PDSC 824 - Biomechanics & Biomaterials

Cr Hrs: 1 (16-0)

This graduate course is designed to teach dental residents basic biomechanical and biomaterial concepts needed to critically assess and integrate dental materials related literature into their clinical specialties. Metals, polymers, and ceramics are ubiquitous throughout the various dental disciplines. Providing a high quality of oral healthcare requires basic understanding of the physical response of these materials. To stay informed and exploit contemporary and emerging insights, dental professionals must stay current with the biomaterials literature. This course will help students gain experience in the critical reading and evaluation of the biomaterials research literature.
