As previously advised, students must collect as many teeth as possible to be used in the practical part of this course. Extracted teeth must not be kept dry; but in diluted Sodium hypochlorite solution. This home bleaching agent is available in most supermarkets in a concentration of 6.5% and can be diluted by adding 3 volumes of water to 1 volume of bleach to obtain the concentration of 0.75%. 2. Students should keep an anterior, upper premolar and a molar tooth for the final practical exam. 3. You should familiarize yourself with more clinically simulated conditions 4. Perform endodontic treatment in correct posture 5. Effectively work with reflected images in the mouth mirror 6. University rules regarding attendance, both in lecture, lab and make up exams will be respected and strictly followed. 7. Practical sessions will take place in the Operative Dental Surgery (ODS) Lab. (D3 – L1) according to the following table: Section Day Time 1 Sunday 8:15 – 2: 15 2 Monday 8:15 – 2: 15 3 Tuesday 8:15 – 2: 15 4 Wednesday 8:15 – 2: 15 5 Thursday Professionalism Labwork Makeup Exams Drop Date 8:15 – 2: 15 Gross violations of the formal codes are governed by University laws, which delineate the procedures to determine whether a violation of the code of ethics occurred and, if so, what remedies should be imposed. We encourage students to abide with the more sensitive approach to this by allowing the practice of a high Morality (or proper behavior), which defines right and wrong by the society, philosophy, religion, and individual conscience. Students and their instructors often make ethical choices reflexively/ But ethically sensitive situations, where time, emotions and marks are pressured, it becomes all too easy to be blind-sided by temptation/ The best antidote to ethical lapses is to commit in advance to a set of ethical principles - your personal ethical code that follows or grows to it. Any difficulty or concern during the course should be passed directly to the course coordinator. The Lab work should be finished during the lab sessions. Undelivered work will not be marked All the instruments you need should be brought as soon as possible/ A list of that will be provided. You should leave your worktop as clean as possible – Marks are counted towards continuous assessment. Each student should set at the designated area/ The names will be mounted on each bench. Cooperation and professionalism in the lab time are very helpful and encouraged to facilitate your progress in the course. It is applicable when an acceptable and valid excuse is presented at the applicable time N/A Cheating Attendance Absenteeism Students with Special needs Participation Individual conferencing and consultations It is unethical and illegal by any means JUST regulations will be applicable The work should be your own, otherwise it will scored zero. It is mandatory for all lectures and laboratory sessions Every students will be allocated to seat according to group assignments in the lab Attendance is encouraged at all times on time To receive course credit, a student should attend a minimum of 90% of the contact hours of the class. Students who are absent for the lecture must contact the course coordinator prior to the class. If absent from lectures, then the course coordinator will refer to related guidelines set by the university. Any student who is absent on a test day, will have to demonstrate an acceptable medical or social statement explaining the illness or personal crisis as instructed by their faculty. Individual instructors may accommodate by arrangements for a make-up test only when a written request is sent to and approved by the Dean. Any student who feels that s/he may need accommodation for any type of disability is encouraged to contact the course coordinator who will be happy to help in any way. Accommodations to the course plan can be tailored to the needs of specific individuals after consultations with the dean. All students are highly encouraged to participate in the classes and laboratory session. The course coordinator is always available to talk with the student when problems arise. If you have any problems that require the attention of an instructor, do not wait until the problem is insurmountable. If a student must talk with the course coordinator after office hours, an appointment can be made for that time. Do not allow tension to build-up to unsolvable proportions. Course changes Information contained in this course outline is correct at the time of publication. Content of the courses is revised on an ongoing basis to ensure relevance to changing educational, employment needs. The course coordinator reserves the right to add or delete material from courses and will endeavor to provide notice of changes to students as soon as possible. The timetable may also be revised accommodating to holidays and unexpected off days.
