Record of Competence

Delivery Methods

1 hour online class every Sunday from 10am - 11am delivered by Dr. Ragudhas.


The record of competence is a form of work based continual assessment. The record of competence is a written record of workplace activities carried out under the observation of a GDC registrant.
The Record of Competence is in three parts;

Part A
Practical Competence Assessment Sheets (PCAS)
To provide evidence of your involvement in the taking of a minimum of 50 radiographs that must include at least:
10 x dental panoramic radiographs,10 x pairs of bitewing radiographs,20 x paralleling technique periapical radiographs 10 x types of other radiographs which must include: 2 x bisecting angle technique periapicals, 2 x occlusal views (can be undertaken on a dry skull), 2 x cephalometric lateral skull views (can be undertaken by simulation) and 4 x any ‘other’ type of radiograph
Guidance for the completion of the PCAS is provided and each case must be completed with both the dental nurse and the qualified witness present. Before signing each case, the witness must provide feedback on the radiograph taken and ensure that the candidate has given the correct quality rating and appropriate reasons for grades 2 or 3 quality rating.
The setting should normally be within your own place of work but may be elsewhere if appropriate to the particular technique; however, you must still gain hands on practical involvement.

Part B
Expanded Case Studies
You must choose three patients for the production of detailed case studies:
1 x dental panoramic radiograph, 1 x bitewing radiograph and 1 x paralleling technique periapical radiograph.

Part C
Supplementary Outcomes
The content of the supplementary outcomes includes -Oblique lateral mandible radiographs, Bisected angle periapical radiographs, Lateral cephalometric radiographs, a copy of the dental practice Local Rules and a record of continuing professional development relating to dental radiography e.g. background reading, meetings, courses.
