Details of Courses: Ist Professional B.D.S.
The Pakistan Medical & Dental Council is a statutory body
constituted by the Federal Government under the Pakistan Medical & Dental Council Ordinance, 1962. Presently controlled by the Council. One of the main function of the Council is to lay down the minimum standard of basic and higher qualifications in Medicine & Dentistry. The Council has been empowered to:
- To prescribe a uniform minimum standard of courses of training for
obtaining graduate and postgraduate dental qualification.
- To prescribe minimum requirements for the content and duration of
courses of studies for the degree of BDS.
- To prescribe condition for admission to courses of training for the
- To prescribe the standards of examinations method of conducting the
For this purpose senior teachers of all specialties were invited &
draft curriculum was finalized after due consideration of the comments and suggestions received from the Universities and Colleges where the subject under consideration is taught.
The Curriculum prepared by the Curriculum Revision Committee of
Higher Education Commission was duly approved by Council & is being circulated for implementation by the concerned institutions on.
This Curriculum is to be followed by all the Dental Colleges and
Universities in Pakistan to get registration of the Council for Dental practitioners.

CURRICULUM OF BDS
A meeting of NCRC B.D.S. was held on 19.8.2003 to restructure the
B.D.S. curriculum into four years from five years as decided in the Council
Session held on 29th & 30th April 2003.
The Committee considered the proposals of subjects specialists in
various disciplines of Dentistry and discussed the following:-
First draft curriculum of various subjects taught in BDS.
Following recommendations were proposed unanimously:-
Nomenclature of Oral Surgery should be changed to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Prosthetics should be called Prosthodontics
Conservative Dentistry be called Operative Dentistry
Dental Anatomy should be renamed as Oral Biology and Tooth Morphology
Dental Chemistry should be called Science of Dental Materials
It was also proposed that Periodontology, Gerodontology and Paedondontics are the best descriptive terms.
YEAR WISE DISTRIBUTION OF SUBJECTS:
It was felt that Oral Medicine and Periodontology should be independent subjects but till the availability of subject specialists they could be taught together. Those institutions where separate subject specialists are available with developed departments may teach and examine these subjects independently.
?? Where the department of Paediatric Dentistry with qualified staff is
available there will be a separate examination of the subject in final year BDS.
Examination System was restructured as following: -
All papers should consist of MCQs and essay type question.
Internal evaluation of each subject carries 10% marks of the total to be adjusted in practical marks.
The question paper should be according to the table of specification provided in curriculum of that subject.
