Abstract In March 2005 the Scottish Executive Health Department published the 'Action plan for improving oral health and modernising NHS dental services in Scotland'. Six areas required major new educational input: pre-qualification education, workforce supply, career development, dental practice and team development, clinical effectiveness/quality improvement and support for the oral health strategy. Targets from the action plan that have been fully achieved include: 1) undergraduate student numbers have reached the target output of 135 per year; 2) vocational training numbers match graduate numbers; 3) a vocational training scheme for dental therapists has been developed and numbers of VT places will match the number of qualifying therapists; 4) a new strategy to support dental nurse training will allow an additional 200 dental nurse training places by 2007; and 5) a clinical effectiveness programme has developed a rolling programme of guidelines, the first one of which, on conscious sedation, was released in May. The dental action plan has provided Scotland with the best opportunity for modernising dental services since the NHS was established. This paper describes some of the educational developments that will ensure NHS dental services in Scotland are 'fit for the future' and 'delivering for health'.
