Abstract

Objective: To identify meaningful factors influencing the dental professional’s transit within Communities of Practice (CoPs).

Results: Coding led to the identification of four progressive and interlinked emergent themes related to the meanings that the individual participants placed on their journeys undertaken from peripheral participation to the centre of CoP: Self Awareness; Social Awareness; Cultural Awareness and Transformatory Awareness.

The implications for practice and suggestions for other research are included.
