India has become the third country in the world to announce the hiring of 100 new dental jobs over the next five years.
The job market is expected to grow by 25 percent annually, according to the government’s National Dental Workforce Promotion Agency.
The agency is the nodal body for the job market and has recently approved hiring for 200 new dental job posts across all industries.
The agency is also planning to hire more than 5,000 dental jobs in the next three years.
The move comes as India prepares to celebrate 100 years of independence from British rule in 2019.
