   The curriculum of the School of Dentistry is designed to be responsive to the needs of con-
temporary dental practitioners. This is exemplified in the School of Dentistry’s comprehensive
patient care program.

coMPrehensiVe Patient care PrograM
   The clinical curriculum of the School of Dentistry is based on a general practice model. The
philosophy of this model is to provide quality comprehensive dental care without fragmenta-
tion into separate specialties or disciplines. Students learn to focus on the patient’s total dental
needs rather than a single clinical procedure. The program that applies this philosophy is the
Comprehensive Patient Care Program.
   The Comprehensive Patient Care Program is patient centered and guided by general practice
principles. This allows for easier integration of basic, behavioral and clinical science concepts in
the delivery of patient care. One of the primary objectives of the Comprehensive Patient Care
System is to build upon the principles the students have been exposed to during their training
in the preclinical disciplines. Students are assigned to a Comprehensive Patient Management
Group (CPMG) which is operated as a group practice. The group leader administers each CPMG
and monitors the progress of each patient through his/her treatment plan. Students interact with
support personnel modeled after a private practice setting. A Group Coordinator schedules
patient appointments utilizing state-of-the-art clinic management software. Dental assistants
and additional faculty support complete the CPMG. Students collaborate with specialty disci-
plines, similar to a referral system used in private practice. Clinic treatment and instruction is
designed to assure clinical competence in the various dental disciplines. Each junior and senior
dental student is expected to demonstrate a satisfactory level of competency in the assigned
CPMG and during block rotation assignments. Basic skills and mock board examinations allow
the students the opportunity to demonstrate basic clinical knowledge and its application in the
performance of patient treatment. Each CPMG holds weekly dental rounds sessions in which
students present clinical cases and related issues of patient care.
   Both first- and second-year students participate in CPMG activities and are assigned to
provide simple dental procedures to patients and to serve as dental assistants for third and fourth
year students.
   The curriculum enhances the development of interpersonal patient skills and the reinforce-
ment of the moral and ethical standards of the dental profession. The School of Dentistry has a
long record of treating the underserved throughout the state of Wisconsin, as well as reaching
out to the community through both urban and rural community sites. These are integral parts
of the students’ education and, as such, students are required to complete assigned rotations
in order to graduate. These rotations include, but are not limited to, the Marquette University
Community Dental Clinics in the city of Milwaukee, the Tri-County Community Dental Clinic
in Appleton, the Ministry Dental Center in Stevens Point, and the Chippewa Valley Technical
College in Eau Claire. Students provide both preventive and clinical dental services to these
underserved populations.

         note: All courses have initial discipline designators (DEIN = Dental Interdisciplinary cours-
     es; DEGD = Dental General Dental Science courses; DESS = Dental Surgical Science courses;
     DEDS = Dental Developmental Science courses; DECS = Dental Clinical Services courses; BISC
     = Biomedical Sciences courses). With the exception of BISC course numbers, each digit in a
     number identifies a different characteristic of the course and/or when it is offered. All courses
     start with a 7 which is the University designation for professional education. The second digit
     in the dental courses stands for the year in the program and the third digit stands for the semes-
     ter. The fourth digit stands for the type of course (0-1 Lecture; 2-3 Laboratory; 4-6 Clinical; 7
     Research; 8 Rounds; 9 Other).
