In Brazil, development of "academic dentistry" over recent decades has also been based on the models cited (3). Academic dentistry refers to everything that concerns the dental profession in an educational setting. It involves both teaching/learning in undergraduate or postgraduate, and research and development - including the training of new professors, as well as university internship in the Academy/Health services/Community environment. Although Brazilian universities have trained and developed a considerable number of new dental professionals, its approach has been criticized because epidemiological achievements have underlined a striking paradox in the oral health status of the Brazilian population, as evidenced by the last national epidemiologic survey, in which serious iniquities in oral health were observed (4)...

INTRODUCTION: Increasing confidence through learning has the potential to change General Dental Practitioners' (GDPs) perceptions of clinical practice. By examining how changes in confidence influence the clinical practice of two cohorts of GDPs, during and following an extended period of postgraduate training, we show the importance of confidence to GDPs and that a lack of confidence is a primary reason why GDPs attend postgraduate training courses. METHODS: A mixed method approach was adopted for this study...

INTRODUCTION: As teaching strategies, the seminar and fishbowl approaches promote active learning and shift the focus from the teacher to the learner. The aim of this study was to compare the self-reported perceptions of each student-centred teaching technique among a group of dental students as well as resultant quiz scores after each teaching technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the first semester of 2017, all year-3 (N=88) Semiology and year-5 (N=71) Oral Surgery students participated in weekly seminars in which teams of students from both cohorts were given an actual clinical case to study; a diagnosis and treatment plan would be rendered, and an oral case presentation would be presented to the rest of the class...

INTRODUCTION: Virtual microscopy, used as a method to teach histology, has many undeniable advantages. However, the usefulness of this method is somewhat limited by the difficulties students face in finding their way through huge amounts of digital data, compounded by decreased interaction between students and teachers. We describe the results of a recent pilot project which combined the modern teaching methods of active learning; where students themselves present histological slides, and make use of the virtual microscopy system...

INTRODUCTION / BACKGROUND: In odontology, chronic diseases and chronic conditions (such as chronic periodontitis, temporomandibular disorders, chronic orofacial pain) justify patient education to self-care. This strategy of secondary or tertiary prevention, even if officially recognized, is still less known compared to health education, a form of primary prevention. We wanted to make the point of recent studies devoted to patient education. Thus, the purpose of our study is to give an updated picture of patient education in odontology, describing, through an analysis of the international literature from 2006 to 2016, its characteristics and development...

INTRODUCTION: Communication skills are an integral component of dental undergraduate education. Due to the complex nature of these skills, didactic teaching methods used in other educational contexts can be limited. Interactive and participative methods rooted in modern adult learning theories, such as Forum Theatre, may be more effective in the teaching of communication skills. AIM: To explore the usefulness of Forum Theatre in teaching clinical undergraduate dental students how to break bad news to their patients...

INTRODUCTION: To obtain more reliable results from observation-based assessments, high-quality raters are key. Although this quality can be obtained by using instructors, extra workload can be a burden on them. To overcome this problem, one alternative to instructor raters can be standardized patients (SPs). METHOD: In this study, the students carried out an SP interview related to communication with an applicant/patient in the context of clinical skills training course...

INTRODUCTION: Selection to dental school is the point at which there is the potential to assess a wide range of candidate attributes and select those most likely to learn, train and work within the profession. Despite this, little is known in terms of what works and what does not work in dental selection in terms of predicting future performance accurately and fairly. Given this, our aim was to synthesize the last 30 years of research investigating the predictive validity of dental school selection methods...
