Many students rush toward Medical College without first considering what the field of dentistry has to offer. What they may not know is that a career as a dental professional can offer many advantages. Dentists are professionals trained specifically for diagnosing and treating the many diseases that can occur in the oral cavity. In addition, they instruct patients on how to care for their teeth and gums. They restore teeth that are damaged by decay, trauma or other reasons, using a wide variety of techniques and materials.
As a dentist, you have the opportunity to strengthen your patient’s self-confidence, improve their overall health, and potentially even save lives. For example, infections such as cancer can show their first symptoms in the oral cavity. As a result, the dentist often serves as the first line of detection for these life-threatening diseases. Dentists most certainly make a difference in the lives of their patients.

DAV society made a tryst with destiny 126 years ago for the spread of education in India. Since then it has opened schools, colleges and technical institutions in all parts of India, from the metros to the remotest corners of the country. Right from the start, carefully planned teaching innovations have been adopted, which have led to better teaching. The most modern of devices and teaching aids are in use, since that is in a way the very raison d’être of the DAV’s existence.
To seek the best from the world over and yet carry along with us our values that form the basis of every action of everyday life, blend the best of modernity with tradition is practiced for which DAV has also been seen as a precursor of change.
This process of gradual evolution that the DAV brings about is not just limited to students, but to all those associated with it, be they teachers, administrators, staff or parents.
I see DAV today, more than just an institution or an organization. It is a way of life that crosses all barriers of caste, creed, race and religion. Now with this prospectus, even geographical barriers are surpassed. This is so because at the core of our existence is enshrined the guiding principles by Maharishi Swami Dayanand ji and Mahatma Hansraj ji, which are the basic human values that have to be accepted the world over for us to build a better tomorrow. We try to do this by instilling the core values into every man, woman and child, towards the foundation of a more glorious future, because in education lies the greatest service to an individual, to the nation and to humanity.
