    Master of Dental Surgery (MDS) degree is best after doing Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) if you have interest in doctor line. As you have said you have studied BDS for sake of my parents anddon't want to continue it by doing MDS.

    MBA is also good option after doing BDS.From MBA/MHA offer good salary from beginning like atleast 20k depending upon your skills.

    Best option is to study for government examinations. You should also go with IAS UPSC examinations. Choose good institute and study for the examinations. All government examinations have same pattern and same syllabus. If you study for the IAS examinations you can get banking and other state examinations easily.But you will be focused for your target. IAS is best job in India that every person dream of.

    You have completed BDS. But you are not further interested in MDS. You want to know the best course of action for good prospects in your career.
    BDS and MBA are not a very good combination. But there are few jobs for BDS and MBA like Dental Hospital corporate office management or good corporate hospital management jobs. But chances are very less.
    I suggest you go for competitive examinations. Aim at IAS. Get prepared for IAS. Also, apply for bank officers posts and state government jobs also. Definitely, you will have very good chances to secure a job. Class 1 officers and Class II officers will also get good pay. Once you start studying for IAS, facing all other examinations will be an easy task.
    But whether interested or not you have taken all pains to complete your BDS. That is good and I am also happy that your parent's words were honored by you. You are half way through a profession. If you complete MDS, you can join as lecturer in any Dental college. That will be also rewarding. you can do your Ph.D. also while working as a lecturer. Please give a thought in that direction also.

    always confident

    As you are not much interested in dental side you have options either to go to management side or appear for top exams like I AS. You can also try in state level administrative services through state public service commission.

    If you have interest in management side you can do MBA/ MHA from some good institution and then try for a better job in various private organisations or institutes or big hospitals.

    On the other hand if you have a liking for administrative job in Govt departments then you have to appear in I AS or other Govt services at lower cadres. Please remember that I AS is not only the most coveted service but also it is pursued by a large number of qualified people and hence there is very high level of competition in it. Lacs of people appear for this and go through a screening process followed by written and interview. It is not impossible to qualify I AS but it requires lot of study and hard work.

    If you are determined to rise in life to glorious height then I will suggest you to go for this top exam of our country.

    Knowledge is power.

    BDS is a graduation course where the aspirants receive extensive training and inputs in Dental - hygiene. Afterwards, they can take up independent practice in Dentistry.
    There are other avenues after acquiring this qualification such as joining Management - courses, to crack Civil - services Examination, and even can make an attempt for the State - civil Services.
    The other categories which you may try are Banking Probationary Officers, LIC Probationary Officers etc.
    Whatever the option you persue, you must have intense liking for the course. As for example, you have liking for the Management course, prepare for the CAT test and achieve a respectable percentile ie beyond 95 percentile so as to grab a seat in IIM and they go in for specialisation in Finance or in the Health - management so that you could get both fame and money after the acquring this Management course.
    Similarly, if you have a flair for the Administrative - service, devote all your time to the preparation of the course. It would be better to attend the coaching classes organised by some of the renowned Institutes such as TIME, Rao - study Circle etc where you would learn many valuable tips helpful in cracking the IAS examination.
    The other area appropriate in your future line would be to persue MDS so that later you can join as a lecturer in a Dental - college. Your future will be bright if you could procure a Ph.D in Dentistry.
    You need to have a cool thinking prior to selection of any of the courses since any change in the later part would amount to sheer loss of time and labour in the wake of wrong selection of the course.

    BDS is a specialised course related to dental treatment. Generally the students who aspire to become medical practitioners join this course. After completion of BDS, such students, if opportunity arises, plan to go for higher studies in the same field, i.e., they pursue MDS. If a person wants to go for MBA after BDS, it can be surmised that he/she is not interested in the medical profession.

    You can shift to MBA. You can prepare yourself for IAS. But perseverance is very much necessary for ultimate success. So, first thing which is required is introspection. You have to ask yourself what do you want to do in life.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    As you have already done BDS you have gained knowledge in medical field. This may be useful to you if you pursue MBA/ MHA. There are good opportunities after MBA/ MHA and you can try to get a managerial post in some private organisation and also as you are already BDS there will be opportunities in hospital management and administration.

    Another option which you have indicated is IAS and this may require thorough preparation for its entrance examination. Though there is lot of competition in IAS still one can be successful by hard work and determination. One should not be discouraged with first attempt results as there are people who have been successful in 2-3 attempts.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
