Dental education has changed a lot in the last decades alone. If ten years students were receiving mainly frontal teaching nowadays they are actively involved in the educational process. Being an educator in the dental field has become more a mission than a job and students should be treated as partners with full rights.
The international associations like IADS and YDW have a crucial role in fulfilling the education process of dental students and creating new opinion leaders in the field.
