This course is a prerequisite for the EFDA continuing education course at The Ohio State University.

This course provides an overview of the terminology and characteristics of all teeth in the adult and deciduous dentition. The course is open to all dental professionals, but it is a mandatory prerequisite for acceptance into the EFDA Continuing Education program offered through OSU. The course will include hands-on identification of all important tooth structures (pits, fissures, fossae, cusps, ridges, contours, preparation walls and angles, etc.).  Prior to July 16, participants will be emailed two documents that must be read/studied before attending the class session.

At the conclusion of the course, those certified dental assistants or registered dental hygienists who plan to apply for the EFDA curriculum will take a short written quiz on the course material and will be expected to complete an amalgam exercise. The results of the quiz and amalgam exercise will be used during the selection process for the EFDA course*.

3D imaging has recently innovated diagnostic records in our practices with 3D digital models, photographs and Cone Beam CT imaging. 3D images provide insight into dental compensations and skeletal changes in different approaches for orthopedic correction of Class II and Class III malocclusions. While longitudinal data for orthopedic correction is currently only short-term, surgical correction may also show remarkable post-surgical adaptations and relapse. The envelope of changes with orthopedic and surgical correction has now been updated with new understanding of 3D facial changes relative to the cranial base and with bone remodeling and response to growth and treatment.
