This paper presents the profile and competences for the European Dentist as approved by the General Assembly of the Association for Dental Education in Europe at its annual meeting held in Cardiff in September 2004. A task-force drafted the document, which was then sent to all European Dental Schools. Reactions received were used to amend the document. European dental schools are expected to adhere to the profile and the 17 major competences but the supporting competences may vary in detail between schools. The document will be reviewed in 5 years time. This paper will be disseminated to ministries of health, national dental associations and dental specialty associations or societies in Europe and these organisations will be asked to offer their comments. This information will be used in the reviewing process to be started in 2007. It is hoped that the availability of this document will assist dental schools in Europe to further harmonize and improve the quality of their curricula.
