ORE Part 2: Dental Manikin

A three day course that prepares students for the Dental Manikin element of ORE Part 2.  Each day includes demonstrations and the opportunity for students to practice each element themselves.

What will I learn?

The course is designed as the starting place to prepare students for the ORE Part 2 Dental Manikin examination.  It delivers an overview of constituent elements of the examination, with demonstrations from experienced staff and provides the opportunity for students to undertake the tasks themselves and receive direct guidance.

Why should I study this course at the Institute?

Demonstrations and student practice take place in well-equipped, state-of-the-art skills laboratories, and the course is predominately spent working on practical skills rather than sitting in lectures.  Many of the teaching staff have experience of passing the ORE themselves, and are on hand to provide individual feedback to students.

Availability: Three days over one week.

Verifiable CPD: 19.5 hours.
