Syllabus:

This stream has a patient care focus and builds on the knowledge acquired in first year. The aim is to develop an understanding of the changes that occur to the oral cavity when an imbalance develops in the oral ecosystem. The emphasis will be to maintain a healthy balance through prevention and minimal restoration where necessary. By working through a series of interactive learning activities, students will develop and integrate knowledge relating to evidence-based patient care including clinical skills and professional behaviours. These integrated learning activities will be supported by class meetings, laboratory, tutorial and clinical sessions. Learning will also be supported by independent study and discussion of findings in class. Students will work in a collaborative environment to learn to critically evaluate themselves, and plan and implement strategies for improvement. The stream emphasises the scientific basis of dentistry by integrating knowledge of the structure and function of the body, especially of the head and neck region, and also aspects of microbiology, immunology and pathology, with an emphasis on developing the skills to examine, assess risk and systematically manage healthy patients with minor oral conditions. There is a strong emphasis on the acquisition of manual dexterity skills relating to operative dentistry while building on knowledge relating to a preventive approach to oral health. Students will further their experience in behavioural science by examining and managing patients.
