There’s an alumni group called prerana where all the passéd out students are the members of the group. There are many events like sports day week and college day week. It can be good when you make good friends and there are no restrictions in the college
There are separate hostels for boys and girls and they are fine and the hostel fee is not that expensive and it is affordable. The cost of food is pretty low, and the cost of the meal is approximately 60-70 rs. Classrooms are well organized with air conditioners and they are big and spacious
Timings are good and it varies from year to year and teaching is good. I would say overall experience is satisfactory.
Rs. 5 Lakh is the course fee per year at Sibar Institute of Dental Sciences, Guntur and there are many banks which offer a loan for your education and for people who have reservation can get funding from the government throughout the course.
I joined Sibar institute of dental sciences in the year 2012 and I got admitted through eamcet with a rank of 4800 but now we get admission only if we qualify neet examination
There are no student societies or clubs in the college. There is an annual college day which is celebrated during December or February every year. In general college life is boring and it is like a routine based on speeding cogs and wheels of a huge wall clock. There is no time as to enjoy as there is continuous work submissions, patient quota completions and viva completion. Looking back, the only enjoyment I felt I had was the satisfaction I felt after completing my work.
There are three hostels : one boys hostel and two girls hostels in which one of the hostel is for the freshers. The rooms are not spacious and the living conditions are pretty decent. There are no nearby PGs but there are rooms available for rent in the nearby areas . The rent costs upto 2000 INR per head per month. The food is good to taste and each meal costs about 60₹ . The classrooms are big and can accommodate around 150 students. There is only one library within the building and it is spacious to accommodate around 120 students. Most of the books are only for reference purposes and very few can be issued. The computer availabilities are also out of bounds for students and used only when permission is granted. The WiFi in the library is locked with password and is used only under the librarian's permission. There is no WiFi in the college or hospital or hostel. The dining halls are not so good comparatively.
There is a strict time schedule that is followed on an hourly basis. The college allots a month every now and then to conduct any projects and research programs which are optional based on the students interests. I can affirm that the quality of teaching is not so good according to college standards. The method of teaching however is bad and is to rote and by heart method. There is no understanding method and most of the students follow the notes prepared by the professor and remember these notes by rote. As a student, I myself felt that I need not put any exertion into going to libraries or refering various authors and just by heart the notes given. I have passed with a good percentage so I am happy. But I feel, if there was more teaching efficiency involved, I would have gained better marks.

There is no such option as campus placements because this is a dental degree. In this course, there is an additional one year where we work as an intern in the hospital that is affiliated with the college. The stipend we receive per year is 24000 INR. The alumni network is not that generous but during the last year there has been an alumni meet . Currently I am doing my internship and the stipend I get paid is 2000 INR per month. It is very difficult to get a good job immediately after completing BDS, so many students prefer to take up MDS, which is the master's degree. My seniors who have got jobs immediately after BDS, earn a salary of 1,40,000 per year. There are other government jobs which are highly paid .
