The Teachers Group is an active group of the Society which encourages networking between members teaching SCD to undergraduates, postgraduates and DCPs. Its members include representatives from most Dental Schools and DCP representatives.

The group meets once a year, before the May Scientific meeting to share teaching experiences and good practice.  The teachers group of BSDH have produced guidance on core content and specified learning outcomes for an undergraduate curriculum in Special Care Dentistry. The learning outcomes are mapped to those of the GDC (2012) document ‘Preparing for Practice’ and are based on the international core guidance on undergraduate curricula in Special Care Dentistry produced by iADH.

The specification of learning outcomes is not intended to dictate the level of teaching in Special Care Dentistry but to assist schools in their own curriculum development.   The full document can be downloaded here.
