DENTAL PROSTHESIS (5A -1S) ATT
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Provide students with basic theoretical/practical elements to enable them to take a systematic and rational approach to diagnosis and oral rehabilitation therapy with fixed and removable prostheses, both partial and total, so that they are able to design and realise the most commonly used prosthetic devices.
Have passed all the previous years' exams and the exam in Periodontology and Implantology
