gone to Aimst last september if there wasnt any political issues with the MIC. Parents were afraid that with MIC being unstable AIMST uni might be affected too.

I enquire on the total cost fees from Penang International Dental College and this is what they said. Total course fee is RM220,000. And this is inclusive of the accommodations for your first two years in India. And nope currently the only option for you is to complete your phase 1 (which is the first two years) in India. If you want to know more you can call them or send them an e-mail smile.gif

I came across a thread at lowyat forum and it seems that the lecturers in the medical faculty is kinda strict (or rather too strict  sad.gif ) with the medical students. How true is this rumour? (i know its not good to 'bad talk' a uni but would love some clarification on this)

Hey there... am planning to do dentistry in manipal for the upcoming sept intake...yes it is reasonably priced as compared to ahemm IMU...which boast state of the art facilities...I have personally been to manipal in karnataka..and the facilities there are pretty impressive...so far I've heard from my cousin who is currently doin medic in manipal...the lecturers for medic are quite strict especially with attendance and punctuality but otherwise its pretty okay...idk bout the dental course bt my fren who part of the pioneering batch sez the lecturers are quite laid back as compared to the medic ones...as for the environment...to be honest it would take quite some time to warm up to the place bt otherwise its okay...as for malacca i stay here infact right across from the college;)...and it's really nice and modern...u should come over and see;)...just look for miss sheila at the admissions office she'll guide you on the application process...gud luck!!

I have a friend doing nursing in Mahsa and from the feedback i get from her is that Mahsa's management is very bad. Class schedules are always changing at the last minute. Holidays are also changed with very short notice. but this is for the nursing course. so im not sure if the dentistry course is under the same management. If it is then it's gonna suck. Besides, Mahsa college is situated in a horrible area la. Parking will costs a bomb if u drive everyday and traffic is just plain bad 24-7.

I'm going to to India this April for PIDC's dental twinning course with VMU. FYI JPA scholars are sent to VMU for dentistry. PIDC's management are very considerate when it comes to paying fees and stuff like that. AS for Manipal's dentistry course i've got no info about it.

Another good option is AIMST in Kedah. It might be one of the more expensive ones compared to Mahsa and PIDC but they are fully equipped for dentistry. I would've gone to Aimst last september if there wasnt any political issues with the MIC. Parents were afraid that with MIC being unstable AIMST uni might be affected too.

AIMST their tuition fee is cheaper compared with Mahsa university college

Oh.. I'll apply after i finish my A-Levels cuz i still haven't complete my A-Lvls yet smile.gif . I am curious though to know if MMMC is strict in their interview. I have always wonder what kind of questions would they ask students in interview for those who wanna do dental. Cause the interviews for MBBS are quite typical. Not sure if its the same for BDS

Hello there, my daughter is now doing foundation in science in SURYA College (Sister college of PIDC). As I know, she will be sent to VINAYAKI MISSIONS University after she'd completed her foundation for one year. But as I google, I found that VINAYAKI MISSION University in India is de-regconised by the India Government. Will Malaysia Government regcognise SURYA College and VINAYAKI MISSION University and regcognise my daughter as a certified Dentist in future? Any Opinion? Please Help. Thank you biggrin.gif

Hi there, you can check out the Malaysian Dental Council (MDC) website and it is stated that the Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) programme by Vinayaka Mission University is indeed recognised. Check out this url http://mdc.moh.gov.my/modules/xt_conteudo/index.php?id=20. For your assurance you can also visit the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) website. Penang International Dental College (PIDC) BDS 2+3 twinning programme with Vinayaka Mission University is stated there which means their dental degreee is 100% recognise by Malaysia. so, no worries biggrin.gif


Added on March 26, 2010, 5:34 pmAnybody currently studying at Manipal Melaka Medical College? I heard from a friend that beginning 2011, MMMC is restricting their Bachelor of Dental Surgery seat to only 40 seats per intake, that is very low considering that they have only 1 intake per year for their BDS. How true is this rumour? Just like some clarification on this. Thank you.

there is a disturbing trend, that medical and dental schools that are not recognised in their own country are training students from, and recognised by msia........this should not be the case........

in fact, in many countries, they would not recognise any qualification not also recognised by the home country.........for obvious reasons........

msia boleh........

Oh, Thanks a lot for the link and your reply smile.gif Appreciate that. Well, I would like ask whether VINAYAKA MISSION university is better or Manipal University is better in terms of like environment, cleanliness etc? Heard that Manipal's qualification is higher. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks~ Oh, Im helping my mum to reply this, hehe.

I'm not exactly sure about the environment in these 2 places (Salem and Manipal) as I've not been there myself before. In fact I've never even be to India my whole life! Haha.. But I do have friends who are studying in Salem and Manipal and this is what i heard. For the Vinayaka Mission Uni, it seems that the campus is located very far from town areas - need to travel bout 1 to 2 hours to reach to the nearest town. And it can be a little boring staying there (but it is not a prob if u are the type of person who dun mind staying indoors and not goin out! lol.. But personally im not sure if i can endure that for 2 years biggrin.gif)

As for Manipal, i heard from friends that the campus in India is huge! And their facilities also is pretty impressive. But the problem is these friends of mine are medical students so they don't know much about the Dental Faculty in Manipal. But I heard that the weather in India can be quite hot so do be prepared for that.

Truthfully, I'm not really sure which uni to study as going to India for 2 years can sound kinda scary (cause I've never been away from home for that long! haha). Moreover there is a high chance one may get a massive culture shock when studying there cause the life there is very very diff. So if you are financially stable, do consider IMU. Yea though many has come to complain on their unreasonable fees for dentistry, u have to admit they are a good uni. So if you are thinking of studying dentistry maybe u can also put IMU as an option. But make sure you study super hard so that u wont have to repeat papers and pay more money haha..

I'm planning to enroll into BDS programme this year too =]

Can anyone please enlighten me the fees for MMMC twinning manipal malacca dentistry programme? (I had previously asked for the medical programme but since Malaysiqa have 20++ uni offering medicine, thus i guess it would be a big problem during our year of graduation of medical career) I heard that it is new and the building of Dentistry in Malacca is still under construstion..

Why do I know that it isn't erected up yet? Because manipal malacca is my neighbour rclxm9.gif

if you're considering which uni to put as first choice...IMO, UM is more established hence u should put UM as first choice, after all its the first dental school in malaysia. But personally to me, i think if i can enter public university, it wont matter to me which one i'm offered as long as i got a place in public uni for dentistry.

i have a question. i just finished my last paper for my A level programme today and i have a feeling my results may end up AAD.

Now if i were to get a seat and the conditional offer is CCC for manipal, how will they see my result?

will the AA outweigh the D or a D is simply unacceptable?

as for the Q u asked, i cant answer u cos i don knw and i doubt anybody here knows unless that 'anybody' is someone from the student recruitment department in MMMC. but no harm trying to apply, let them do the choosing...just pray hard that u can get in... biggrin.gif

I already got my ALE results and to my disbelief, i managed to get an offer from IMU. MMMC however claims that the seats are fully occupied and i'm placed 2nd on the waiting list.

SO, any seniors from IMU willing to prepare me for what i am about to face next year when i enroll in the FEB 11 BDS programme?

Any advice is very much appreciated. Thanks!

hey dreambig91, u got an offer letter from IMU for BDS? Wow.. I enquired from IMU they said that the BDS seats are very limited and the application is highly competitive - they even said for A-Levels you'll need AAB or ABB to stand a chance to enter. U must have done very well for ur pre-U.

I do wan to ask though are you planning to get a loan? Cuz if i ever apply for IMU i really dun know how to pay the fees for BDS - it cost a bomb. Until now I still can't figure out why does IMU charge so much for their local BDS? The total cost is like studying pharmacy in Australia

dentistry involves many expensive equipments la. u do know that one of their chairs already cost u 120k? and for a relatively good dentistry uni in malaysia like IMU, the ratio is 2-3 students per chair. so if they take in 50 students there must be at least 25 chairs, it would cost them about 3 million.

if u wan cheap cheap then go aimst lo, 4-5 students sharing one chair IINM. how to learn like that?

So that means the dentistry in IMU is really worth it then? If it is i dun mind applying after i finish my a-levels next year. Cuz i'm in a really crappy college now. i dun wan to repeat my mistake by goin into a crappy uni and suffer for 5 years (especially if the degree is such a professional one like dentistry). I'm willing to pay provided i get the proper training and education

So that means the dentistry in IMU is really worth it then? If it is i dun mind applying after i finish my a-levels next year. Cuz i'm in a really crappy college now. i dun wan to repeat my mistake by goin into a crappy uni and suffer for 5 years (especially if the degree is such a professional one like dentistry). I'm willing to pay provided i get the proper training and education

of all the IPTS that offers dentistry, yes its one of the best(u dun have much choices either). biggrin.gif

Yea there's only 5 private dental schools in Malaysia. What about Manipal Melaka? Is their Bachelor of Dental Surgery good? Know anyone studyin dental there? Cause i can't seem to find any MMMC dental students.

I believe the students would give a more accurate description of the quality of the dental programme rather than asking the uni. Cuz if i ever ask the uni itself, for sure they would say its good

I already got my ALE results and to my disbelief, i managed to get an offer from IMU. MMMC however claims that the seats are fully occupied and i'm placed 2nd on the waiting list.

SO, any seniors from IMU willing to prepare me for what i am about to face next year when i enroll in the FEB 11 BDS programme?

Any advice is very much appreciated. Thanks!

are you sure you got a confirmed offer from IMU or u just got an offer to be interviewed??? COs u have to pass the interview before you are confirmed a place in IMU. it's two completely different things you know.

I'm not exactly sure about the environment in these 2 places (Salem and Manipal) as I've not been there myself before. In fact I've never even be to India my whole life! Haha.. But I do have friends who are studying in Salem and Manipal and this is what i heard. For the Vinayaka Mission Uni, it seems that the campus is located very far from town areas - need to travel bout 1 to 2 hours to reach to the nearest town. And it can be a little boring staying there (but it is not a prob if u are the type of person who dun mind staying indoors and not goin out! lol.. But personally im not sure if i can endure that for 2 years  biggrin.gif)

As for Manipal, i heard from friends that the campus in India is huge! And their facilities also is pretty impressive. But the problem is these friends of mine are medical students so they don't know much about the Dental Faculty in Manipal. But I heard that the weather in India can be quite hot so do be prepared for that.

Truthfully, I'm not really sure which uni to study as going to India for 2 years can sound kinda scary (cause I've never been away from home for that long! haha). Moreover there is a high chance one may get a massive culture shock when studying there cause the life there is very very diff. So if you are financially stable, do consider IMU. Yea though many has come to complain on their unreasonable fees for dentistry, u have to admit they are a good uni. So if you are thinking of studying dentistry maybe u can also put IMU as an option. But make sure you study super hard so that u wont have to repeat papers and pay more money haha..

If your 3 subjects are Chemistry, Biology and Maths then yes u can  biggrin.gif

Salem town is only max 30 minutes away from campus!!!
wherever you choose, it solely depends on your own hardwork!
IMU and PIDC teaching styles are completely opposite.
IMU = Self Study ,lots of distractions , high living cost
PIDC = Lots of lectures just like high school , not much distractions, super low living cost and with a whole lot of Malaysian's living together life in India isn't that difficult actually.


Added on August 24, 2010, 1:26 amYeap.. Have been there for the past 4 months.

Personally, I am enjoying myself in India.

Lecturers are pretty good except for biochem but that's probably due to the subject being really dry. I dont think lecturers play a huge role anyway, for a course like dentisty 80% depends on your own effort and determination to study anyway. Be prepared to do lots of drawings cos they love diagrams and neat answers for exams. You need really good practical skills for carving and dental material classes.

Facilities are just so-so. Cant expect much when you're India but basic essentials are ensured like clean distilled water, aircond (the local student hostel DO NOT have airconds), fridge, fully furnished room (cupboard, bed, sheets, chairs, study tables), you even have a cleaner lady who will be there everyday to clean your rooms if u want to. Transport is also provided in the morning and at the end of class. even if u miss the bus it's only a 10-15 minute walk back to the hostel. Wireless internet is sucky at times but still more than enough to survive.

Text books and dental materials are all provided when u arrive.
Whereas for food, if u can take spicy food then you wouldn't have a problem at all, if you do not then your choices are limited but still bareable.

Coming to India for dentistry has been the best decision i made. I have no regrets at all.. The distraction level here is very low so you will concentrate on your studies. The huge diff between IMU and PIDC is that in IMU it's pretty much a SELF STUDY style of teaching where you only have few hours of lectures a week. On the other hand, in PIDC you will have lectures from 9am-4pm from monday to friday.

I would say that almost the whole of my batch does not regret choosing coming to India and even two of them transfered from IMU to PIDC.

btw.. town IS NOT 1-2 hours away. Town is only a 30 minutes Auto (taxi) ride. LIVING COST in india is super cheap. meals here are super cheap and you can eat without having to think twice about the price.


just post up any other questions and i'll answer them when i'm free.

I'm considering Dentistry/ Medicine in the Melaka-Manipal program.
I'm having difficulty in choosing between the both of them.
My pre-U results should be out by dec 2010, then I would need to apply.

However, any advise for prospective students in Manipal?
Any negative/positive remarks about Manipal or the program?

The reason is the dentistry is a new course for most of the private universities, according to my dean Prof Toh, IMU dentistry is consider earliest dentistry course provided by private universities, and our earliest batch is going to finish their year 3 by the end of this year. So there are no proven graduates from any private universities yet, so in the end only 3 private IPTA are recognized

Actually i think that the most important thing is u get a good results as well as perform well during the interview. I got few batch mates actually apply around dec and early jan but they get in. What happen is that they apply for PDS option but in the end what they get is local program plus pending PDS option. So just in case someone who is in PDS option drop out or anything special happens(god knows), they will replace them and their offer become PDS option.

Hey guys, anyone studying dentistry or know anyone studyin dentistry in Manipal Melaka Medical College? I know their BDS programme is relatively new - this year's batch of students was only the 2nd batch. I am curious to know the quality of their dental programme as I would be applying for it next year. I heard rumors of students being allowed to buy exam papers before the exam at the Manipal campus in India. How true is it? I'm not here to bad-talk on MMMC - just want to clarify.

Cause if the dental programme in MMMC is lousy I guess the ONLY good dental school in Malaysia is IMU which is definitely one of my first option if not for their crazy fees - cant afford half a million for my degree

On their open day, the undergraduates taking you around really try very hard to impress you with their so called acquired knowledge and more than happy to answer any questions that you have.

Pls double verify as some of them may be bulls...g you.

If your sis is thinking of studying in government uni she has to either go for local matrix or STPM and score really really high for either one of this pre-U - dental seats in public uni are very limited.

If your sis is considering private uni then she can do any pre-U she wants (A-Levels, STPM, SAM, etc). Not sure about the other pre-Us but for A-Levels and STPM u need at least ABB to get into a good dental school in Malaysia. Overseas dental schools (eg: Australia, Singapore) will usually require AAA. Entry requirements for dentistry is similar to that of medicine

there's no guarantee in cases like this. It comes down to who you are competing a place against.
Though you have a chance with those kind of results.
List out a few Universities from the top research unis to those technical universities in your preference in UPU

Ya i agree with u.In fact there are some forumers who gt 4.0 and high kk marks but ended with the fifth to eighth choices instead.Besides,dis yr things turn out to be different beoz all critical courses require interviews and tests just like USM.AND we r only allowed to put in courses that require interviews for the first TWO choices ONLY cry.gif

hey there, i just finish spm, waiting for result. i would like to ask if taking BDS in local universities (UM, UKM, USM) is better than taking dentistry in private university like IMU in terms of environment and lecturer? because i cant make up my mind whether to take up A level or form 6. rclxub.gif

Just curious to what everyone is saying about IMU,

what does IMU have to offer in its dental clinics?

What chairs do they use? What dental materials do they use?

And what for what kind of treatment can i register to do there :)
*
IMU offers everything that a dental clinic has :)
The Oral Health Centre (sounds fancy but its just the clinic's name :D) has student-operators and also dental officers, so like the more complex cases are referred to the dental officers. If you're under the dental officer, charges are similar to any dentist outside.

For chairs, KaVo chairs... and erm, materials well, i think all clinics use almost the same materials so worry not! If you have a student operator they should discuss with you the treatment options and ultimately you get to decide what you want.

Can call up the reception and have a screening :) cheapcheap scaling by students!! haha personally i think its super worth it, just that students will probably be much slower (depends on individual of course) than your regular dentist!

Yes, that's the complete list.
Yea, IMU fees for Dentistry is crazy indeed - should be the most expensive course to study in Malaysia and that is if you do the full course locally and not through PDS. It is only matched by MBBS in Monash. Still, the demand for places far exceeds the supply.

The person in charge is Kelly Loh.
Those sitting their exams end of year have to apply with forecast results. They do give conditional offers.
These days, you need almost perfect score and to pass the interview to get a place.

Hey guys, anyone studying dentistry or know anyone studyin dentistry in Manipal Melaka Medical College? I know their BDS programme is relatively new - this year's batch of students was only the 2nd batch. I am curious to know the quality of their dental programme as I would be applying for it next year. I heard rumors of students being allowed to buy exam papers before the exam at the Manipal campus in India. How true is it? I'm not here to bad-talk on MMMC - just want to clarify.

Cause if the dental programme in MMMC is lousy I guess the ONLY good dental school in Malaysia is IMU which is definitely one of my first option if not for their crazy fees - cant afford half a million for my degree

I read somewhere that MMMC Dentistry programme is partly conducted in India for overseas students, predominantly Malaysians. The degree is not recognzed by India's Dental Council. This might give an indication on the status of the degree. Can someone confirm this?

Since it is quite new and the first batch of students has not passed out, the recognition by the Malaysian Dental Council is pending.

That's not a problem if you want to go Taiwan, Indonesia & India. As long as you meet their requirement (C C C), and pass the entrance exam), POOF!!!! you are a dental student.

But, are you seriously wanted to become a dentist?!

hmm...that's nt a very nice statement there..I'm currently in the 2nd batch for mmmc dental programme..and i can assure u that none of that takes place...they run a clean system:)...the facilities in manipal are good and unlile some other unis...we are nt spoon fed everything by our lecturers so...there is a lot of self-studying involved which i think is excellent for character building:)

In general..recognition of any private dental by the malaysian dental council would be provisional...at least until the first batch has passed out...in this case for mmmc...our first batch of students are only in their second year:)

If you wanna change from Dental to medicine, you can do it midway. (not the other way round) but you would most probably have to repeat a semester (pending the deans approval). Also, not unheard of after the first year.

Most that changed failed dental and that's why they went to medicine. Started over.

No. Medicine is much harder. It is just that in IMU, for year1, dental students will attend the same classes as the medical students along with their own (they claim to strengthen their basic sciences and general knowledge) and gradually specialise into dental topics. Therefore, the first year is tough for dental students. However, it gets much much easier later on as you only focus on the face later on.

i am not sure, but i think there are some dental/medicine courses where chemistry is not a prerequisite.............it's pretty easy to get into some of the upstart med schools like mahsa, cucms etc....

otherwise, you can do just an additional chemistry subject as a private candidate, but some unis do not accept results not all done at the same time.....

whether it is worth it or not, only you can answer it yourself.......

If you really have passion for dentistry, just go for it, wasting a couple more years is more worth it compared to your entire future.
A guy from my college, he actually finished his diploma in IT field, worked, but found out it isn't for him.
Then he went and retook A levels, and now he's one of the top achievers in the GCE AS exam. smile.gif

But first, you must be very sure about dentistry smile.gif

Currently only UM is accepting international students for Dentistry.
Anyone knows any quota to how many per intake of international students to local students or is there any at all currently?

Hey guys,

just got an interview invitation from University of Hong Kong for dentistry. Interview on 20th april. Just wondering if anyone got the invitation too?

Regarding such interviews, do you guys think they'll make life hard for us or its just a brief one ? The selection is usually done already right? How will the admission rate go usually after interview?

Thanks

Serious?? From what i gather, they ask pretty straightforward questions and general stuff. Guess I better start catching up with the world sweat.gif

Anyway, did they ask any technical questions regarding dentistry?

Also, what was her condition for her offer? Any idea how many got accepted to there from Malaysia?

Thanks!

well that was her case I don't know about how most people's interview went.
She didn't get a conditional offer, she had her A-level results when she applied,got AAA (she was july 2008 intake so she had her A2 results during last year's january and kinda had a huge 9 month gap before she started uni) so she was invited for interview and a few weeks after they sent her a full offer.
I don't really remember the details since it was like a year ago, just remember the political thing part cause it was a bit peculiar. I do remember she said the interview being mostly like normal conversations that it just felt natural. Don't know maybe it's her ^^"
Well there's a bunch of Malaysians there but I can't really judge since I don't know how many people actually applied and how many accepted, I just know based on a few people and what I see on their facebook ^^"

well that was her case I don't know about how most people's interview went.
She didn't get a conditional offer, she had her A-level results when she applied,got AAA (she was july 2008 intake so she had her A2 results during last year's january and kinda had a huge 9 month gap before she started uni) so she was invited for interview and a few weeks after they sent her a full offer.
I don't really remember the details since it was like a year ago, just remember the political thing part cause it was a bit peculiar. I do remember she said the interview being mostly like normal conversations that it just felt natural. Don't know maybe it's her ^^"
Well there's a bunch of Malaysians there but I can't really judge since I don't know how many people actually applied and how many accepted, I just know based on a few people and what I see on their facebook ^^"

Her AAA, i presume, would be physics, chemistry and maths right? Is she an all-rounded student with an excellent co-co record?

I'm just wondering how many got accepted for interview this year and the ratio of acceptance after interview. So far I know there is one who got the interview offer from Sunway College. Not sure about Taylor's or HELP

I didn't think she took physics. She just did Chem,Bio and Math and thinking skills at AS level if I'm not mistaken.
She's an extremely active person. She gathered people and formed two new clubs being president of both and also she joined my club as an active member and spent so much time organizing events. She's also a student ambassador back then and even know become student ambassador while in HKU as well lol. I remembered back then she and another guy both purposely flunked trials so they would have time to meet our event deadlines and skipped class lol. Both also geniuses so fast afterwards can catch up the girl getting AAA and is doing dentistry in HKU and the guy 4A* and doing medicine in Cambridge. Both examples should not be followed by the majority as it's a bit hard to achieve by the average person ^^"

Hi, may I know what's the minimum requirement grade in Bahasa Melayu to study or practice as a dentist? Because I heard that when you are you are serving in government as houseman you need to have at least a B. Is that true? Thank you

I may have asked this before but have not settled on a particular uni yet.

My mum is asking me to go to IMU because she feels its more reliable compared to MAHSA.
The problem is, I personally heard from a dentist friend that IMU is way overpriced in terms of fees and I myself agree on that point.

MAHSA on the other hand, is affordable but the facilities and environment is nothing compared to the likes of IMU and AIMST.

At the end of the day, as long as i graduate from either IMU or MAHSA, i can start my career as a dentist.
Since both degrees enables me to be a dentist, why should i pay almost double the amount in fees.

Really confused and lost now. Im about to complete my Alevel program this coming June so I only have a couple of months to decide. Intake for MAHSA is August while intake for IMU is in Feb.

Someone care to offer me some advice. Thanks in advance.

No, you can't.
You should not have dropped Chemistry if you're aiming to go into medical field. You should have dropped Physics.
Physics and Bio w/o Chemistry is not a good combination. You can still do engineering though

I'd opt for another field if I were you, unless you are confident of achieving a much better grade.

I had applied for DDS at MAHSA UC, in fact I already have paid for the first sem( RM 19k excluding PTPTN) , for Sept 2011 intake. After reading so many negative posts about MAHSA's DDS standard, I'm afraid about my future prospects regarding my career.

The ONLY REASON that I have chosen MAHSA is because they have

= Good practical training[/B] (Hospital attached is GHKL, meaning more patients. Thus, more practice)
= Reasonable Fees structure ( RM290k. IMU costs half a million! o.O )
= Good Lecturers
I heard that most of the profs are from UKM , UM ...)
= Facilities are not bad[cool.gif, after the renovation at JUC campus. ( Also, in 2 years time the PBD campus will be shifting to a new campus @ Saujana Putra, Subang).
= The chancellor/dean/whoever that are in the BOD have connections.


HOW NOW????? cry.gif shocking.gif hmm.gif
