Oral Rehabilitation - DENT5238

Year - 2018

This course teaches students to have an evidenced-based approach to clinical dentistry. It is the foundation of clinical practice in this discipline and covers all clinical aspects of prevention, repair and maintenance of the primary and permanent dentition in children, adolescents and adults. 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.
