This unit provides students with the necessary skills to expand their treatment planning skills for patients in a general dental practice situation, using non-invasive primary and secondary preventive strategies and to undertake the management of patients presenting in pain. Students will build on their initial clinical experience by expanding the complexity of cavities and range of materials used in their treatment of patients. The foundations of Endodontics will be deepened and broadened to include advanced concepts. The program of Dental Trauma will teach students the guidelines and skills needed for the general management of acute traumatic dental injuries. The area of trauma represents a significant crossover between the disciplines of Endodontics, Paediatric Dentistry and Oral Surgery. Complementary to the clinical work, the Professional practice program covers those domains of dentistry practice that foster the development of oral health professionals who are competent, caring and committed to the healing of their patients. This discipline will explore the topics of social justice, clinical ethics and professional integrity as well as examining behavioural science learning topics including effective communication and management skills.

This unit of study will build on the foundations of semester one - This unit provides students with the necessary skills to expand their treatment planning skills for patients in a general dental practice situation, using non-invasive primary and secondary preventive strategies and to undertake the management of patients presenting in pain. Students will build on their initial clinical experience by expanding the complexity of cavities and range of materials used in their treatment of patients. The foundations of Endodontics will be deepened and broadened to include advanced concepts. The program of Dental Trauma will teach students the guidelines and skills needed for the general management of acute traumatic dental injuries. The area of trauma represents a significant crossover between the disciplines of Endodontics, Paediatric Dentistry and Oral Surgery. Complementary to the clinical work, the Professional practice program covers those domains of dentistry practice that foster the development of oral health professionals who are competent, caring and committed to the healing of their patients. This discipline will explore the topics of social justice, clinical ethics and professional integrity as well as examining behavioural science learning topics including effective communication and management skills.
Students may be required to attend classes at multiple locations.

In this elective leadership module, students will examine different theories of leadership with class activities delivered by guest lecturers, discussions, group work, and projects. As a group-based project, students will conduct academic/administrator interviews with several dental leaders and leaders in higher education to gain an appreciation of the different levels of career paths and the challenges associated with fulfilling a leadership role. These interviews may also serve as a vehicle to identify role models.
