The University of the Philippines College of Dentistry established this Dental Board Orientation in order to aid graduates of the the different dental schools in hurdling the Dental Licensure Examinations offered by the Philippine Regulations Commission biannually.
One of the goals of this 25-day intensive course is to refresh the student’s knowledge, skills and attitude towards a particular discipline in the field of Dentistry. The different presentations and discussions are aimed to facilitate recall of pertinent pieces of information deemed useful for the Board Examination. This would also, hopefully, deepen the student’s appreciation as well as understanding of the different disciplines that are relevant to the practice of the profession.
Our lecturers are mostly faculty members of the UP College of Dentistry who are mainly charged with discussing Basic Dental subjects. Non-dental topics are usually discussed by different experts who are either UP faculty or have training from institutions like the UP College of Medicine, the UP College of Public Health, the UP College of Law and from the National Teacher’s Training Center for the Health Professions in UP Manila.
Teaching strategies used range from the standard lectures and case presentations to discussions of simulated Board Examination questions and small group discussions. Concise handouts per discipline are provided for.
