New Delhi: Dental Council of India (DCI) has issued a notification related to conducting fellowship courses without permission of the Dental Council of India/Government of India.

DCI has noticed that different deemed Universities are conducting various fellowship programs in the country. However, no guidelines have been framed/approved by the council in this regard. With immediate action, all the Universities have been directed to stop such fellowship courses until the DCI frames guidelines for the same and the same are approved by the Government of India.

Further, DCI has implied that dentists doing fellowship programs/courses from any such university are doing at their own risk and will be solely responsible for consequences arising thereon.

The universities running illegal courses/training/fellowship programs for dentists will attract the relevant provision of the Dentists Act, 1948 and Regulations made there-under or any other law framed by the respective State under their legislative competence by the respective competent authority of the State. This step will be taken to prevent malpractices and ensure that any dental qualification awarded violates the Dentists Act, 1948. The regulations made there under shall not be recognized qualifications for the purposes of the Dentists Act, 1948.

The Dental Council of India has been constituted by an Act of Parliament to regulate the profession of dentistry and also to maintain the highest standards of dental education in the country. It is the statutory and bounden duty of the DCI to take such steps which are required to be taken to maintain the highest standards of dental education in the country

Any dental qualification granted by any person/authority/institution is not valid unless and until it is according to the norms of the DCI Act and Regulations made there-under, the respective provisions of Section 10,10A and 10B of the Dentists Act, 1948.
