Objectives: Untitled document
In order to achieve these learning outcomes, during the course students will:
Theory Objectives
1. Describe the process for creating a student portfolio and identify projects that would demonstrate competency
2. Compare and contrast the concepts of dental hygiene care for patients with various classifications of periodontal health and disease, including scaling and root planning, oral prophylaxis, periodontal debridement, host modulation therapy, and therapeutic endpoints
3. Define the process of formulating a treatment care plan and demonstrate treatment plan presentation
4. Explain the primary purpose in integrating caries management by risk assessment in to the oral healthcare practice
5. Discuss the functional components, design considerations, advanced fulcrum techniques, and customized details regarding the sequence of advanced hand-activated instrumentation
6. Define gingival curettage and explain the rational, indications, contraindications, and controversy surrounding the effectiveness of purposeful curettage
7. Compare and contrast delivery methods of subgingival antimicrobial agents
8. Describe the treatment modifications for patients with special needs; multi symptom disorder/disabilities and non-multi symptom disorder/disability
9. Discuss the dental hygiene process of care in the cross-cultural environment
 
Clinical Objectives
