The proposed assessment date is outlined below, assessment dates will be based upon availability of patients (clients) within the Royal Dental Hospital Melbourne.

 

The assessment will be undertaken in two parts;

  1. November 3, 2017- Case presentations to a panel of external assessors (using 1 - F/F case and 1 - Partial denture case that have been deemed as assessment cases, with noguidance from anyone else, throughout all stages of the treatment), you will present the treatment that you undertook for the clients and respond to questions from the panel. The presentation must include a full case history as well as photographic evidence of the treatment.
  2. November 10, 2017 - External assessors will assess the work undertaken in the clinical environment at the check visit, you may be asked into the clinical booth at the time to discuss the treatment. This will be at the discretion of the assessors.

Throughout both aspects of this assessment, you will be assessed against the Professional Competencies of the Newly Qualified Dental Prosthetist as outlined in your clinical logbook and on the following website:
