Commissioned by the UK Committee of Postgraduate Dental Deans and Directors (COPDEND), the purpose of this work was to establish UK guidelines for dental educators. The final document comprises 79 statements, in eight domains. Each domain has four zones related to what dental educators (1) know, (2) do with members of the dental team as learners, (3) do with other dental educators as learners and (4) lead on. Launched in November 2008, the document provides a framework of good practice for use in the employment, development and management of dental educators in the UK. The guidelines are readily available from the COPDEND website. A key purpose of this paper is to report on the process of development and a central part of that was the integration of feedback and consultation on early drafts. These processes elicited a total of 102 responses. Issues raised in consultation included: (1) how the zones interrelate; (2) differentiation between domains; (3) measurability; and (4) implementation challenges. This paper includes our responses to these issues.
