H1B VISA for doctors come under the same H1B quota limitations for engineers or do they have separate quota?

If your question is about the quota for Medicine Residents, then it does not come under the employment based H1-B visa quota.

For Foriegn dentists who studied here- do the H1b dental jobs come under the 20000 advanced degree cap or is it like the medical residencies -independant?
If it is independant - does it mean that one can apply any time without a time frame like April/? every year for that FY.

Depends on the employer.

Does it mean who ever the employer is like- if not for profit - no cap/ For profit organisation- comes under cap ?

Wish it was easy like you said. Unfortunately, it isn't.
Google for the laws and you will run into lots of information.

Thanx for the info link. That was more constructive. I wasnt enquiring about the procedural difficulties as much as the policies that apply.

I just wanted to know - whether dentist jobs (having done DDS from USA) come under 20000 H1Bcap or cap exempt. Any way ur reply with the web link helped.I had a doubt b'cos medical residencies i think are exempt.

In general, dentists hired by XYZ dental associates are mostly private and for profit and they do not come under cap exemption.
There is a possibility for the position to be cap-exempt if a hospital hires a dentist to take care of accidents and trauma patients or if the person works for a University that teaches dentistry in some form and similar positions.
Even for doctors, not all positions are cap-exempt.
