Dental education is currently under scrutiny in order to most appropriately address community needs for the new millennium. Educational outcomes need to include a commitment to life-long learning, and an emphasis on professional ethics and moral responsibility. These needs are supported by new forms of information delivery with a focus on the electronic media, by student centred and self-directed coursework, and by clinical stimulation. Additionally, at the University of Sydney, selection will follow a first degree. This will allow candidates time for an informed decision to be made for their future professional career and for a period of experience in the tertiary education system.

Reactions following the administration of iodine are well documented in general radiography, but are unusual following sialography. A patient who experienced an adverse reaction following sialography with an iodine-based, low osmolar, contrast medium, Hexabrix 320, is presented. The reaction consisted of severe shoulder and back pain 24 h after the procedure. A skin rash was identified involving the right axilla, groin and elbow, with swelling visible around the right elbow joint. It was not possible to distinguish, on the basis of the available evidence, between an anaphylactoid and idiosyncratic allergic reaction. © 1993.
