Participants of this course, which has been designed specifically for dental hygienists, will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to place technically-sound dental restorations prepared by a dentist. The three-week course is comprised of pre-clinical lectures and lab work during the first week, followed by two weeks of rotation for hands-on clinical experience and lab exercises to enhance skills and efficiency. The two week rotation will include three hands-on continuing education activities, including documenting medical history and taking vital signs, performing intra- and extra-oral examinations, developing care plans, performing periodontal instrumentation.

Prior to course participation, registrants must complete a six-week, self-study period using the required textbook and laboratory manual. Participants will be evaluated on this material prior to engaging in classroom and clinical activities at the University of Manitoba. Prepared model teeth will be shipped to course registrants at least six weeks prior to course participation, with the expectation that students will practice restorative techniques using the armamentarium and supplies available in their usual practice settings. On the first day of class, students will submit their restored models for evaluation. Students of this course will be evaluated for both their knowledge, and competency in placing acceptable dental restorations.  Passing grade for the course is 70 percent.
