DENT 4181 - Interdisciplinary Management of Dental Trauma

[19 Credits]
This course is intended to be an introduction to dental trauma management across the specialties. Students will participate in case based learning discussion sessions and lectures at the beginning of the course to introduce them to principles of management of traumatic injuries. Following this didactic portion, the students will shadow pediatric dentistry residents on call for one week and oral surgery residents. Students are required to attend the OMFS conference on the week proceeding and following their shadowing rotation. Students will be encouraged to attend follow-up endodontic appointments when possible. Students will generate a brief emergency summary with no identifying patient information to circulate to classmates and faculty following observed trauma cases on call. The course will end with a final group session to reflect on the experiences observed.
