RDS 110

This course is designed to provide the student with the basic elements of tooth morphology as an essential pre-requisite for other dental courses. The course comprises lectures and clinical simulation sessions. Using wax, students restore the missing coronal surfaces of complete tooth models by a wax carving technique. This is designed to reinforce the theoretical knowledge gained in the lectures, as well as contribute towards the development of manual dexterity, a skill which is essential in the practice of dentistry. Identification of natural tooth specimens forms a significant part of the practical component of the course.
