**Limited Enrollment Course**
This one day course involves making upper and lower alginate impressions on maxillary and mandibular casts. The students will experience taking alginate impressions, which is a must in the dental profession.
Students will learn to mix alginate material by hand, learn placement of sufficient alginate in dental impression trays to produce a negative replica of cast models, and pour gypsum materials in impressions for durable stone casts. Also, students will learn to trim both upper and lower casts to proper dimensions and proper diagnostic height, with hand articulation (Orthodontic Technique).
Finally, the course will teach students timing of dental materials, speed, patience and confidence. The completed casts can be used as an extra education tool for Dental Technician, Dental Assistant and Dental Hygiene Schools. Each participant will receive a Certificate of Completion. Dental assistants and pre-dental students are encouraged to take this course.
