Genetics Education in Dentistry Case Simulator

teaching genetics to dental and dental hygiene students

The Genetics Education in Dentistry Case Simulator was developed at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry with help from genetics experts from our school and from across the country. The primary goal is to teach genetics to dental and dental hygiene students and improve their decision-making by applying scientific evidence during patient care. By completing Web-based cases students will also increase their understanding in genetics, genome technology and their ethical, legal and social implications for oral health care providers. This is accomplished through case patients and interactive tools that can be incorporated into a variety of curricula.

I like this research very much. I had done a presentation on the genetic engineering of tooth that developed natural tooth from by implanting the stem cells. Is this education focused on the same concept.
