Instructional Prep of New Material
7/2010 - 6/2013

Prepared Case studies and excersises for the pediatric Dentistry Clinic ( Undergraduate ). These materials provide clinical cases with intraoral and extraoral photos and radiographs of common pediatric conditions. It should help the students understand more rare and unusual conditions. Restorative cases and excersises should help them enhance the diagnostic and treatment planing sills and help them be more comfortable with diet and OH counselling, Antibiotic prescription and anticepatory guidance discussions. 

I created 4 full clinical cases ( photographs, Radiographs, Medical history and relevant Dental history) for the students to practice diagnosis and treatment planning when they do not have patinets during Pediatric Clinic Blocks. 

I also put some special clinical situation ( Ankylosed teeth, trauma, Oral Pathology, Oral habits, Poor quality work, Oral antibiotics prescription excersises ...ect) in clinical senarios and made it available for the students to practice and expand thier knowledge in Pediatric Dentistry
