DENTG 1510: Preventive Dental Medicine I

Credits 1.0
These two courses cover important concepts in preventive dental medicine. Through lectures and hands-on exercises in the Simulation Clinic, students learn how to establish their own oral health. They also learn the science and practice of oral health assessment and preventive dental treatment modalities. Course instruction focuses on ways to promote one’s own oral health, the health of one’s patients, and the health of one’s community at large. Methods learned and forms used in the courses are incorporated into subsequent patient care in the Dental Institute.
