GDSC 5801 - Senior Comprehensive Case Portfolio

Seniors will develop a portfolio of treated patients to be documented for teaching and illustrative purposes. Included in this portfolio is the Senior Comprehensive Care Case which should be initiated in the junior year. Additionally, one additional patient is to be selected and the treatment documented for the esthetic portfolio case. The treatment should be selected from one of three “treatment type” categories (see below under Course Goals & Protocol, Item #2) which will allow the student to demonstrate excellence in a range of disciplines that cover important aspects of esthetic and restorative dentistry. As part of your senior comprehensive care experience, you will have the unique opportunity to learn from leading clinicians through the lecture/ participation series, INDICATION-BASED TREATMENT SOLUTIONS (IBTS). This series of lectures is designed to help expand your knowledge base and treatment planning skills from recognized experts in their respective fields (see IBTS course syllabus). The Senior Comprehensive Care Porfolio Series and the IBTS courses are thus intended to complement one another to provide a strong foundation for evidenced-based care. Portfolios will be used as teaching aids, for patient presentations, and as patient education tools for the students’ future clinical practices. Additionally, these portfolios may serve you, the future dentist, as a means of providing educational presentations to local study groups or for publication in dental journals (as a reminder, patient privacy must be maintained for presentations outside of the CDM environment). In the spring of the senior year, the senior comprehensive care case and esthetic case is to be documented in a PowerPoint presentation and presented to classmates and faculty. This presentation will serve to demonstrate the students’ proficiency in diagnosis, treatment planning, providing the actual treatment, development of a professional presentation, and communication skills.
