A European Core Curriculum In Cariology: The Knowledge Base

Bennett T. Amaechi BDS, MSc, PhD, FADI

This course describes the foundation knowledge required by an undergraduate dental student in order to reach the appropriate competence levels in all fields of dentistry to enter the practice of General Dentistry. The problems of implementing a curriculum that truly integrates this foundation knowledge into the clinical teaching and possible solutions are discussed.

  1. Core knowledge to be included at some point in the undergraduate dental curriculum to enable a graduating dentist to be competent at applying all the relevant foundation knowledge to enhance their ability to make the correct clinical decisions about prevention and management of caries and other dental hard tissue disorders
  2. Major competence required of a graduating dentist for readiness to enter the practice of general dentistry
  3. Supporting (individual) competences required of a graduating dentist in each component of the knowledge base  to be able to resolve clinical problems encountered independently or without assistance
