DHP 105 - Radiology

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: Admission to Dental Hygiene Program; COREQUISITE: DHP 104)

Dental Radiology lectures along with the laboratory experience will focus on the introduction and development of technical skills in exposing, processing and mounting digital and film radiographs. Students will develop and perfect intra- and extra-oral exposure techniques, working with dental manikins. Based on the scope of practice, the student will utilize critical thinking and evidenced-based decision making skills that will guide them through dental hygiene care. This course is designed to include a major online component. Assignments, lectures, practice tests, simulations, and discussion will be held online. Time spent in laboratory will be on practice, in-class discussion, knowledge evaluation and group work. (Su)
