Two day update course in preparation for the Irish Dental Council’s Statutory Examination Bench Test

The Restorative Department of the Dublin Dental University Hospital will provide a three-day update course in preparation for the Irish Dental Council’s Statutory Examination Bench Test.

If there is sufficient interest (minimum 10 participants, maximum 30 participants), the Bench Test Preparation programme 2017 will run for two days, from Monday 3rd April to Tuesday 4th April 2017. The final half day will be used for a trial bench test, with feedback from the instructors.

It will take place in the “state of the art” teaching facilities at the Dublin Dental University Hospital and will consist of supportive lectures with an extensive supervised opportunity to carry out appropriate restorative exercises, including class 1 & 2 amalgam restorations, all-ceramic anterior crown preparation and temporisation.

On the final day, participants will have the opportunity to complete preparations under examination conditions, and the preparations will be evaluated by the instructors. Formative feedback will be provided for all the participants.

The fee for the course is €1,500.  Closing date for application is Friday 3rd March 2017.  A completed Bench Test Application form 2017 and fee must be returned to Catherine Creagh, Dublin Dental University Hospital, Lincoln Place, Dublin 2 or email catherine.creagh@dental.tcd.ie before this date.
