Restorative Paediatric Dentistry Part 1 - DENT5034

Year - 2018

This course covers all the clinical aspects of prevention, repair and maintenance of the primary and permanent dentition in children and adolescents. The importance of sound diagnostic criteria leading to the creation of rational treatment plans is emphasised. The candidate should develop a sound understanding of differing treatment philosophies, materials and techniques. The importance of flexibility in treatment techniques to coincide with the advances in dental materials is stressed. It will aim to ensure that Trainees have an evidenced-based approach to clinical paediatric dentistry and are expert in the delivery of clinical care. This course will be the foundation of clinical practice in this discipline. They should become proficient in the restoration of the primary and young permanent dentition and understand the uses and limitations of restorative and endodontic materials used in paediatric dentistry.
