DENT 3005AHO - Dental Science and Practice III Part 1

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 1 - 2019

Dental Science and Practice III provides students with the opportunity to develop as dental professionals who, upon successful completion of the course, will be able to manage patients with a wide range of common dental problems. The focus of the course is to emphasise an holistic, preventively-based approach to oral health care, with a minimally invasive approach if restorative treatment is required. Students will be expected to apply and integrate knowledge and understanding of relevant sciences in managing their patients and demonstrate high levels of professionalism, including an ability to effectively self-assess and a desire to continue to learn and grow as a member of the dental profession.

    Specific Course Requirements
    There are numerous Clinical Placement requirements that are mandated. Students are required to be up to date with all clinical placement requirements.
    Refer to information at following location: https://health.adelaide.edu.au/study-with-us/student-support/clinical-placements

    Plastic teeth requirements - refer to 3rd year BDS handbook on MyUni.

    Other specific information will be provided in the 3rd year BDS handbook on MyUni.

    Small Group Discovery Experience
    Student learning from the SGDE activities involves the following processes as part of participating in the ILAs:
    • learning the systematic scientific approach to patient investigation, ie, consistent with students current and future professional practice;
    • identifying, critiquing and referencing relevant evidence derived  from the literature and interactions with School researchers;
    • researching answers to questions they identify using this evidence  related to clinical, population health, behavioural and biodental
    sciences. As a result of their research, students develop,  structure and apply their knowledge so they can understand their
    patient’s situation and recommend appropriate care.
  • Assessment

    The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:

    1. Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
    2. Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
    3. Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
    4. Assessment must maintain academic standards.

    Assessment Summary
    Assessment Task Assessment Type Weighting Learning Outcome(s) being addressed
    1.5 hour PCPC examination Paper Summative 1-5
    Clinical performance and simulated clinic performance Summative 40% 1-5
    2 hour written examination - Paper 1 Summative 30% 2, 4
    2 hour written examination - Paper 2 Summative 30% 2, 4
    Assessment Related Requirements
    Attendance at all classes eg clinic, sim clinic, ILA sessions, tutorials/workshops student learner activities, subrosters (ie, radiography) are compulsory.

    All students in the BDS program are required to notify the School of absences. Students are reminded that the BDS programme is a professional degree, requiring the highest standards of professional behavior. Notification of any absence is also good professional conduct. International students need to be compliant and attend classes as a requirement of the visa obligations and responsibilities under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000.

    If you are unable to attend your scheduled session the following 3-step protocol must be followed:

    1. Contact the clinic asap to inform them of your absence.

    2. Email the BDS Yr level/clinic/sim clinic coordinator and inform them of your absence ASAP

    3. Complete and lodge a “Clinic Non-Attendance” form. This step is mandatory. This form is located in SONIA.

    Further information is on MyUni.
    Assessment Detail
    Feedback (Formative Assessment)
    A range of formative assessment activities will be provided during each semester. These have been designed to help you learn key concepts in DSP III as well as give you feedback on your progress and to gain experience in the question formats used in DSP III, These activities will be in the form of questions in class meetings, learning laboratories, tutorials and online questions accessible via MyUni.

    Summative Assessment
    Summary of summative assessment tasks :

    1: PCPC program attendance and participation and completion of PCPC workbook

    2: Clinical and simulated clinic performance including  both Fixed Prosthodontics and Endodontics exercises/Endo workbook completion and clinic portfolio

    3: Other non-graded assessment tasks: 1 x Test of Understanding (Periodontics); Radiography log book (submit to Lucy Hatch during last week of Semester);2 x Tests of Understanding (Orthodontics, Fixed Prosthodontics); attendance & participation in ILA sessions; attendance & participationBiology of Occlusion learning labs; attendance & participation in Volunteer patient tutorials participation

    4. Written examinations
    End of PCPC program - 1 x 1.5 hour written examination

    End of Semester 1 - 2 x 2 hour written examinations

    End of Semester 2 - 2 x 2.5 hour written examinations (Whole Year)

    1 x 2 hour Progressive Integrated Assessment (PIA)

    Further details refer to 3rd y Handbook on MyUni
    Submission
    Details on submission processes/requirements will be provided in the documentation for any work that is to be submitted. These will be posted on MyUni.
    Course Grading

    Grades for your performance in this course will be awarded in accordance with the following scheme:

    NOG (No Grade Associated)
    Grade Description
    CN Continuing

    Further details of the grades/results can be obtained from Examinations.

    Grade Descriptors are available which provide a general guide to the standard of work that is expected at each grade level. More information at Assessment for Coursework Programs.

    Final results for this course will be made available through Access Adelaide.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

    The School follows the University’s SELT policy regarding the use of SELTs to evaluate its programmes, courses and teachers.   The results are reviewed with by Year and Course Coordinators and actions taken as appropriate.  A summary of changes that have been made are circulated to staff and students after the review process.

    The year co-ordinators will meet with students on a regular basis to discuss the delivery of the course, content, clinical and other matters.

    Student representative across the BDS program also meet periodically with the Head of School.
  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
