INTRODUCTION: Well-conducted peer observation of teaching (POT) programmes are effective in enhancing teaching quality and teacher development in higher education including healthcare teaching. This study evaluated POT's use in dental education and involved predominantly clinical dental educators working in a United Kingdom (UK) dental school and hospital. It aimed to (a) audit their engagement with POT, (b) review the design(s) of POT in use, (c) assess participant's perceived value of POT and (d) explore ways that the existing programme could be enhanced to maximise its utility...

PURPOSE: This study aims to evaluate the experience of dental students and assess their anxiety levels when performing emergency endodontic treatments. METHODS: Undergraduate students completed the STAI-Trait/State and a questionnaire to assess their confidence level to perform each step of an emergency endodontic procedure. They also answered a numerical scale (NRS) for anxiety before and after emergency care. Ten randomly selected students from the same sample further participated in a focus group aimed at obtaining qualitative data on their perception of endodontic treatments' conduction and the learning process necessary to perform them...

OBJECTIVE: Good clinical skills are crucial for all dental practitioners. The transfer of knowledge from didactic lectures to daily clinical application can be challenging for current millennial learners. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of using instructional videos to teach dental local anaesthesia in an undergraduate oral health programme in 2017.

INTRODUCTION: Explicit instruction (conscious knowledge/rules) is generally used for learning dental operative skills; however, recent work has demonstrated advantages of learning skills implicitly with minimal accrual of conscious knowledge and reduced attentional demands. Therefore, this study examined the effects of learning handpiece manipulation skills explicitly (errorful) and implicitly (errorless: limited error detection/correction) under conditions of increased attentional demands (ie multitasking and additional instructions)...

INTRODUCTION: The theory of threshold concepts (TCs) is a burgeoning area of educational research and curriculum reform. This study describes and reviews the TCs literature, describes the differences between TCs and threshold learning outcomes (TLOs) and seeks to promote discussion on using an integrated reflective practice approach to facilitate the translation of TCs into fulfilment of TLOs. A worked example is included in this study to explore the challenges inherent in this task but also the learning gains to be made for both staff and students in this endeavour...

INTRODUCTION: Progress testing is a special form of longitudinal and feedback-oriented assessment. Even though well established in human medical curricula, this is not the case in dental education. The aim was the prospective development and implementation of the first reported German-language Dental Progress Test (DPT) for the undergraduate dental curriculum at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Participation in DPT was compulsory for all dental students in terms 7-12 (years 4-6)...

INTRODUCTION: Many societies have observed a steady increase of many older adults living longer due to advancements in health and standard of living. The dental team requires specialised training in gerodontology to better prepare for the future needs of the elderly patients. It is the aim of this study to report the undergraduate students' activities and perspectives on their work experience in a geriatric residence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An anonymous online questionnaire on the theoretical and practical aspects of training was sent to students in dentistry and dental hygiene (DH) undergraduate courses...

AIM: To investigate the use of a preparation evaluation system for enhancing the learning and performance of undergraduate dental students when cutting preparations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two groups of eighteen students each were randomly chosen from the fourth year of the dental programme. The task chosen for this study was to make a cavity in preparation for a mesio-occlusal ceramic onlay in a plastic tooth. The dimensions of the cavity were defined, and 2 burs of known size were used for preparation...

INTRODUCTION: Identification and assessment of Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) outcomes have been elusive. Our objective was to describe EBD skill acquisition during the second (D2) year of pre-doctoral dental education and student competency at the end of the year. METHODS: The first and fourth (final) curricular-required EBD Exercises (ie, application of the first 4 steps of the 5-Step evidence-based practice process applied to a real or hypothetical situation) completed by D2 students (n = 151) during 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 were evaluated to measure skill acquisition through use of a novel rubric with measures of performance from novice to expert...
