I came to Dr. DY Patil Dental College in 2018 to pursue a career in dentistry. Over the past four years in this college, I have evolved a lot. The college played a major role in my journey from being a shy, introverted person to becoming an outspoken, confident, and extroverted personality. Every year, we have cultural, sports, and an annual event that motivates the students to express their skills and talents. When it comes to dentistry, innovative competitions are conducted in college throughout the year that includes poster presentations, debate competitions, quizzes, etc. The study and work environment does not feel stressful as teaching is dealt with, through a different approach. Students actively participate in presenting seminars, role-playing, live demonstrations, conducting oral health awareness camps, and educating the patients. Patient inflow is abundant. Students get to see and treat numerous patients throughout the year.
My experience with hostel life has been amazing. The on-campus hostel is available for both boys and girls. Hostels are equipped with a fully-functional gym, mess service, and space for recreational activities. Apart from this, the college premise has security guards at multiple checkpoints for twenty-four hours. There are strict rules for entry and exit from the hostel. Parents are kept well-informed about the status of their children in the hostel as well as in college. You will find a variety of trees and plants scattered throughout the campus thus adding to nature’s beauty. I would recommend this college to someone who is looking for opportunities to grow as a person and excel in their career.
