The fifth edition of the EU Manual of Dental Practice was published on 30 June 2014, by the Council of European Dentists (CED). As with all earlier editions, it was prepared and designed by a team from Cardiff University.
The manual is a comprehensive reference document describing the legal and ethical regulations, dental training requirements, oral health systems and the organisation of dental practice in the 32 European (EU and EEA) countries. Its primary aim is to provide detailed information for dentists and dental professionals who are considering working in another country. Beyond this, earlier editions of the manual have proved to be an indispensable resource for educational institutions, governments and regulators. It is widely cited in professional and peer-reviewed journals.
The Cardiff University team commenced work on the new edition in June 2013. The team comprised principal author Dr Anthony Kravitz OBE, Professor Alison Bullock, Professor Jon Cowpe and Ms Emma Barnes. The completed version was delivered to the CED in May 2014.
The 2014 edition can be downloaded free of charge from the CED website.
