DHY 4205 - ADVANCED CLINIC

[4 Credits]
A continuation of clinical treatment from Intermediate Clinic with the additional application of duties including nutritional counseling, periodontal patient re-evaluation, pit & fissure sealants, competency in local anesthesia administration, and nitrous oxide administration experiences. Students are assigned to selected departments within the school, as well as extramural clinics for observation and participation. The end goal of Advance Clinic is competency in all facets of the dental hygiene professions allowed by law (in the State of Louisiana) requiring refinement of clinical techniques in conjunction with increased efficiency and effective self-evaluation/assessment and communication skills. The course requires an extension of the theoretical beliefs regarding patient assessment and patient care to the clinic experience.
