CED Position on dental professions in ESCO

12/ January
2018

The CED raises concern about the classification of dental occupations in the European Classification of Skills/Competences, Occupations and Qualifications (ESCO). Reviewing the first full version of ESCO, the CED noted that some definitions are not the same than those preliminary consulted with the stakeholders, particularly the occupation of “Dental assistants and therapists” and “Medical and Dental Prosthetic Technicians”. The CED calls on the EU institutions, to revise the dental occupations in ESCO, taking into account the potential consequences the current version can have on patient safety and quality of care.
