INTRODUCTION

The purpose of any academic department is the positive transformation of the behaviours of students in terms of acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes.  In order to achieve the desired results, objectives are clearly stated for each course to serve as measures of control and evaluation; and the goals of the Department of Restorative Dentistry, one of the five Departments in the Faculty of Dental Sciences, are congruent with the goals of University of Medical Sciences, Ondo, as contained in the current medical and dental curricula.  The Department of Restorative Dentistry offers pre-doctoral comprehensive and integrated modular courses in the following disciplines:

a. Conservative dentistry which comprises operative dentistry, fixed prosthodontics and endodontics,

b. Removable prosthodontics; and

c. Dental biomaterial Science

These disciplines are taught and learnt through series of lectures, seminars, laboratory exercises and clinical experiences to perform several skill assessments.  Evaluations are designed to develop competence, confidence and knowledge in clinical restorative dentistry.  On the successful completion of the requisite experiences and evaluations, students will be prepared to face competency examination. After successful completion of the competency examination, students will be provided with the opportunity to treat patients more independently in Advanced Restorative Dentistry.



OBJECTIVES

The philosophy of the Department of Restorative Dentistry is to produce high quality dentists who can compete favourably in local and international labour market.

          1. The overall goal of the department is to develop academic and clinical programmes of excellence in teaching, research and services (patient care) compatible with the programmes of all other departments and the general philosophy of the Faculty of Dental Sciences and the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo.

          2. To assemble a departmental faculty of excellence in the specialties of conservative dentistry, prosthetic dentistry and science of dental materials.

          3. To prepare dentists for leadership role in the health team so that they can work harmoniously with dental nurses, therapists, technicians, technologists and other members of the team.

         4. To develop and maintain adequate physical facilities to produce a minimum of ten (10) dentists annually.

           5. To continue to attract highly rated undergraduate students to join the departmental faculty for subsequent postgraduate training in Restorative Dentistry in the nearest future.

         6. To produce high quality dentists who will eventually become specialists and teachers in Restorative Dentistry for employment by other dental schools.
