To learn, student need to have exposure to the full range of treatment options and be able to choose the most suitable one for each need. At CUO we use a range of technologies and materials to perform the treatments, so that students can become familiar with the different features of each and find which ones they prefer to work with.
We use a different supplier each term for basic materials (silicones, cements, alginates, resins, etc.). This mean that over the two years that the students spend at the Clinic, they get to work with six different brands of products, all of which have prior approval from the Faculty.
In addition, each student has their own rotary instruments: dental turbines, contra-angles, hand pieces, etc. In order to learn about their characteristics and functioning, throughout the year the various commercial firms are invited to present the students with their products in specific sessions.
