In 1994, the first dental competency document developed at a national level was adopted in Canada by all stakeholders. As a result of a recommendation made by the consensus workshop involved in the original process, a 10-year review and revision of the competencies for a beginning dental practitioner in Canada was undertaken and completed. As of November 2005, the revised competencies have been adopted by all stakeholders and are being used as a reference for curriculum management, program accreditation and the development of certification examinations.
