Statement of the Portuguese Dental Association on the CED and ADEE call for compliance with PQD (non-CED document)

Replies by the Portuguese Universities to the CED and ADEE statement (non-CED document)

The statement is in response to recent unauthorised education practices which were denounced and judged illegal by a French Supreme Court judgement in 2017. Diplomas listed in the PQD provide a guarantee of having completed minimum dental training. Knowing that some students attended the first 2 years of their dental studies in illegal institutions, the CED and ADEE question if they meet the minimum legal requirements of the PQD.

Graduating European dentists that are responsible for the safe and effective delivery of dental care, that receive a formation qualification to expected European requirements are the priority for CED and ADEE in order to remain committed to the founding values and the mobility of Dentists within European Union.
