Abstract

Dental education has a profound history both in pre and post independent India. The evolution of dental education has been mainly based traditional practices which were followed in the west. Young teachers followed their teachers and their practices. Serious research has happened in the field of dental education and teachers have realized the importance of specifying the goals of dental education; to be precise the learning goals rather than the teaching goals. Without specifying the goals and precise objectives, the progress of dental education will be like a ship without rudder in the vast ocean.
