Organizational support for defining the specialty of prosthodontics to encompass a broad spectrum of dental restorations and related care helped develop commitment to improved research and education. Instrumental in these improvements were faculty with advanced education in the discipline, better physical plants in which to work and an understanding of the theories of teaching and learning.
Faculty will continue to be innovative and adopt new approaches such as evidence-based dentistry and problembased learning. However, the lure of research funding and institutional expectations will probably influence how faculty spend their time and energy. Prosthodontic education will continue to evolve, but it will be influenced by its institutional and professional environments.
