NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

College of Dental Medicine 513 classmates. The class is divided into three groups for ease of management in the clinic. Group assignments will be posted on Canvas. Students will be assigned to Group A, B, or C. They will attend the rotations as indicated in the course schedule CDM 1155—Integrated Restorative Dental Sciences I Lecture The IRDS I lecture course is an integrated program that includes objectives from the following disciplines: dental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, biomaterials, cariology, and operative dentistry. This course presents the anatomical and functional differences of teeth, how they relate to each other, and the application of this knowledge to various phases of dentistry. It presents the characteristics differentiating each tooth and the variations that can occur from one patient to the next. The course will introduce concepts of anatomy and normal function of the stomatognathic system. While learning about the medical model of caries management, students will be introduced to dental caries: disease, diagnosis, preventive and remineralization treatments, prognosis, and outcomes. Understanding the role of caries risk assessment in restorative decisions, students will apply principles of minimally invasive dentistry. Students will learn about dental biomaterials, material selection, preparation design, and restoration. The IRDS course integrates the principles from these disciplines in order to prepare students for a comprehensive-care, competency-based, clinical curriculum. CDM 1156—Integrated Restorative Dental Sciences I Laboratory The IRDS I laboratory course is an integrated, hands-on program that runs concurrently with the lecture component and includes objectives from the following disciplines: dental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, dental biomaterials, cariology, and operative dentistry. This course presents the anatomical and functional differences of teeth, how they relate to each other, and the application of this knowledge to various phases of dentistry. It presents the characteristics differentiating each tooth and the variations that can occur fromone patient to the next. The course will introduce concepts of anatomy and normal function of the stomatognathic system. Utilization of wax carving and add-on techniques are introduced. With an understanding of the role of caries risk assessment in restorative decisions and knowledge of the mechanical and physical properties of the dental materials, students will learn principles of cavity preparation; material selection; and proper use of bonding systems and composite resin, alginate, and gypsum. The IRDS I laboratory course integrates the principles from these disciplines in order to prepare students for a comprehensive-care, competencybased, clinical curriculum. Emphasis will be placed on teaching students how to develop the fine psychomotor skills that are necessary to practice dentistry. CDM 1205—Primary Care and Public Health I This course will introduce students to fundamentals of public health and its relevance in dentistry. Health care delivery systems, as well as oral health status and disparities across the population, will be discussed. Students will be instructed on legal and ethical principles applied to public health. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to develop their own strategic plan involving a dental health initiative. CDM 1255—Integrated Restorative Dental Sciences Lecture II The IRDS II course is an integrated program that includes objectives from the following disciplines: dental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, operative dentistry, dental biomaterials, cariology, and fixed prosthodontics. The course will continue building on concepts of anatomy and normal function of the stomatognathic system. While applying cariology principles, students learn about dental biomaterials; material selection; preparation; design; and proper use of amalgam, composite resin, glass ionomers, and castingmetals (gold, etc.). This course will introduce the theory and principles of fixed prosthodontics, and its role in the overall treatment of the patient. The IRDS course integrates the principles from these disciplines in order to prepare students for a comprehensive-care, competency-based, clinical curriculum. CDM 1266—Integrated Restorative Dental Sciences Laboratory II The IRDS II laboratory course is an integrated, hands-on, simulation program and a continuation of the IRDS I laboratory course. It runs concurrently with the lecture component and includes objectives from the following disciplines: dental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, operative dentistry, dental biomaterials, cariology, and fixed prosthodontics. The IRDS course integrates the principles from these disciplines in order to prepare students for a comprehensive-care, competency-based, clinical curriculum. CDM 1357—Case-Based Integrated Restorative Sciences III The IRDS III course is a continuation of the fall and winter IRDS courses. Course content fromdental anatomy, fundamentals of occlusion, operative dentistry, dental biomaterials, cariology, prosthodontics, and record keeping are integrated into a casebased format utilizing knowledge and critical thinking skills obtained in the fall and winter semesters. CDM 2001—Honors Peer Tutoring II The Honors Peer Tutoring courses will provide an opportunity for NSU dental students who achieved a grade of 90 or higher in CDM predoctoral course(s) to assist colleague dental students with acquisition, review, understanding, reinforcement, knowledge, and skills content in the respective D1, D2, and D3 courses. The peer tutor will be provided with background information on process, expectations, and resource information to effectively facilitate provision of individual peer tutoring for
