[16 Credits]
The focus of this course is to explore and discuss emerging topics within dental research. The class will be taught by both basic science and clinical faculty as topics and expertise will involve Oral and Craniofacial Biology, Comprehensive Dentistry and Biomaterials, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Endodontics and Oral Medicine. Each lecture period will consist of students presenting a primary research article over a topic of his or her choice. The student will be expected to give relevant background necessary to the paper, and present the article in a thorough, scholarly manner to both students, clinical and research faculty ( who will be asked to participate based on faculty expertise to the topic at hand). The topic will be discussed and critiqued throughout this process as a means to dissect the paper’s relevance, strength and weaknesses and applicability to dentistry.
