ORAL12002 - Oral Health Pre Clinical Practice 1

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit you will gain theoretical knowledge in dental materials, restorative procedures, radiation safety and radiographic imaging procedures. You will also translate and integrate this knowledge in a simulated environment while fulfilling workplace health and safety, equipment maintenance and record management requirements. On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to demonstrate practical skills in dental restorations in adults of all ages. You will also be able to take both intra-oral and extra-oral radiographs safely and competently in a simulated environment. You will be able to communicate information regarding oral health in oral and written forms utilising appropriate interpersonal / team communication skills, professional attitudes and ethical behaviours.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
