Professional Presentations in Clinical Dentistry
Senior Electives

Course Description
This course will primarily focus on preparing students to incorporate professional presentations on their clinical activities. Such skills can and should be transferred later on to their dental practices. In order to attain this goal, this course will be divided into three main topics: dental photography, Microsoft Office PowerPoint and case presentation. An overview of the history of dental photography, the importance and use of dental images, equipment and technique for intra-oral and extra-oral photography and recommended guidelines for clinical photography will be discussed. The fundamentals needed to create and modify presentations using Microsoft Office PowerPoint and case presentation guidelines will also be covered. Upon completion of this course, students will learn the principles of dental photography and its application across various dental disciplines; how to create effective PowerPoint presentations and deliver outstanding case presentations, and how to communicate effectively with their patients and other health care providers.
