    Abstract

    This publication reports a meeting of the stakeholders of dental education in the UK, hosted by the Council of Heads and Deans of Dental Schools (CHDDS). The meeting, held in Manchester, UK on 4–5 October 2007, occurred within days of the seventh anniversary of a dental hospitals and schools policy retreat hosted by the then Council of Deans of Dental Schools and the Association for Dental Hospitals. The proceedings of the retreat, intended to raise awareness and stimulate discussion on matters important to the planning of the future provision of dental education in the UK, were published in the form of a supplement to the European Journal for Dental Education (1). The principal purpose of the meeting of stakeholders of dental education reported in the present publication was to raise and stimulate discussions on issues considered important to the further development of dental education in the UK. A secondary, but by no means less important purpose of the meeting was to give members of the CHDDS opportunity to interact with other stakeholders in dental education and, in the process, facilitate a shared understanding of existing and, in certain respects increasing tensions and challenges in the UK dental education system.
