This subject is only available to those students enrolled in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery
This subject integrates a clinical program with conducting research that underpins evidence based practice. Students continue to participate in the clinical program that exposes them to the provision of general dental clinical care, including disciplines focused on children (Paedodontics and Orthodontics) and adults (Gerodontics and Oral Medicine). An important part of the subject is the management of people with special needs. The cross-age disciplines of Oral Surgery and Restorative Dentistry remain a strong core focus of the clinical program. The development of clinical skills continues across the year to achieve competencies in all the key areas of dentistry. The research strand of DS4102:12 Clinical Dentistry 3 continues to reinforce the research processes, principles, methods and skills required for evidence based practice in dental science. In this subject, groups of students conduct the research projects designed in DS4101:12 Clinical Dentistry 2. The students will give presentations of their study results.
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.
