A model of accreditation for dentists with a special interest (DwSIs) in minor oral surgery (MOS) was developed when commissioning a new MOS service. The aim of accreditation was to ensure quality in the service provided by performers. The integrated assessment of prospective performers included an interview, review of evidence of experience, a practice inspection and a practical skills exercise (PSE). Success in the accreditation process was contingent on success in all four parts. This paper focuses on the delivery and utility of the PSE. Prospective performers were asked to complete two simulated MOS exercises on pig jaws, which were assessed according to national criteria.
