The interactive CBD Portfolio is a unique educational resource.

Each discipline in Dentistry has a room, where members can share and comment on cases.  This is a unique and fantastic resource that allows Fellows and Senior Fellows to share their cases, and members to interact with them.

  • Case-based learning CBL is a teaching tool used in a variety of medical and dental fields using human cases to impart relevance and aid in connecting theory to practice. The impact of CBL can reach from simple knowledge gains to changing clinical practice and patient care outcomes positively, by reflecting and learning from the management of interesting cases or even errors and mistakes (MacLean, 2016)[1]


    The case-based studies present an interactive, peer reviewed opportunity to highlight different choices of treatment and management strategies, an unusual case feature or an interesting problem and how it had been managed. In some cases, interactive discussions on the decision-making process can be used to explore the reasons for achieving an unwanted or less than satisfactory outcome. In other cases, clinical excellence and key stages to achieve best results can be presented and explored. 

    Case discussions are intended to improve standard of care by highlighting:

a)    How a particular problem may have been managed
b)   Assessment and treatment planning a particularly challenging case
c)    Diagnostic imaging
d)   Hard and soft tissue grafting
e)    Complications and problem solving
f)    White and Pink Aesthetics
g)   Communication skills
h)   Anatomical and functional features

  • Learning Outcome:

    After reading the case study, the reader should be able to:

·       Describe the factors that led to the end-results or outcomes presented 
·       Learn how to change or improve clinical practice
·       Discuss how the learning from positive outcomes can stimulate the team to reflect on ‘why this was successful’ and apply this learning to other clinical situations using the principle of ‘how can I’.
  • Guidance Notes for Writing the Case Study:

    Please ensure that you use simple conversational language so that it is accessible to a wider group

    Remember the following:

  • -       Remember who you are writing this case study for
  • -       Use simple language and avoid jargon
  • -       Be concise and clear providing relevant detail 
  • -       Use short words and sentences 
  • -       Ensure that active voice is used
  • -       Use bullet points as opposed to big paragraphs 
  • Please submit your case study on the template


  • 1.     Introduction
  • 2.     Background (if relevant)

    3.     Assessment, Treatment options and Treatment Planning (when relevant) 

    4.     Treatment Provided

    5.     Outcomes

    6.     Reflection including how this has changed your clinical practice & self critique

      • CBL platform sections:

        Each section or online “learning room” will be lead by a moderator who will have the final authority to accept or reject submission of an uploaded case.
