Performance criteria in preclinical denture prosthodontics.


This article has reported on a preliminary study of selected criteria used by The University of Michigan, School of Dentistry Complete Denture Department. Self-evaluation opportunities by students and assessment of performance by instructors using objective criteria have been developed for each phase of complete denture prosthodontics and placed within a text illustrating methods to reach the desired standards. Agreement between all evaluations of the selected criteria studied occurred on 75% of the responses, while agreement by instructors experienced with criteria evaluations occurred on 81%. Further, extensive study into quality assessment must be initiated within the educational setting before valid and reliable criteria can be developed for the private sector. Additional research will be critical to peer-review mechanisms which attempt to be more than grievance committees.
