    You need to check with the programs and institutions involved, as none of us is in a position to give you this information. Go to each program's website and look at their admissions requirements. Even if you do not meet the requirements, you will at least be able to find out what you need to do to become eligible for admission (such as getting research experience), and you can take it from there.

    Agreed, I doubt anyone here is familiar with preventive dentistry as a career.

    Can you talk to some of the people you know who have gotten a master's degree in this field?

    If BDS/MS is the usual route, then one question you should ask yourself is why you want to leapfrog to the PhD.

    It sounds like you know what you want, so go ahead and apply! I am sure that I don't know if you will be accepted for an Indian preventive dentistry PhD, but I wish you much luck.
