This module has been designed specifically for distance learning and will help students develop advanced skills in knowledge acquisition, I.T, clinical photography and communication. Students will:
- Develop advanced skills in critically appraising peer reviewed dental literature providing them with a sound foundation for evidence-based clinical practice.
- Develop advanced skills in patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning to form a solid foundation for predictable, high quality restorative care.
- Students will carry out a programme of structured practical exercises relating to dental, periodontal and endodontic anatomy to inform restorative procedures (simulation & clinical) in subsequent modules.
Some content will also be delivered at two face-to-face residential courses and will provide teaching and/or practical simulation experience in the following subject areas:
- Treatment planning
