The Removable Prosthodontics Certificate is included in the Dental Technology Certificate of Achievement Program. The curriculum is designed to provide students with the learning experiences pertaining to removable prosthodontics technology, such as removable partial dentures and complete dentures. The courses are sequential, delivered in 4 semesters and one intersession providing the students with cumulative learning experiences which include: concepts of dental morphology, function, science of materials and their application in the design and fabrication of the removable dental prosthesis. Students will evaluate design and construct dental prosthesis by using analogue and digital tools and technologies.
Program Student Learning Outcomes:
1. Understand, interpret and follow the instructions provided by the dentist.
2. Incorporate the dental anatomy,morphology, Gnathological knowledge and science of dental materials into their constructions.
3. Design and construct basic orthodontic restorations, partial and full removable dental prosthesis.
Number of courses offered annually:
Removable Prosthodontics: First year 7, second year 4
Enrollment: Potential enrollment in the first year is 156 students
Second year: Potential enrollment: 72 students
Projected Annual Completers: 18 Students
Using state-of-the-art equipment, experienced faculty, and hands-on instruction, our program prepares students for a successful career in the restorative prosthetic dental technology. Thus, students receive a comprehensive learning experience which include basic and advanced techniques, and technologies applied in the fabrication of dental prosthesis. The Dental Prosthetic Technology curriculum is designed to ready students to pass the Certified Dental Technology Exams and become a Certified Dental Technologist.
The goal of this certificate is to provide the educational platform for students to gain specific skills and knowledge in the specialty of Removable Prosthodontics. This specialty includes the digital and analog design and fabrication of complete dentures, removable partial dentures, orthodontic appliances and the removable segment of the dental implant restorations.
The Removable Prosthodontics Certificate consists of 3 fundamental courses, followed by 6 core courses, and 2 Directed Study courses.
