An air abrasion unit is available and it can be moved into the clinic as required. Unless familiar with the apparatus, a resident’s first use should be under close supervision of an attending who is comfortable with the equipment.
Some of the many applications for air abrasion are:
a. Removal of stains
b. Preparation of pit and fissures prior to sealants
c. Preparation of cavity preps that are small, including cervical abrasion sites
d. Micro-etching porcelain for composite repairs
e. But, NOT for amalgam removal
CLINICAL INTRA-ORAL CAMERA
There is one conventional clinical camera and an intraoral video camera available for documenting cases.
Residents must purchase a digital media compact flash (256 mb) for their own use.
ITERO AND CEREC 3D Systems
The AEGD clinic has an Itero system and Cerec 3D system. Training will be provided before the resident can use the system.

At the end of each appointment period, all clinical services rendered during the appointment must be recorded on the "Continuation Sheet" of the patient's chart. This form must have a signature (no initials) and Provider Number recorded by the instructor supervising the student during the appointment period. An entry in Axium must be made for each appointment.
Using the ATEN system of chart entries, the following information should be listed in the continuation notes: 1) date, 2) department, 3) tooth number, 4) diagnosis, 5) treatment listing all restorative materials (with brand names following each in parenthesis), 6) use of rubber dam, 7) appropriate remarks and/or post-operative instructions listed under E (Evaluation). Standard accepted abbreviations maybe used. Students and faculty must sign every entry and included their provider number.
