In the D3 and D4 year, students have internal rotations in pediatric dentistry and oral surgery, where they learn the clinical techniques specific to these disciplines, in a setting that optimizes patient care as well as student learning. External rotations in specialty clinics outside the dental school, such as hospital dentistry, provide experiences that help students understand how oral care is provided in other practice settings and to learn how to work effectively with dental specialists and other healthcare professionals.
