ORE Part 2 Exam:
Part 2 is designed for candidates to demonstrate practical clinical skills.
There are four components to Part 2 of the ORE:
- An operative test on a dental manikin (DM)
Candidates are required to perform three procedures over a period of three hours. These procedures primarily involve the preparation and restoration of teeth, but may also include other procedures where appropriate simulation can allow assessment of operative skills.
DM guidance is available on the exam centre's website here: http://www.orepart2.org.uk/index.php/guidance
2. An objective structured clinical examination (OSCE)
This is where candidates visit a series of ‘stations’ which test their clinical skills. These may include history-taking and assessment, communication skills (such as an explanation of problems and treatment plans), judgement and decision making, ethics and attitudes, and clinical examination. The series of stations may cover aspects of the following: behavioural sciences, human disease, law, ethics and professionalism, clinical dentistry, restorative dentistry, paediatric dentistry, orthodontics, preventive dentistry, dental public health, comprehensive oral care, oral surgery, oral medicine, oral pathology and oral microbiology, dental radiology and imaging.

3.A diagnostic and treatment planning exercise (DTP)
This involves an actor who will provide an appropriate history (but will not be examined), together with relevant additional information such as photographs, radiographs, study models or results of other special tests. The exercise may involve any of the above aspects of clinical dentistry.
