This subject is only available to those students enrolled in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery
Students undertake comprehensive patient care in the dental clinic within the School and as a clinical placement. This subject continues the clinical skills development initiated in the first semester subject DS3101:12 Introduction to Clinical Dentistry. The focal clinical activities include increased exposure to more complex medical and dental histories and using imaging techniques to assist diagnosis and treatment planning. The program will develop skills in routine and advanced restorative procedures and reinforce the skills learned in the simulated clinical environment and in DS3101:12 Introduction to Clinical Dentistry. Students' active participation in the clinical program exposes them to the provision of comprehensive dental care, under supervision, in a clinical environment and includes paediatric dentistry, and an introduction to orthodontics, oral surgery and periodontology. The development of clinical skills continues across the year in all of the key competencies of clinical dentistry.
