Integrated Clinical Dentistry C3 - SDDM5417

Year - 2020

Learning in Oral Pathology and Oral Medicine builds upon earlier material and will assist students to develop a critical understanding of the maxillofacial and oral diseases as well as systemic diseases with oral manifestations that may be encountered in the course of their professional career and be called upon to diagnose, prevent and treat. The course in Oral Surgery further prepares the student for surgical procedures beyond the level of skill acquired in earlier years, and exposes the student to the hospital setting and observing advanced surgical procedures. Study in conscious sedation develops deeper understanding of sedation techniques as well as of medical emergency and life support. The course content of Special Care Dentistry aims to develop the students' knowledge and skills to manage patients with special needs, including intellectual and physical disabilities, mental illnesses, neurodegenerative disorders and frail/elderly patients.

1 x written assessment, 1 x Viva Voce and continuous sessional assessment in Clinical sessions.
