It is the foundation of clinical practice in this discipline and covers all clinical aspects of prevention, repair and maintenance of the primary and permanent dentition in children, adolescents and adults. The importance of sound diagnostic criteria leading to the creation of rational treatment plans is emphasised. The candidate should develop a sound understanding of differing treatment philosophies, materials and techniques.
