Course Credit

The goal of this course is to provide students an opportunity to observe and participate in a community dental practice. Students will integrate their knowledge and skills from all previous theory and clinical courses to their assigned placement site. Using a collaborative approach, including patients and other health care professionals, students will further develop dental assisting skills related to reprocessing and decontamination procedures as outlined by IPAC (Infection Prevention and Control) and PHO (Public Health Ontario), basic tray set-ups, as well as increase their knowledge of four handed dentistry procedures and assisting skills. In addition, students will observe a specialty dental practice followed by a reflective report.
