  • 1. COURSE OUTLINE Academic Organisation: School of Dentistry and Oral Health Faculty: Griffith Health Credit point value: 15 Student Contribution Band: Band 3 Course level: Undergraduate Campus/Location/Learning Mode: Gold Coast / On Campus / In Person Convenor/s: Dr Jane Manakil (Gold Coast) Enrolment Restrictions: Restricted: Course must be listed in Program This document was last updated: 5 June 2007 BRIEF COURSE DESCRIPTION Comprehensive Oral Health Care 1 involves the development and application of skills and knowledge acquired in Principles of Dental Care. Additional skills will be gained in oral diagnosis including examination and charting procedures, radiographic techniques and restorative procedures. Students will also apply clinical skills developed in a simulated situation to care of real patients, including dental hygiene and basic restorative procedures. Students will increase their knowledge of oral diagnosis, oral diseases and their prevention, dental materials, communication, radiology and basic operative dental procedures. Pre-requisites and Co-requisites For students who commence in 2007 Pre-requisite: 2007DOH For students who commenced in 2006 Pre-requisites: 2007DOH, 2013MSC Co-requisites: 2006DOH, 2008DOH
  • 2. SECTION A – TEACHING, LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT COURSE AIMS The purpose of Comprehensive Oral Health Care 1 Care is for students to develop a critical understanding of the foundations of dental care and provide students with fundamental knowledge of communication, patient history taking, radiology, oral diagnosis, oral disease prevention, cariology, periodontology, basic dental procedures including scaling, fissure sealants, and simple restorations, which includes understanding of appropriate dental materials, and team work. This course consists of two components: 1. Clinical Practice includes preventative care, oral diagnosis, dental hygiene, communication, team work and computer application “SOE production”. 2. Radiography sessions will be conducted with the objective to develop the basic knowledge in different intra-oral radiographic techniques and as an adjunct to clinical diagnosis.

Perform basic dental procedures such as fissure sealants, supragingival scaling, simple dental impressions and Simple restorations in a simulation situation 9. Monitor and maintain the clinical environment to ensure optimal cross infection control and demonstrate a sound knowledge of protocol for contamination incidents and needle stick injuries 10. Demonstrate sound teamwork, ethics, and confidentiality and communication principles in relation to other members of the dental team 11. Apply and have knowledge of common dental materials.

Lecture attendance is strongly recommended. Students that are absent from more than one laboratory or clinic session without an acceptable reason may not satisfy the course requirements, subject to assessment board. A medical certificate, attached to an ‘application for clinic or laboratory make-up form’ found at (current students, policies and procedures), should be presented to your tutor as soon as possible after the missed session. Any other extenuating circumstances and explanations must be documented and forwarded with the ‘application for clinic or laboratory make-up form’ to your tutor as soon as possible. Swapping between classes is not permitted, in order to prevent overcrowding and to ensure adequate resources are available in the laboratories. Students are advised that they are required to comply with the School of Dentistry and Oral Health Dress Code for all clinical and laboratory sessions. Students not complying with the code will not be permitted to attend the session. Of particular importance is the wearing of appropriate protective apparel in the clinic and laboratory. Mobile phones must be switched off at all times during the session.

Preventive dentistry 25% All Week 15-16 written exam (2 hours) Assessment Details The two components of the course Radiography and Clinical Practice have to be passed separately to pass the course. Radiography: • Radiography practical (15% of Final Mark): Will be conducted during Week 15-16. Students are required to pass intraoral radiography techniques and interpretations. • End of Course Written Exam (15% of Final Mark): This exam will be conducted during Week 15-16 and includes short and long answer questions and covers all material presented in rqdiography lectures and practicals. Both the radiography practical and written exam needs to be passed separately with a minimum mark of 50%. This is an essential component of receiving the radiographic licence as competent to take intra-oral radiographs in the clinics. The Faculty Assessment Board, at its discretion, may grant a supplementary examination where a percentage mark between 45-49% has been obtained for this component. Clinical Practice: • Log book and practical examination (25% of Final Mark): Log book assessment will be part of the lab session from week 1- 13. The practical exanimation will involve completion of two Class II cavity preparations and one restoration in a set time period under 4
  • 6. examination conditions. Students will be given a mark out of 25% combined (10% log book & 15% practical examination). Students are required to critically appraise their own performance and reflect on their progress, not only in terms of developing core knowledge and clinical skills, but also on personal and professional development. Reflection of the development of team work, ethical standards communication skills, and problem based learning skills is encouraged. This mark will be given by consensus of the attending tutors. Students not gaining a passing grade or above in this assessment will be required to complete an additional practical examination in the latter part of the semester. • OSCE clinical assessment (10% of Final Mark): The OSCE exam will cover clinical material. Components of the OSCE will also assess students verbal. Students will be expected to demonstrate sound integration of knowledge and skills gained in different disciplines of clinical dentistry and in clinical sciences to appraise, diagnose and propose management solutions to different clinical and non-clinical problems • Preventive dentistry written exam (25% of Final Mark): Will cover ALL lecture from the preventive dentistry module. • Computer skills assessment (10% of Final Mark): This assessment will test you computer skills related to the SoE patient management software Please note that is required that students to gain a passing grade or above in all assessment items to successfully complete this subject. This is in accordance with the School of Dentistry and Oral Health Assessment Policy found online at - click current students, policies and procedures. Please note that external examiners and moderators will participate in the assessment process for this subject. Further information regarding assessment tasks will be available on Learning@Griffith. Return of Assessment Items Feedback on oral presentations will only be given once all students have presented. Examination scripts will be available for review at a time convenient to the course convenor and only under the convenor’s supervision. Students Experiencing Difficulty If students are experiencing any difficulty with the material, or any related aspects of this course then they are strongly encouraged to discuss the situation with the course convenor.
