Welcome to the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. It is our pleasure to have you on board for the annual pre-dental clinical simulation course.  This course has been designed for pre-dental students to gain insight and a hands-on approach to learning about what the clinical portion of dental school entails. More importantly it is an opportunity to begin to develop the hand skills that are necessary to succeed. It is an opportunity to find out "if dentistry is for you."

This course will reveal the art and science behind dentistry. Students that complete this course will have a better idea of what it takes to be a dental student, gain confidence, and become a more competitive applicant.

Students attending the predental clinical simulation course will have the opportunity to learn the following in a state of the art pre-clinical simulation lab:

    • Use various dental instruments.

    • Use a high speed handpiece to prepare class cavity preparations.

    • Develop hand skills and a working knowledge of clinical dentistry.
    • Take part in a presentation given by the OU COD admissions office.
