Third year dental students interact with members of the dental team and deliver care under circumstances which are similar to a large group practice. Dental students are expected to demonstrate a satisfactory level of proficiency in the assigned CPMG and during block rotation assignments. Each CPMG meets once weekly for general dental rounds where students present cases or topics and are asked to defend treatment-planning decisions with reference to the literature. Emphasis is placed on relatively simple restorations within the student's capabilities. Students are expected to perform clinically acceptable procedures on manikins in unguided situations as an assessment of competency. S/U grade assessment.
