DES1100L - Dental Materials Lab (AS)
1 credits (2 lab hours)
This course is designed to acquaint the student with the physical and chemical properties of materials used in dental practice. Emphasis is placed on why specific materials are used, rather than solely upon manipulative techniques. The laboratory phase affords the student the opportunity to develop manipulative skills with the materials used within the auxiliaries' scope of dental practice and to evaluate the effects of specific materials in the oral environment.
