Over the last decade there has been a scientific and technological advance in the field of dentistry,which requires new educational initiatives and continuous professional development, also instruction as a medium has become sophisticated both in substance and methods. One must realize the importance in instruction technique versus education in scientific and critical thinking.
Our profession as a whole is heading towards an increase in specialized clinical services and specialties, as well as in number of individuals who can afford them, also along with this is seen that the complexity of disease pattern continues to change and grow among various populations. This has lead to questioning of the traditional methods used with context of evidence-based rationale. Also increase in diagnostic and preventive measures in field has lead to the requirement of increase knowledge in terms of microbial and human genetics, as well as molecular medicine. Hence integration of research and induction of dental care into other allied medical fields and education systems is the requirement of the hour without which dentistry risks losing its status as a learned profession to becoming a vocational school program.
We need to look at our educational system from a broader perspective by introducing evidence based educational methods, increasing our knowledge to professions complimentary to dentistry
while maintaining the status of our clinical and educational procedure. The role of guide also needs to be relooked at from not being able to guide the student but being able to assess their performance based on their knowledge and technical skills by engaging them in multiple situations thereby reflecting their critical thinking.
Guide is more than a lecturer, changing the role to more of an information provider, facilitator, mentor, student assessor, curriculum evaluator, resource material creator and study guide producer in short a multifaceted role.
