Restorative Dental Hygiene is a two-semester program designed for experienced dental hygienists. Students learn how to perform restorative procedures and preventive measures.
Applicants must be an active registrant with the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario to practice dental hygiene and have at least one year of experience as a dental hygienist.
In compliance with the standards of practice approved by the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario, students will learn to:
- place and finish amalgam
- perform composite and temporary restorations
- take final impressions
- cement provisional restorations
- complete final cementation and bonding of indirect restorations
- perform orthodontic procedures
Learning takes place in co-ordination with Dental Technology, Denturism and Dental Assisting students.
Students practice various procedures on a manikin, after which they provide services in our on-site WAVE Dental Clinic, performing restorative and cosmetic procedures on clients.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
Each George Brown College certificate, diploma, advanced diploma and graduate certificate program is expected to deliver specific program learning outcomes. Program learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate by the end of their program of study. Programs are designed to deliver both vocation or discipline-specific learning outcomes and more generic essential employability skills (including communication, numeracy, critical thinking and problem solving, information management, interpersonal and personal skills).
In addition to the aforementioned learning outcome requirements, College programs are required to provide students with exposure to a breadth of learning beyond their vocational field, to increase their awareness of the society and culture in which they live and work. This breadth requirement is addressed through additional mandatory General Education courses in the program curriculum.
