Catalog Description:
Untitled document
Application of the dental hygiene process of care guided by the human needs conceptual model to promote oral health and wellness. The course includes laboratory and clinical experiences in client assessments, problem identification (dental hygiene diagnosis), dental hygiene care planning, case presentation and implementation of dental hygiene care (preventive and therapeutic procedures, oral health education). Evaluation of dental hygiene care/oral health goals attainment is also emphasized as an essential component of the dental hygiene process.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of DH 71A; AND Concurrent Enrollment in DH 72 and DH 75 and DH 74 and DH 76; AND Course Completion or Current Enrollment in DE 55B

COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Provide treatment that includes preventive and therapeutic procedures to promote and maintain oral health and assist the patient in achieving oral health goals.
2.  Systematically collect, analyze, and accurately record baseline data on general, oral, and psycho-social health status using methods consistent with medico-legal principles.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:
Theory Objectives
1. Describe the types of intrinsic and extrinsic dental stains and their associated causes.
2. Differentiate between stains associated with coronal polish and the correlation between tooth formation and the staining process.
3. Differentiate between the abrasive agents, examining the degree of hardness and the intended surface for which they are to be used and how the shape and size of the abrasive material affects the tooth structure
being polished.
4. Compare and contrast polishing versus selective polish and discuss the implications of each.
5. Describe the design features and blade characteristic that distinguish area-specific from universal curettes and the advantages and limitations of these design characteristics.
6. Differentiate between scaling, root planning and periodontal debridement and what determines the end point of each.
7. Identify the components of evidence-based decision making and the correlation with patient centered care.
8. List and describe the American Academy of Periodontology categories of periodontal disease, gingivitis and health.
9. Describe oral characteristics associated with periodontal health, gingivitis and periodontitis and the etiologic and risk factors associated with each disease.
10. In each of the assessment documents determine periodontal risk factors and correlate these factors to the patient's periodontal diagnosis and plan for treatment.
11. Discuss the factors influencing the dental hygiene periodontal diagnosis and its relationship to the treatment plan and outcome assessment.
12. Define and calculate, in case studies, clinical attachment loss and width of attached gingiva and their relationship to periodontitis.
13. Define the phases of dental treatment included in the comprehensive treatment plan including the considerations for sequencing dental hygiene treatment with periodontal diseases.
14. Define informed consent and its importance to patient care.
15. Define and list the elements of nonsurgical periodontal therapy
16. Describe a typical plan for nonsurgical periodontal therapy for a patient with plaque-induced gingivitis, early and moderate periodontitis.
 
Clinical Objectives
1. Demonstrate the armamentarium needed for polishing and the mechanisms for attachment and different types of polishing cups.
2. Perform coronal polishing technique with appropriate material selection and precautions for polishing natural tooth surfaces, restorations.
3. Demonstrate technique, procedures and state rationale and precautions for professional application of topical fluoride.
4. Demonstrate the correct principles of insertion, adaptation, angulation, and lateral pressure with each of the area-specific curettes.
5. Utilizing the assessment documents, determine the dental hygiene periodontal diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
6. Demonstrate individualized preventive oral hygiene care instructions designed to motivate the patient toward routine and effective home care
skills and habit cessation essential for the prevention and control of oral diseases.
7. Analyze all the data gathered during the assessment phase of the dental hygiene process to identify the patient's human needs related to dental
hygiene care in order to plan treatment with the goal of delivering comprehensive dental hygiene care.
8. Perform nonsurgical periodontal therapy for a patient with plaque-induced gingivitis and early periodontitis.
9. Assess the oral conditions of hard and soft tissues, detect and remove supragingival and subgingival calculus, stain and plaque by applying principles of instrumentation for the proper use of mouth mirrors, periodontal probe, explorers, universal and area-specific curettes, sickle scalers and polishing instruments on dental hygiene patients.
10. Continue to refine the principles of instrument sharpening for proper sharpening of universal curettes and scalers and apply the principles of sharpening to Gracey curettes.
11. Analyze evaluation outcome and offer recommendations to patients regarding preventive and therapeutic measures as well as professional dental hygiene care interval.
12. Demonstrate professionalism through personal appearance, attitude, and conduct appropriate for the learning environment, as well as for rendering patient care.
