This subject is only available to those students enrolled in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery
This subject integrates a clinical program with research that underpins evidence based practice. Students participate in a clinical program (the foundations of which were developed in DS3101:12 Introduction to Clinical Dentistry and DS3102:09 Clinical Dentistry 1) that exposes them to a wide range of clinical practice. This allows the development of competency in procedures which are examined at the end of Year 4. This includes further exposure to the disciplines focused on children (Paedodontics and Orthodontics), adults (Restorative, Periodontics and Endodontics) and Gerodontics and Oral Medicine. The cross-age disciplines of Oral Surgery and Restorative Dentistry are a strong focus of the clinical program. This dental specific content is augmented by a medicine and surgery component and has a strong ethical base. The development of clinical skills continues across the year to achieve competencies in all the key areas of dentistry. Ethical, evidence-based practice is reinforced throughout Year 4 as students deepen their theoretical and applied knowledge about research in dental science. Groups of students build on earlier studies by designing a research project and developing an ethics application.
Satisfactory attendance is required at (pre)clinical placements. Satisfactory academic and professional standard, as described in the College Assessment Guidelines, must be achieved in order to progress
