Expanding and refining the skill sets of postgraduates specialists is required by the many current and changing demands of dental science education and research. To meet this challenge, the Indian Board of Micro Restorative and Endodontics under the aegis of the Indian Association of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics has begun a fellowship program in Micro Restorative and Endodontics; the main aim being to improve the knowledge and skills of these specialists empowering them to go a step higher and beyond their areas of specialization. The objectives of the fellowship course are as follows: (1) Achieving necessary skills in managing routine and advanced restorative and endodontic scenarios using modern magnification technology. (2) Constantly enhancing the existing knowledge by pursuing new arenas in magnification technology. (3) Complete understanding and application of cutting edge research in the practice of microrestorative and endodontics. (4) Ensuring the highest possible patient-centric quality of care. Learning experiences shall be provided under the guidance and supervision of competent mentors at predesignated centers all over India. The learning strategies will be through workshops, contact sessions, and learning assignments. The carefully designed curriculum shall prepare the restorative dentists and endodontists, to be an autonomous, effective, safe, and a compassionate professional, who practices collaboratively in a variety of clinical and academic setups, responsive to the current and future needs of the restorative and endodontic health-care system. A passion for microdentistry would be a great way to make a positive difference to your patient care and creative work.
