Hello, please tell us something about yourself.
My name is Dr. Ankur Sharma. I got selected in Army Dental Corps this year and secured 13th rank.
What according to you is the correct approach to study for Army Dental Corps?
For ADC there is no specific preparation, one has to secure a sober rank in NEET in order to get shortlisted for the interview.
For Interview, prepare and focus on clinical subjects of final year mainly and be prepared mentally since a psychologist along with 7-8 other MDS specialists will be taking the Interview.
CONFIDENCE, MANNERISM and BEING PROPERLY DRESSED worked for me to get selected. It will help you guys too.

How did you prepare for the Interview?
I was preparing for MDS and a week before the exam, I focused on clinical subjects and did viva based preparation just like we used to do in final year.
Some Tips/Suggestions for future MDS/Army Dental Corps Aspirants?
In short, the key to success is not to lose hope even after repetitive failures. Keep working hard and give every possible exam.
For me, it was 2 years and 2 months of preparation.
For some people, it takes 3-4 years and for some, it take less than one year.
The only strategy is not to lose hope.......Success will automatically come to you.
Thank you Dr. Ankur for your valuable tips and suggestions!
We are sure that this post will help you plan better in case you are preparing for next year’s Army Dental Corps.
