In this subject, students will be introduced to the health, legal and professional environment in which dentistry is practised. Novice level aspects of pre-clinical dentistry through theory, laboratory exercises and pre-clinical simulation will be introduced. This training will commence with concepts around work, health and safety and infection control according to latest guidelines and legal requirements. Students are also introduced to the social and biomedical impacts on health and oral health. Simple concepts in caries pathophysiology and disease risk assessment will be introduced. Instruction in basic dental laboratory skills and techniques will also be an integral part of this unit along with pre-clinical simulation training, which will introduce students to the ongoing study and manipulation of dental materials and restorative cavity preparation techniques. Early knowledge in dental radiation science and radiographic technique will be provided. This novice level training will also assess manual dexterity and spatial sense.
