Chris has just completed module 2 of the Dawson Academy core curriculum - 'Treatment Planning Functional Aesthetic Excellence'. The focus of this programme is to help dentists predictably diagnose and treatment plan cases from the very simple to the more challenging.
Chris found this module particularly enjoyable and inspiring. He was able to practice the concepts taught on study casts of actual patients under the watchful eye of the course tutors Ian, Neil and Chris, who were always available to offer advice, wisdom and encouragement. Together with the skills Lucy has also learned on Dawson's nurses course, this should really help us take our standard of care to the highest level. Looking forward to module 3 in the New Year!
Lucy has just completed an intensive two-day dental assistant course alongside Chris at the Dawson Academy, designed to teach dental assistants the skills necessary to support their dentists in diagnosis and treatment planning and the provision of 'complete care'. A programmed approach to gathering patient information and records was the basis of the class.
Lucy learned about the concept of 'complete dentistry', how to take great dental impressions, pour study models, take a face-bow recording of the jaws, and then mount them on an articulator (man-made jaws). She also learned the assistant’s role in the complete care practice and examination. and how to take dental photographs.
All in all this course will really give Lucy the necessary tools to help us provide the highest level of care for our patients which is what the Dawson Academy philosophy is all about!
