Interns' Training Program
TREATMENT PLANNING SEMINAR
Interns' TPC Supervisor : PROF. YOUSEF F. TALIC
The session was conceived as a forum for Interns and their supervisors in discussing the procedures to be undertaken in the treatment of complicated cases. Knowing the right approach will therefore, allow the Interns to perform the appropriate treatment plan for the patients.
Each Intern should be given a chance to present a case that will develop his/her ability in organizing a case presentation. Discussion should be made with other Interns to solicit their opinions.
This session deals with the comprehensive clinical practice where Interns are completely trained to perform various types of cases in all areas of dentistry.
