SP-9 Evolution of a Contemporary Endodontic CurriculumProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Jordan L. Schweitzer, D.D.S., M.S. In the dental marketplace, there will continually be a proliferation of new file systems and obturation techniques available for purchase and use -- all gaining the attention of young practitioners who are continuing to grow and learn. So the real question is, as soon-to-be practitioners, should students be taught the “latest and greatest” or should the endodontic curriculum stay with the tried-and-true gold standards, allowing students to focus on them as stepping stones to more advanced methodologies after graduation? Recently, Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry switched from a conventional rotary system to a newer file system; simultaneously, a change was made from a somewhat controversial obturation system to one which could be conceived as being relatively simple, but with minimal long-term scientific support. Was this the right approach? Also, how has the decrease in the number of routine, uncomplicated clinical cases influenced our curriculum? This presentation will discuss multiple pathways to providing a contemporary endodontic curriculum for predoctoral students, illustrating the complexities and unforeseen difficulties along the way.

SP-6 Remediation Strategy for Students: On the Way to Competency (Educator Forum)Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Alan H. Gluskin, D.D.S. Priya Sharma-Chand, B.D.S., M.S.D. Competency in endodontics for undergraduate dental students is not only difficult to define, but difficult to measure. Every student learns differently, posing challenges to educators during competency assessment, necessitating effective remediation strategies for skill enhancement. The prevalence of differing approaches, and varying remedial modalities adopted across dental schools, not only spells the need for a unified standard in competency assessment, but makes it far more challenging to establish a universally applicable benchmark for the dental student who struggles and requires remediation to overcome deficit skills. There is a need for standards and guidelines that would facilitate educators in identifying the teaching modalities and evaluation techniques that can be incorporated to enhance students’ skills and performance, while making the role of remediation more effective in competency assessment. The domain of remediation needs critical ‘rethink,’ and to be brought within the framework of a clearly defined policy that governs remediation, establishes remedial programs and strategies, and is applicable to achieve the fundamental objective of enabling students to improve their skills and become professionally competent.

PS-9 Dental Team Communication: The Two Essential Skills for Ensuring Intent Equals ImpactProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Brian DesRoches, M.B.A., M.Sc., Ph.D., L.M.F.T. Precision is essential in both endodontic treatment and team communication. However, precision in communication is often hindered by the gap between the intent of one’s communication and its impact on the listener what I intended to communicate and what you heard me communicate are different. The outcome of this gap is miscommunication, misunderstanding, confusion and frustration. By blending research based in the new neuroscience with the intentional application of two practical communication skills, this presentation will demonstrate how to both close this gap when it occurs and increase your precision in communication to reduce its occurrence.
