A wonderful experience of learning with academic exposure and practical hands-on. I have great respect, love, and devotion for the entire faculty members of all departments. It’s their efforts that make me count on myself to become a better professional in the future. Right now I am a Director at Apollo Aesthetics where I am serving as a dentist and Aesthetic physician.
I feel privileged to get an opportunity to study for my Bachelor in Dentistry at IDS, Jammu. I always feel the great contribution of IDS towards me is giving me motivation and confidence through both academic and personality grooming activities. The early patient contact program was a big boost during our preclinical years. The academic leadership was excellent and everybody was working there as a team, which trained my leadership qualities. Today, I am quite successful in my profession and for this, I owe my deep sense of obligation to IDS.
Post BDS, I did my Masters from SDCH, Rishikesh with Honors. I was the University Gold Medalist. After that, I appeared NBDE-USA and cleared the exams, and completed my MS at the Ohio State University, USA. For these achievements, I give all credit to my teachers at IDS-Jammu, whose brilliant teaching and mentoring supported me to achieve the goal of my life.
