[1-7 Credits]
Students matriculating in the curriculum gain experience with diagnosing malocclusions, establishing treatment objectives, and formulating treatment plans for individual cases presented in the seminar on a daily basis. The students present the case’s chief complaint, medical and dental histories, clinical exam findings, radiographic exam findings, cephalometric analyses, and diagnostic casts. Using an open format seminar the instructors draw on their own clinical experience to question the students about various aspects of the case being presented. This format offers a unique interaction and discussion between the students and faculty members present for the day. It is expected that with increased exposure to numerous methods of diagnosis, treatment planning, and biomechanical therapy, the students upon graduation have the skills necessary to successfully transition into an orthodontic practice.
