 Course Description

Designed specifically for dental hygienists, participants of this course will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to place technically-sound and clinically acceptable dental restorations using a variety of restorative materials.

In preparation for the course, registrants must complete a six-week self-study period using the required textbook and laboratory manual. Participants will receive prepared model teeth, to practice restorative techniques using armamentarium and supplies (amalgam and composite) available in their usual practice settings.

On the first day of the course, participants will submit their restored models for evaluation and feedback.

The three-week course is comprised of pre-clinical lectures and lab work during the first week, followed by two weeks of rotation at a community dental clinic where participants restore teeth prepared by a dentist during the live patient care, alternating with lab time to refine technique.

Participants of this course will be evaluated for both their knowledge, and competency in placing clinically acceptable dental restorations (amalgam and composite). The passing score for this evaluation is 70 per cent.
