Dental Restorative Functions Endorsement
Want to take on more clinical responsibility? The Dental Restorative Functions Endorsement is a great way to add a new dimension to your dental career.
Dental Restorative Functions Endorsement is an introduction to the study of the materials used in restorative dentistry, including amalgam and composite. Laboratory and patient care activities are designed to reinforce course content and to prepare the student to take the WREB restorative exam. Participants will learn restorative techniques on WREB-approved Dentoforms and provide a variety of restorative experiences on patients at a competent skill level under indirect supervision of clinic faculty. Completion of the course allows participants to take the Western Regional Examining Board Restorative Exam. PCC’s course curriculum has been approved by the Oregon Board of Dentistry.
Students must have a license to practice dental hygiene in Oregon or Washington; OR must have a current EFDA certificate.
This course exceeds the hours required by the Oregon Board of Dentistry and consists of 18 hours didactic (16 online, 2 in person), 40 hours of lab and 24 hours of patient experience.
Didactic information will be accessed through Desire2Learn, an on-line method to deliver education. Additional literature, assignments and quizzes are used outside the classroom to enhance course materials; PowerPoint handouts and other course materials will be posted on-line.
