Delivering clinical excellence is fundamental to the success of a 21st century dental school's mission and yet, our ability to define clinical excellence in practice remains surprisingly elusive. In this paper, Peter Thomson explores the complex and multi-faceted nature of clinical excellence, confirming its pivotal role throughout knowledge creation, teaching, training, lifelong education and clinical practice. Ultimately, our ability to deliver optimal patient care, manage new and emergent disease and enhance prevention and health promotion for the future require dental education and clinical service to be better aligned and more fully integrated with general healthcare provision for all.
