SDM RS 524: Fixed Prosthodontics I
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to extracoronal full-coverage tooth restoration systems. The conceptual basis for both single-tooth crowns and multiple-tooth bridgework is presented.
SDM RS 525: Preclinical Fixed Prosthodontics
This simulated clinic course provides experience and skill development with single-tooth crowns and multiple-tooth bridgework.
SDM RS 526: Biomaterials II
An in-depth study of the physical and chemical properties of materials related to the practice of dentistry. It includes their uses, handling, and effects.
SDM RS 527: Occlusion
This course takes the student from normal dental anatomy and occlusion, through analysis of deviations from normal or natural dentition, to an approach to maintenance of healthy occlusal patterns in restorative dentistry and correction of occlusal patterns and disharmonies. To help emphasize critical concepts, laboratory simulations provide students the opportunity to practice clinical procedures related to occlusal diagnosis and treatment. Concepts from the course are integrated with courses in operative dentistry, prosthodontics, periodontology, and orthodontics.
