Abstract: I qualified 32 years ago in 1983 and can, sadly, still remember that one of the questions in my final written examination was 'To compare and contrast the properties of the different plastic materials available to restore posterior teeth’. After varied general jobs in primary and secondary care, my career choice was to undertake specialist training in Restorative Dentistry. I completed my certificate of completion for specialist training (CCST) in Restorative Dentistry 11 years after qualification in 1994.
