ELEC 529 - Advanced Clinical Orthodontics
Cr Hrs: 1
This elective course will be primarily clinical in nature. It is designed to provide select dental students with an advanced knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems and a hands-on experience in treating clinical cases that require limited orthodontic intervention. Typical cases will include (1) minor dental crowding or spacing with a harmonious soft tissue profile and balanced occlusion and (2) cases that require limited orthodontic intervention in preparation for additional dental treatment such as creating space for a dental implant. The primary objective of this course will be to teach students how to take good quality orthodontic records, analyze the collected record, diagnose orthodontic problems, develop and present a treatment plan that addresses the patient concerns. Additionally, students are expected to start treatment and place orthodontic brackets on some limited orthodontic patients after the approval of the course instructor and under his direct supervision.
May be repeated up to 3 credit hours.
