506 College of Dental Medicine CDM 2250—Endodontic Clinical Lecture This course enhances the formative knowledge and understanding of the key concepts in the provision of endodontic procedures for the predoctoral student. Within this spectrum, predoctoral students are also instructed on how to recognize clinical situations that are beyond their skills and scope of procedural applications. In doing so, the reason and rationale for referral to expert sources are emphasized. CDM 3621—Clinical Endodontic Practice I D3 predoctoral students are taught the application of clinical procedures in the management of single-root and multirooted teeth. Diagnosis is emphasized, in addition to the proper sequencing of treatment procedures in alignment with the established treatment plan, along with procedural record documentation and patient education and management. CDM 4621—Clinical Endodontic Practice II D4 predoctoral students are guided in the application of anesthetic techniques, pain control, patient management, emergency procedures, and endodontic procedural applications in a wide range of anatomical situations. Competency in the provision of all treatment procedures, including patient management, is expected to be demonstrated prior to graduation. This will be done through the use of verbal, written, and practical summative evaluations. CDM 400H—Endodontic Honors Program The honors program in endodontics is offered to D4 predoctoral students, in addition to the other specialty programs. Candidate selection is based on approval of the associate dean for academic affairs and the director of clinics, as well as the specific criteria established in each department that offers this program. Honors students will be afforded the opportunity to assist in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and provision of care in complex cases. Each department will provide the aspiring predoctoral students with course outlines and educational objectives that will enhance their levels of competency in the provision of patient care. CDM 403E—Elective Program in Endodontics The elective program provides D4 predoctoral students with experiences at an advanced level, in both formative knowledge and potential clinical applications. Students will be provided with the opportunity to attend postdoctorallevel seminars and to prepare special programs that may encompass visual presentations, poster presentations, and table clinic presentations, in addition to the development of publishable manuscripts.

Tejera CDM 2040—Pharmacology, Analgesia, and Local Anesthesia I In this didactic, lecture-oriented course, students will be presented with information concerning the delivery of local anesthesia, including the application of pertinent anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. The content in this preclinic/ didactic course is applicable to direct patient care for local anesthesia, patient evaluation, and surgical procedures. CDM 2150—Oral Surgery I This didactic, lecture-oriented course with formal presentations will be integrated logically in sequence, incorporating a pertinent review of medical emergencies and concepts of internal medicine as relates to the medical history of the patient. Students will be provided with information about oral surgery procedures— including surgical extractions, pre-prosthetic surgery, complications, and biopsy—concerning the management of the oral and maxillofacial surgical patient. CDM 2170—Pharmacology, Analgesia, and Local Anesthesia II This didactic, lecture-oriented course reinforces information presented concerning the delivery of local anesthesia— including the application of pertinent anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology—presented in CDM 2040. Students also will receive basic information about alternative techniques of pain and anxiety control, such as oral sedation, nitrous oxide, IV sedation, general anesthesia, and acupuncture, as well as prescription writing, including consideration of the impact of prescribing practices and substance use disorders. Additionally, students will participate in a local anesthesia techniques lab seminar that will prepare them to successfully administer local anesthetic in a live-patient format. In a small group design, students will alternate being the operator, the patient, and the observer assistant. Each student will demonstrate competency in technical aspects of local anesthetic administration and in applying pharmacological principles to the selection of local anesthetics and pain management. CDM 3040—Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery II This didactic, lecture-oriented course expands upon the background begun in the second semester of the second year. Formal presentations to review major trauma, craniofacial conditions, TMJ disorders, head and neck pathology such as oral cancer treatment and reconstruction, systemic conditions that affect head and neck, and complications will be incorporated logically.
