Not too long ago, dental care was luxury in emerging economies. Not surprisingly, there were very few dentists. With rising prosperity, dental care has become a necessity. We now have many bright, young and well trained dental surgeons providing quality care. It’s time to look at options for universal care reaching every single person.

I congratulate PROUD TO BE DENTIST team for fabulous work in brining all dentists on one platform, sharing experiences and promoting health care for all. Good luck to everybody.

Health is a nature’s most valuable gift to any living being. It is a birth right to any citizen. It is the prime responsibility of the nation to provide “Health for ALL”. Healthy citizen is nature’s gift to the nation. It is the responsibility of every citizen, professional, politicians etc to achieve this goal.

I congratulate Dr Naveen and his team for this initiative and I wish them all the best.

The shortest distance between two people is a SMILE.  A healthy, beautiful smile can accomplish more than enhancing your appearance and boosting confidence. It can actually improve our overall health.

I congratulate PTBD team for their initiative. Good luck to everybody.

In a batch of one hundred students, it takes quite some time for a new teacher to recognize individual students by name and traits. But there are exceptional personalities, who stand apart from the herd so much that the teacher can’t but pay attention to that individual. Dr. Naveen Pilli is such an exceptional personality.

In the very initial days of my work in Sibar Institute of Dental Sciences, Guntur as an Assistant Professor in the department of Public Health Dentistry, Naveen drew my attention; He was in his final year of graduation. "What was it in him that made him special?" I questioned myself many a times… an unquestioned class representative, an attentive listener, a fluent speaker, a sensible and socially responsible young man… above all a well organized administrator of a successful group, "Proud To Be Dentist" on facebook.

"Amid challenges, arise the leaders" and Naveen rose in deed… When the 2K7 batch protested against removal of internship after graduation, Naveen was a natural choice of students across the state to lead them and represent their case to the university authorities. His active involvement in the activities of 'Medicos' Network' and 'Prerana' sharpened the leader in him. He is a good Tabla player too. But all of this could not deter his preparation for Post Graduate Entrance; he secured 18th rank at state level in his very first attempt, a rare feet given the intensity of competition.

A proud son of sweet parents, a budding leader of Jana Vignana Vedika, a committed volunteer in Dr. Gopalam Sivannarayana's medical camps, a trusted friend of mine… to put simply Naveen is one of "the ones" who really lives with a purpose and can make a difference …

Dr Sai Naveen Kumar, who studied Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) at the Sibar Institute of Dental Sciences, Guntur and secured 18th rank in the PG Dental entrance (MDSET – 13), has zealously been working to promote health awareness especially among underprivileged sections of the society.

Dr Kumar, who is currently based in Vijayawada city of Andhra Pradesh, India, actively participates in free medical camps being organized by various charity organizations and advises people on precautions to be taken to avoid ill-health. Inspired by the motto “Health with Human Touch”, the young dentist mingles freely with poor patients and listens to their problems attentively. Stressing that faith plays an important role in curing ailments along with medicines, Dr Kumar recalls how kind, compassionate and words of doctors do miracles on patients’ health.

Suggesting that generic drugs a solution to the mounting medical costs, the young dentist cautions the public not to fall prey to the misleading campaign of some multi-national drug companies.

The budding dentist also runs a dental group “PROUD TO BE DENTIST” in facebook, which has over 10,000 strong member network around the world. Through the website, he highlights the recent advances on dentistry and clears the doubts of dental students.

I congratulate him for his achievements and wish him all the very best for his future endeavor.



 

 

Career Options :

Dentistry in USA:

Hello everybody. For Aspiring Dentists in India wanting to know about Practicing Dentistry in The U.S.A, first thing is migrating to U.S.A; Source: U.S. Consular Office in India or check with dental schools with Post Graduation (PG) studies & apply for admission. If accepted you can come here on student visa. Check & see if you can afford the fees & maintenance for 2 to 3 years. It may be hard to get bank loans here as you have no work permit & not a permanent resident. Your relatives cannot loan you that kind of money. If you finish your PG and still not a permanent resident, you cannot work.

This is the land of laws. You can find employment through some corporation having dental clinics. Corporate dentistry is not the best. Watch a documentary called "Dollars & Dentists" at www.pbs.org Get all the info about dental schools & dentistry in the U.S at www.ada.org specially for foreign graduates. If you are in the U.S and want to get a license as a general dentist, you have to appear for National Board Of Dental Exams (NBDE) administered by ADA & then entrance exam/s for admission to dental college for undergraduate degree which is 2 to 3 years. The fees for each year I heard varies from $ 60,000 to $ 80,000. You can check this with particular college website or by contacting them. (Information to-day is at your finger tips to-day with the internet compared to what we went through in the late 60's. & early seventies. We were lucky to get permanent resident status right away).

Enough of the longe essay & you start doing the home work. They say measure Twice & Cut once. Plan Plan & Plan First. Good Luck.

Caduceus - The Emblem Of Dentistry..!!

The dental symbol was adopted by the American Dental Association in November 1965 as the official emblem of dentistry.

The Greek letter Δ (delta), for dentistry, and the Greek letter Ο (omicron), for odont (tooth) form the periphery of the design.

In the background of the design are 32 leaves and 20 berries, representative of the permanent and temporary teeth.

The suggested colors for the symbol are: a shade of lilac in the background—the official academic color of dentistry; the letter Ο in gold; the letter Δ in black; the cautery in gold outlined in black, and the leaves, berries and serpent merely outlined in black on the lilac background.

In the center is the 'Rod of Asclepius' which is a serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine.

The symbol has continued to be used in modern times, where it is associated with medicine and health care.

The National Association of Dental Faculties in 1897 chose the color lilac as the profession’s major color. The color trims dental schools’ graduation gowns and caps and may be found in dental banners, emblems, insignia, signs, symbols and publications.

Poetry :

A carol by a gal on her day...
I am a girl with my little world
singing a carol that you might have heard....

There was a gal with her flaring dreams,,,,
a wedding dress en-wrapping her
wet eyes made everything blur.....

with a silver beam someone stepped in
was a DAD,,,,,
who calmly came and kissed her forehead........

he breathed something in a broken voice,
"take care of my gal"
a respond came from another voice,,,
"now your angel is all mine sir".....


oh!!!! dad....I am changing my tree ,,,,
but i still remain your bird.....
roots are yours,,,,,
so i won't do anything weird.....


I am a gal with my little world,,,,
singing a carol that you might have heard....
