Course Content

This clinical module is a continuation of module C1, but at a higher
level.
Firstly, this clinical module will deal with the intake of referred
patients at our policlinic, where the student is expected to perform in
an independent mode, and apply proper diagnosis, prognosis and advanced
treatment planning for patients with severe destructive periodontal
diseases. The student will be trained in communicating properly with the
referring dentist, and to write a detailed yet concise report to the
referring dentist in the form of a letter including presentations of a
main and an alternative treatment plan. Also the student will be trained
to communicate with the physicians of the patient when applicable and to
research and interpret the medical history and prescribed medications
and their interactions with the mucosal and periodontal tissues.

Furthermore, the student will perform in an independent mode non-
surgical periodontal treatment procedures and oral hygiene interventions
in patients with severe periodontitis.
The student is expected to present to the departmental staff members in
lunch meetings his-her cases, including proper background and relevant
medical information, and to present proposed treatment plans. Further,
advanced treatment planning, including periodontal surgery planning will
be taught.
This module also includes the clinical principles of periodontal
surgical procedures. In preclinical sessions and practice sessions the
student will be prepared to perform periodontal surgery procedures on
his/her patient. In these preparatory sessions and preclinical training,
practice of periodontal surgical procedures on pig-jaws are included. An
important aspect is familiarization with the set of surgical
instruments, as well as training in sterility and hygiene of the
surgical room.
