Master Dentistry - Restorative Dentistry, Paedi...
This text manages to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of condensing the three large specialties of restorative dentistry, paediatric dentistry and orthodontics into a single compact tome. It achieves this feat by covering the basic undergraduate curriculum without labouring on contentious issues or excessively fine detail. The book has been designed in such a way that once you are roughly familiar with the text you can easily reference back to chapters and topics, each of which sets out key learning objectives at the beginning that helps to keep your revision efficient and relevant to your learning needs. Each of the 12 chapters cover the essential topics of describing health, clinical assessment, pathology and clinical techniques for treatment, the text is complemented by quality diagrams, pictures and excellent tables.
Master Dentistry - Restorative Dentistry, Paedi...
Now in its fourth edition, this popular text provides a comprehensive overview of core elements of restorative adult and paediatric dentistry that students will need in order to pass their final exams.
Edited by Professor Giles McCracken, the book provides key details and an overall broad summary of the multiple facets of restorative dentistry, pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. It includes conscious sedation, anxiety management and how law, ethics and professionalism interface with the delivery of dentistry.
The book has been fully updated to include developments in restorative dentistry, the latest materials and new technology, and is ideal for undergraduate students, vocational trainees and those preparing for post-graduate examinations.
The restorative chapters cover periodontology, endodontics, conservative dentistry and prosthodontics. The first two provide good detail of their chosen area and include everything that you would expect. It is nice to see both child and adult patients discussed when considering gingivitis and periodontal disease. The endodontic section moves from patient assessment to canal obturation and also includes re-root treatment and surgical endodontics. Coverage of conservative dentistry in 25 pages is difficult especially when material usage is also discussed. Intracoronal restorative options are considered only briefly with priority given to adhesive techniques and extracoronal restorations. The prosthetics chapter sensibly confines itself to the clinical stages of complete and partial dentures, referring the reader to other texts for material science and laboratory stages.
Paediatric dentistry is in two chapters that discuss behaviour management, prevention, restorative care for children, trauma as well as anomalies and medical problems. Orthodontics has three chapters covering development, assessment and treatment planning; management of occlusal problems and appliances and tooth movement.
This popular book is now in its fourth edition and continues to provide a comprehensive overview of core elements of restorative adult and paediatric dentistry. It includes conscious sedation, anxiety management and how law, ethics and professionalism interface with the delivery of dentistry.
Clinical and didactic instruction covers a wide range of dental disciplines, emphasizing comprehensive care, practice management and care for dentally complex patients. The program is considered a group practice where, in addition to continuing education, residents are expected to meet modest production goals to help them transition to the private practice. The resident may pursue special interests in dentistry, such as specific clinical disciplines and additional research during the year.
In 2012, the School of Dentistry moved into a new, 300,000 square-foot building at 7500 Cambridge St. The six-floor facility has state-of-the-art technology and spacious design to accommodate programs in dentistry, dental hygiene, endodontics, dental informatics, oral and maxillofacial pathology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, prosthodontics, and two general practice residencies (AEGD and GPR).
All TMC member institutions are not-for-profit and are dedicated to the highest standards of patient and preventive care, research, education, and local, national, and international community well-being. These institutions include several renowned hospitals and specialty institutions, medical schools, nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and virtually all health-related careers. It is where one of the first, and still the largest, air emergency service was created; a very successful inter-institutional transplant program was developed; and more heart surgeries are performed than anywhere else in the world.
The Advanced Education in Endodontics Program offers an opportunity to earn both a certificate in endodontics and a master of science in dentistry (MSD) degree following 26 months of full-time academic endeavor. The degree program will be accepting up to five students each year. The program is designed to prepare participants for the American Board of Endodontics specialty examination. Every resident will have his/her desk and computer in addition to an operatory with a video-equipped microscope, digital radiography, and all equipment available for modern endodontics.
The General Practice Residency (GPR) Program is a one-year experience in hospital dentistry based in the university's affiliate hospital, Memorial Hermann. Each resident spends approximately nine months at the University Dental Center in the UT Professional Building, 6410 Fannin St., in Houston. This state-of-the-art facility supports all clinical and didactic activities of the GPR Program. Clinical and didactic instructions cover a full range of disciplines, including comprehensive care to the medically comprised and special needs patients, inpatient care, history and physicals, conscious sedation, general anesthesia, diagnosis and treatment planning, restorative dentistry, (fixed and removal prosthodontics, including implant restoration) and medical management. The program also requires rotations scheduled over a three-month period in the following: anesthesiology and pain control, otolaryngology and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry Program is a two-year program leading to a certificate, with an optional master of science in dentistry degree. The program currently accepts eight students per year. The GRE is not required for admission.
Clinical training predominately takes place in our postgraduate pediatric dentistry clinic along with supportive faculty, administrative staff and assistants. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, residents receive a certificate in pediatric dentistry, with an option of completing the Master of Science in Dentistry degree within the two-year period. An MSD is strongly encouraged.
The Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics is a three-year degree program that awards a certificate in Prosthodontics and a Master of Science degree.The goals of the program are to provide a foundation of knowledge and diverse experiences in all aspects of prosthetic dentistry. The program prepares residents for a career in clinical practice, teaching, and/or research. Residents, on completion of the program, will be proficient in prosthodontics, restorative aspects of implant dentistry, occlusion, and dental materials.
The course provides the opportunity to develop skills and acquire knowledge in advanced restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. The Graduate Certificate (Advanced Restorative) and Graduate Diploma (Advanced Restorative) are embedded within the Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (Prosthodontics) and provide the students the opportunity to complete selected units of study. 041b061a72
