"I loved that my college had a whole group of supportive professors who helped me explore a lot more than what's in the book. My professors encouraged to further my knowledge in dentistry through conferences and all-india exams. I had a diverse experience of both academia and extracurricular activities. The opportunities given to me as a part of a cultural team helped me shape my leadership and public speaking skills, which was a crucial element in my higher education."

"My decision of Joining KCDS for BDS is something I would never regret about. KCDS is a wonderfully inspiring institution with the best available facilities, faculties and administration. Students get individual mentorship from the Teachers to learn proper theoretical and clinical skills to deliver to the patients independently. Intense training, regular assessment and the extracurricular activities have shaped us as competent and responsible clinicians. My five years has been perfectly successful as I am proud to say that I am pursuing Post Graduation in one of the most exclusive branches of Dentistry i.e. Orthodontics in a Govt. Dental College. I can never deny the institution’s contribution in this achievement. The institution enhanced me with intense clinical knowledge in the domain that has been inspirational for me to nurture myself as a well skilled orthodontist and deliver my service to the society."

"It has been a pleasure and nothing short of a blessing to be a part of the KCDS family. The college faculty; especially my treasured Conservative department faculty has guided and helped me immensely through this journey to perfecting my knowledge in the field of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics. The 3 years helped me develop not only my clinical skills but also gave me the stage to use my talents and work as a team on that front as well leaving me with some memories to cherish for a lifetime."

Also, knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice. KCDS has done exactly that for us as students. The teaching faculty, the department and the college as a whole have moulded us to become better practitioners with sound theoretical know-how of not only the field we specialise in but dentistry as a whole. With a lot of school dental camps, inter-departmental discussions, vast variety of cases, KCDS has constructed a framework of confidence to help us handle cases independently after completing the course.
I thank KCDS for letting me be a part of their esteemed institution, guiding me and being a part of my beautiful journey towards becoming a good dental practitioner.

"It is an honour to refer to myself as an alumnus of the prestigious Krishnadevaraya College of Dental Sciences.
Nestled among the villages of North Bangalore this institution is a powerhouse of great academic minds as faculty members and state of the art facilities for students; be it the equipment in the clinics or availability of plethora of numerous books and journals in the up to date library.
Three years of Post graduation in the Department of Public Health Dentistry of this esteemed institution under the unparalleled guidance of my Head of Department Dr. R Murali, has not only lead me to grab the 2nd rank in RGUHS but also transformed me as an individual and overall a better dentist.
The type of student teacher relationship followed in this institute holds testimony to roots of guru-shishya relationship in India where the Gurus don't just teach the students but also develop them into responsible individuals ready to face the World.
I encourage anyone who wants a memorable journey not just a degree to apply for BDS and MDS courses in Krishnadevaraya College of Dental Sciences."
I consider it a great privilege that I was given the opportunity to study in the department of periodontology in KCDS. The sojourn I embarked upon was fueled by the unflinching support of my teachers and beloved institution. I consider myself blessed to have learnt under the foremost and best teachers in the field. It is rare in today's society to find a niche where personal and professional growth are encouraged, recognized and appreciated. This is one such place and I shall forever be grateful and proud that I am an alumni of the department of periodontics and of KCDS.

Dr. Poojita Prakash Hegde
"I had lost the hope of getting into a beautiful college in Bangalore after visiting the college which was allotted to me in the first round of CET counselling, but then I visited KCDS after someone suggested it. And the minute I stepped into the campus I knew this is it. The greenery, the tranquillity away from City's chaos made me change the preference list of colleges in the Second round and that’s how I landed myself at KCDS. And KCDS never let me regret that decision. In my journey of transformation from a not very confident young girl to a doctor who received a gold medal from The President of India, KCDS and its staff played a huge role. KCDS principal & staff for me were not merely lecturers, they were mentors, ushers and even counsellors at difficult times. Organising events, participating in cultural and sports competitions, getting the opportunity to form close friendships with like minded people, it was all one would dream and hope of doing in their college life and more. Along with the staff and friends, the post graduate students also need a mention here for they were always there for me when I needed academic help. To sum it all up Krishnadevaraya college of dental sciences with its optimal resources, good infrastructure, excellent faculty and their abundant knowledge helped me build a professional life with a strong foundation and I will always be thankful for that."
