RESD 110 - Operative Dentistry Lecture I

Cr Hrs: 1.5
An introduction course in Restorative Dentistry (Operative Dentistry) that provides initial instruction for student doctors to perform simulated clinical procedures in a preclinical laboratory setting as well as teaching motor and cognitive skills.  Additionally, dental terminology, ergonomics, and introduction to basic principles/techniques and materials will be emphasized. Lectures include classification and nomenclature of cavities; cavity preparation; instruments and instrumentation; histological structure of the teeth in relation to cavity preparation and selection of restorative materials. The manipulation of amalgam, cement bases, cavity liners, pulpal protection, pin retained amalgams and rubber dam application is introduced in this course. This course also demonstrates how relationships are affected by such factors as intra- and inter-personal concerns, cultural bias, and the social skills of the dentists, patients and auxiliaries. It assists dental students in their responsiveness to the needs of others and provides a cohesive framework within which students can interpret, understand and respond to patient behaviors.
