The Conservative Dentistry Specialist Program has been running since the Decree of the Director General of Higher Education No 139 / Dikti / Kep / 1984 and No. 141 / Dikti / Kep / 1984 which made the Conservative Dentistry Specialist Program one of the 7 (seven) specialist dentistry education programs.
At present the dental profession specializing in dental conservation is very much needed by the community because of the still high prevalence of dental caries and pulp tissue diseases and periapeks in Indonesia. This supports the dentistry paradigm in maintaining and improving the function of the stomatognathic system. So that efforts are needed to prevent, treat and rehabilitate dental hard tissue disorders / diseases and periapical disorders so as not to result in tooth loss. Then the professional work assessment will be based on evidence based dentistry, namely the performance to overcome the diseases / disorders mentioned above based on the use of valid current evidence in patient management.
The vision of the Conservative Dentistry Specialist Program is to produce international-minded conservation specialist dentists who are able to develop knowledge and use the latest technology based on the use of valid evidence in patient management so that an Indonesian dental conservation specialist dentist must have capabilities consisting of 3 domains including professionalism, Academic Advance Abilities and Advance Clinical Expertise.
