Restorative and Comprehensive Care

The Department of Restorative Dentistry and Comprehensive Care provides training in clinical dentistry and applied basic science. The department maintains the school’s Simulation Clinic for preclinical education and the Comprehensive Care Modules (CCM) for the clinical care of adult patients, both of which contribute to the transition from didactic through preclinical to clinical studies.

The department supports the education of pre-doctoral students in the practice of general dentistry through the didactic, preclinical, and clinical component.  Advanced studies are offered to graduate students through the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency and Endodontics Residency Programs, and the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Externship.
