The undergraduate and postgraduate admission of dental seats in India has been facing a decline in the recent past. The future of the dental profession is at stake in the country due to multifaceted issues. Without solving the actual underlying problem, there is no point in blaming the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) or bringing down the scores to fill the seats. It's high time the policymakers, senior professionals, government, and the regulatory body take an action to improve the scenario and save the profession from the crisis.
