DENTG 1636L: Oral Health Sciences VI Lab

Credits 7.0

These continuously running laboratory courses, which are simulation clinic modules, take the student from dental morphology and occlusion and through basic to advanced clinical dentistry in operative dentistry, fixed and removable prosthodontics (including design and fabrication of CAD/CAM restorations and implant placement and restoration), rotary endodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, oral medicine, periodontics, orthodontics and temporomandibular function and dysfunction introducing therapeutic appliance diagnosis and fabrication. The courses are organized into tooth systems. Each system integrates such topics as growth and development, cariology, radiology, and dental material science into the core of restorative procedures from pediatric to geriatric patients. Simulated clinical competencies integrate radiographic diagnosis, basic science, and treatment planning in conjunction with typical psychomotor skills to enhance the comprehensive preclinical learning experience.
