Course Goal The overall objective of this preclinical theoretical and laboratory based course is to prepare the dental student to construct a removable partial denture which will satisfy the biomechanical requirements of a partially edentulous clinical patient. Instruction includes PowerPoint lecture presentations and sequential laboratory exercises that develop essential clinical and laboratory skills required in the design and fabrication of interim and cast removable partial prostheses. Course Requirements To successfully complete DENT 344, students must fulfil the following requirements: Must have a valid registration to the course Attend 90% of all lecture and lab sessions Complete reading assignments, quizzes, tests and lab assessments to gain a total mark towards a minimum grade of 50% Course References 1 Title Authors Publisher Year / Edition Required Text Book Stewart's Clinical Removable Partial Prosthodontics Rodney D.

Course objectives 1. The theoretical course provides the platform of basic knowledge of dental procedures and stepwise methodologies leading to the construction of a successful denture 2. Relevance and evidence of each methodology is introduced along with alternative current practices. 3. The lab provides hands-on training to develop basic skills of laboratory procedures which are incorporated in the denture design. 4. The hands-on experience produces various outcomes related to students limited abilities. These faulty procedures are used as an education tool to construct critical assessment skills and relate them to clinical complaints and patient managements. 5. Students are introduced to the e-Learning course which follows the progress of student and allows for a customised learning path based on students abilities. 6. e-Learning based quizzes and assignments will help introduce students to the clinical situations by simulations designed to be used as self learning material.

Additional Notes Professions tend to be autonomous and self-sufficient which means having a high degree of control of own affairs while having freedom to exercise professional judgment/ As it is a trait, which can be easily enhanced, it is thus subject to self-interest and a continuous process of critical evaluation of ethics and procedure/ As the students have been part of the university for some considerable time, they would be familiar with general principles about its beliefs on matters such as quality studentship within this environment/ We thus expect our students to develop their professionalism even further together with a high Morality/ Dentistry is a profession based on such Ethical codes/ Gross violations of these formal codes are governed by University laws, which delineate the procedures to determine whether a violation of the code of ethics occurred and, if so, what remedies should be imposed/ This does not mean the list is complete/ We encourage students to abide with the more sensitive approach to this by allowing the practice of a high Morality (or proper behavior), which defines right and wrong by the society, philosophy, religion, and individual conscience/ Students and their instructors often make ethical choices reflexively/ But ethically sensitive situations, where time, emotions and marks are pressured, it becomes all too easy to be blind-sided by temptation/ The best antidote to ethical lapses is to commit in advance to a set of ethical principles - your personal ethical code that follows or grows to it/ Any difficulty or concern during the course should be passed directly to the course coordinator The working models should be marked with the students name and university number Student ID labels are confirmed by assigned lab supervisor The Lab work should be finished during the lab sessions, not allowed to finish your work at home Completed work is handed in the assigned area in the lab Marks are returned within one week of the assignment Undelivered work will not be marked All the instruments you need should be brought as soon as possible You should leave your worktop as clean as possible Each student should set at the designated area. Names will be mounted on each bench. Cooperation and professionalism in the lab time are encouraged to facilitate your progress in the course Applicable when an acceptable and valid excuse is presented at the appropriate time. N/A Unethical. JUST regulations will be applied The work should be your own, otherwise it will marked

zero It is mandatory for all lectures and laboratory sessions Each student will be assigned a seat Tardiness up to 15 minutes of the start of class/lab will be allowed. To receive course credit, a student should attend a minimum of 90% of the contact hours of the class; (one lecture, two three hour laboratory sessions) Absences from class are counted from the day the class meets officially for the first time not from when the student officially enters. If absent from lectures, then the course coordinator will refer to related guidelines set by the university Any student who is absent on a test day, will have to demonstrate an acceptable medical or social statement explaining the illness or personal crisis as instructed by their faculty Individual instructors may arrange for a make-up test only when a written request is made to and approved by the appropriate dean. Any student who feels that he/she may need accommodation for any type of disability is encouraged to contact the course coordinator who will be happy to help in any way Accommodations to the course plan can be tailored to the needs of specific individuals after consultations with the dean. Multiple choice questions will be computer based Written questions may include short essay, definition, enumeration and matching questions Answers will be discussed in the class All students are highly encouraged to actively participate in the class and laboratory sessions Quizzes and brain storming will be an essential part of the course. The course coordinator is always available to talk with the student when problems arise If you have any problems that require the attention of an instructor, do not wait until the problem is insurmountable If a student needs to talk with the course coordinator outside office hours, an appointment can be made Information contained in this course outline is correct at the time of publication Content of the courses is revised on an ongoing basis to ensure relevance to changing educational, employment needs The course coordinator reserves the right to add or delete material from courses and will endeavor to provide notice of changes to students as soon as possible The timetable may also be revised accommodating to holidays and unexpected holidays
