April 14th, Part II

This particular clinic session was the first-year’s “Scale Final.” The purpose of the scale final is for students to demonstrate that they have attained the necessary clinical skills, in the areas of scaling and polishing, to move on to senior year. The students pre-selected a patient, according to required guidelines given by the clinical coordinator, and pre-selected one quadrant to scale. I worked with my primary site mentor during this time, and I found this to be an invaluable experience.
