Assessment
Unaided Work:
Individual theoretical preparation for each class, independent study of literature.
Assessment Criteria:
• Active participation in practical work, written homework of appropriate quality and submitted in due time, quality of oral answers during all classes. • Theoretical and practical skills’ assessment in colloquia. • At the end of the course the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE), which contains 9 practical and theoretical stations, is held. 1. To do a test with appropriate anatomical structures, 2. To demonstrate methods and instrumentation for dental anaesthesia on phantom in the upper jaw, 3. To demonstrate methods and instrumentation for dental anaesthesia on phantom in the lower jaw, 4. To demonstrate methods and instrumentation for exodontics on phantom in the upper jaw, 5. To demonstrate methods and instrumentation for exodontics on phantom in the lower jaw. 6. To demonstrate Ivy / Ernst ligatures and removal of ligatures, 7. To demonstrate incision, sutures, removal of the sutures, 8. To demonstrate CPR on RESUSCI ANNIE, 9. To demonstrate preparation for the operation, aseptics and antiseptics.

Learning Outcomes
Knowledge:• Recognise anatomical structures of head and face from the point of view of a surgeon and describe operations on teeth, jaws and soft tissue of oro-maxillofacial region in normal and cases of inflammation, injuries, pathology of salivary glands, temporomandibular joint, lymphatic nods and vessels; • describe clinical aspects of tissue reparative regeneration; • demonstrate methods and instrumentation for anaesthesia and surgery, and first preclinical manual comprehensive skills in dental anaesthesia and exodontics.
Skills:On successful completion of the course the students will be able to: • choose and use right instruments and apply the most appropriate methods of dental anaesthesia on phantom; • demonstrate methods and instrumentation for exodontics on phantom; • demonstrate incision, sutures, removal of the sutures; • demonstrate Ivy/Ernst ligatures and remove ligatures.
Competencies:On successful completion of the course the students will be able to start clinical training for dental anaesthesia, simple exodontics, incision, sutures, intermaxillar fixation.
