Professional competencies of newly qualified dental practitioners

In consultation with the dental profession the ADC has developed  professional competencies of newly qualified dental practitioners. These describe the professional competencies for dental practitioners at the point of graduation from an ADC accredited program. These include:

Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Dentist

Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Dental Hygienist, Dental Therapist and Oral Health Therapist

Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Dental Prosthetist

 

Professional competencies of newly qualified dental specialists

The Dental Board of Australia (DBA) in conjunction with the Dental Council (New Zealand) have developed entry-level competencies for dental specialists.

The specialist competencies were published in July 2016 and are available from the DBA's website:
 http://www.dentalboard.gov.au/Registration/Specialist-Registration/Specialist-competencies.aspx.

The professional competencies are an important reference point in the ADC accreditation process and also the assessment and examination process for internationally qualified dental professionals.
