  4. Certification .In the 2 years time we have theoretical exam - multiple choice questions plus practical part consisting of patient analysis , questions about theoretical and practical matters. Recertification. During 5 years time dentists have to collect 250 credit points.100 of them gained in the courses determined by LDA , others visiting courses organized by companies producing dental materials , congreses , hands on courses , taking part with presentations during different meetings.( active and passive part )

  5. Myths and reality. - Problems with legislators - residency in general dentistry -Recently changed law about that and accepted proposal to have a certificate after graduation of university ( increased role of LDA at students final exams , establishment of summer training for students after 3 and 4 year of studies , more credit points for practical classes. ) -Whether is it enough to have only one registra for dentists due to the fact of increased amount of foreigh students at the university -Those 250 credit points are enough to keep the level of our dentists and how much of them showed be acquired in the way we pointed out . What do we have to change in our system ???
