1. General Information
The Implant Dentistry Lecture Series takes place on Tuesday mornings for fifty minutes from May 3 - August 2. Students are divided into 10 small groups and rotate throughout this course. The course meets in the Preclinical Laboratory.
1.1. Course Requirements
Attendance at all lectures is necessary and important for you. Examination questions are taken from lecture and slide material, the syllabus, and the implant dentistry manual. Videotapes shown during lectures and handouts given out in lectures will be test material.
The grade for the Implant Dentistry course will be divided as follows:
|10%||Complete Denture Practical Exam I and II|
Examinations will have a maximum of 50 multiple-choice questions.
There will be one make-up examination each for each examination. These may be essay/fill-ins or multiple-choice questions.
1.2. Implant Hands-On Laboratory
There will be one hands-on laboratory session that all members of the class must attend. There are two three-hour sessions in the Preclinical Laboratory. One-half of the class will be assigned to each session for each session.
1.3. Seminar - Implant Overdentures
The group seminar (16-17 students/group) is included into this Implant Dentistry Course starting on May 17 and will be ended on July 12 with the seminar "Implant Retained Overdentures".
Students MUST attend the scheduled Seminar (see student schedule). "Implant Overdentures" given in the first ten weeks on Tuesday mornings by Dr. Chaimattayompol. This is an additional laboratory or "hands-on" portion of this course. It covers implant overdentures (removable implant prostheses).
There will be examination questions from the seminar in the Final Examination.
1.4. Reading/Viewing Assignments
Suggested textbook: "Boucher's Prosthodontic Treatment for Edentulous Patients," Editors Zarb, Bolender, Carlsson, Eleventh Edition, Mosby 1997, Chapters 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.
"Contemporary Implant Dentistry", Editors Misch CE, 3rd edition, Mosby 2005, Chapter 12, 13*, 15.
In this syllabus, you will also see a list of more suggested textbooks and a list of DVD/CD ROMs.
NOTE: HANDOUTS/CD ROM MUST BE PICKED UP DURING CLASS TIME. EXTRAS MAY BE AVAILABLE AFTER CLASS, FROM YOUR CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, WITHIN ONLY A FEW WEEKS OF THE START OF THE COURSE.
1.5. Implant Clinical Experience
Each student must do one implant clinical experience as a minimum procedural experience (see your MCP document). This can include:
- Diagnosis and treatment planning (Implant Step Sheet)
- Implant Crown
- Implant Fixed Partial Denture
- Implant Overdenture
The Implant Dentistry Step Sheet must be used for all of these procedures. It is turned in to the Department of Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry.
1.6. Office Hours
The Instructor's teaching schedule can be verified in front of his/her office room.
Any of your suggestions during the course will be met with enthusiasm and appreciation. Feel free to use e-mail. Thank you.
