College of Dental Medicine 511 CDM 2995—Clinical Practice of Dentistry Fundamentals This combined lecture and laboratory course is an integrated program that includes objectives from the following disciplines: oral diagnosis, oral medicine, dental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, operative dentistry, dental biomaterials, cariology, endodontics, periodontics, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and fixed prosthodontics, OMFS, and use of the EHR system. The clinical practice of dentistry program builds on the foundational knowledge learned in the D1 and D2 curriculum in order to prepare students for a comprehensive care competency-based clinical program. The course focuses on the application of the learning objectives obtained throughout the D1 and D2 curriculum. The student will be presented with de-identified patient cases and will be expected to prepare comprehensive treatment plans for the cases, as well as perform some of the necessary procedures in the simulation laboratory on typodonts. CDM 3120—Implant Restorative Dentistry Lecture This course is one of comparative implantology, which emphasizes the biological background related to implant systems. Demonstrations and case presentations will be provided. Evidence-based studies are referenced. Hands-on demonstrations and simulation of the use of implant parts is part of the course. CDM 3130—Cosmetic Dentistry Lecture This course provides formal lecture presentations in conjunction with preclinical laboratory hands-on exercises to prepare students with the necessary skills to perform esthetic dental procedures as discussed in lectures. The D3 student will learn the sequence of diagnostic steps required for a successful planning and treatment of the esthetic zone, as well as different treatment modalities and indications of use for all ceramic and indirect composite resin systems for the posterior teeth. New technologies and systems will be discussed and students will have the option of presenting a treatment-planned case to their classmates and faculty members. CDM 3131—Cosmetic Dentistry Laboratory This course provides preclinical laboratory hands-on exercises to prepare students with the necessary skills to performesthetic dental procedures as discussed in lectures. The D3 student will learn the sequence of diagnostic steps and clinical procedures required for a successful planning and treatment of the esthetic zone, as well as different treatment modalities, along with indications of use for all ceramic and indirect composite resin systems for the posterior teeth. CDM 3200—Clinical Occlusion Occlusion is that branch of dentistry that applies knowledge of oral anatomy and biomechanical principles of jaw motion to clinical practice, including the relationship of the maxillary and mandibular teeth and the muscles of mastication. To fully understand the stomatognathic system, dental students should have a broad understanding of embryology, histology, growth and development, head and neck anatomy, dental anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology. Students will be responsible for incorporating the knowledge from previous courses to aid in their understanding of occlusion. They will apply these concepts in a hands-on clinical setting incorporating different modalities and techniques, including intra-oral scanning (IOS) technology. CDM 3260—Masticatory SystemDisorders (MSD): A Multidisciplinary Approach This is an integrated approach to teaching dental students about the clinical evaluation and diagnosis of patients that present with pain and/or dysfunction in themasticatory system (temporomandibular disorders) and other related orofacial pain conditions. Multiple disciplines will present to allow students to have a complete understanding of the normal function of the masticatory system, occlusal analysis, and occlusal diagnosis and its effect on the TMD and the masticatory system. Students will utilize knowledge from the course to diagnose and make recommendations for patient treatment referrals from their own family of patients. CDM 3410—Clinical Fixed Prosthodontics I This clinical experience consists of preparing and placing anterior and posterior fixed partial dentures and single coronal restorations. Restorations may be of full gold, metal-ceramic, or all ceramic. Restorations on implants are an integral part of the clinical experience. CAD/ CAM restorations are included in this clinical experience. All clinical treatment is accomplished under the direct supervision of faculty members. A clinical rotation with the postgraduate prosthodontics residents is part of this course. CDM 3411—Clinical Removable Prosthodontics I Clinical application of preclinical skills in complete and removable partial dentures, overdentures on teeth, and implants are accomplished on patients. All patients are treated in the comprehensive care format with emphasis on the whole head and neck. All clinical treatment is accomplished under the direct supervision of faculty members. CDM 3530—Evidenced-Based Dentistry in Clinical Practice This lecture series presents historical aspects of the development of critical thinking in health care. The course provides the student with different sources for accessing scientific information and reviews scientific articles and principles in observational and epidemiological studies. It stresses the importance of evidenced-based cases and the principles of clinical decision-making and statistics methodology.
