COURSE OVERVIEW:

Participants of this course, which has been designed specifically for dental hygienists, will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to place technically sound and cosmetically acceptable 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 at a community clinic where participants restore teeth during live patient care, alternating with lab time to refine technique.

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 during the first week, 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 (BOTH amalgam and composite) 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. The passing score for this evaluation is 70 per cent.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Fabricate and safely place clinically and cosmetically acceptable permanent restorations (both direct and indirect), involving but not limited to the selection of client-appropriate materials, matrix system placement, anatomy reformation, retraction cord placement, esthetic considerations, occlusal adjustment, and the polishing/ Finishing of restorations
  • Fabricate and place clinically acceptable temporary restorations
  • Assess the integrity and the appropriate procedures and techniques involved in the placement of implantsupported prosthetics
  • Recognize and prevent errors and potential complications associated with dental restorations
