DENT 4108 - ADVANCED TREATMENT PLANNING SEMINAR

[40 Credits]
The purpose of this course is to expand student thinking in the arena of treatment planning; to change his/her focus from a “requirement mindset,” what L.D. Pankey describes as a “tooth dentist,” to a mindset that takes into consideration the overall oral health and perceived needs/desires of the patient, what Pankey describes as a “whole person” dentist. The course explores important questions/issues related to “advanced” clinical areas of dentistry such as esthetics, implants, use of attachments, occlusal rehabilitation, and the treatment of patients with compromised general health. The last part of the course will be solely devoted to the presentation/discussion of complex cases. (Department of Comprehensive Dentistry)
