Introduction: Composite resins restoration requires a rigorous approach in its implementation, which should be integrated into the learning process. The objective of this study is to assess the immediate quality of filling carried out by students in the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital Center. Materials and methods: This is an evaluative prospective study conducted from April 1, 2018 to May 31, 2018. Direct coronal restorations performed by 1st year PhD students were assessed using well-established clinical and radiographic criteria and data were gathered using a form. Results: Restorations were performed in 44 patients. Most of them (56.8%) were performed on first maxillary incisors. The fillings contour was in line with the tooth morphology for 39 (88.6%) fillings. Eleven (25%) fillings have gap apparent on radiography. Of the 44 assessed fillings, seventeen (38.6%) received a final score of “Not good” and 27 (61.4%) were rated “Good”. All patients were satisfied with their restorations. Conclusion: This study showed that students perform sufficient high quality restorations. However, the restoration emergence profile and the polishing still need to be improved.
