Candidates will be expected to have a sound basic knowledge and understanding of applied anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry sufficient to interpret the effects of common dental diseases and injuries on the systems of the body especially, but not exclusively, in the head and neck. They are expected to have an understanding of cell biology and applied histology which enables them to understand the normal and disordered function of dentally important tissues and organs. A detailed knowledge of embryology is not required but the pathogenesis of common developmental abnormalities important in dentistry may be examined. A working knowledge of the therapeutic actions and toxic effects of drugs commonly used, in particular in the treatment of dental conditions, will also be required. Candidates must have an understanding of those aspects of pathology, immunology and microbiology that are relevant to dental practice.

This examination is an assessment of the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of matters relating to direct patient care. However, the Curriculum domain ‘Management and Leadership’ includes many competencies that relate specifically to the business of running a practice in the National Health Service. Candidates will not be examined in this part of the Curriculum. Thus, there will not be questions about practice management, contractual arrangements, selection and maintenance of equipment, remuneration systems, employment legislation, the legal issues relating to health & safety, the structure, rules and regulations of the NHS, financial matters or business planning.
