Each DDS student will have 6 weeks of Oral Surgery rotations, with 4 weeks in the second year and 2 weeks in the third year, while each IDS student will have 1 week. The official didactics course, OS 101, is integrated into the ICS II curriculum and provides the information necessary for students to render treatment in the OS clinic. Initially in your first rotations, your main role is to assist third year students and to perform OS consults and post-operative evaluations. In future rotations, you will gradually assume a more active independent role in rendering treatment. There are 3 competencies to be completed during your OS rotations: OS Consultation, Routine Extraction, and Surgical Extraction.
Outside of Oral Surgery rotations, students of all years are welcome to observe and assist, including during evening clinic. However, when other students are on rotation, please be respectful of their assigned operatories.
