Review of Education

As the regulator of the whole dental team in the UK, one of our responsibilities is to quality assure education and training, to make sure that each programme meets our standards. It is our statutory duty to ensure that new graduates fulfil the required learning outcomes in order to register with us. 

The Review of Education sets out the education quality assurance activity that has been undertaken in an academic year. The current Review of Education 2021-22, looks at all activity between August 2021 to July 2022. 

Despite the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic on dental education and training, we have fulfilled our responsibilities, assuring the quality of existing dental education programmes, approving new ones and introducing new processes to quality assure Specialist Dentist training and assessments.
