An Articulation Model in Dental Assisting for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A Continuation.
Sylves, Jane M.; Boody, Sandra
A curriculum development project was conducted to generate additional competency-based modules to be used within the articulation model for Pennsylvania dental assisting programs, established in 1988. Project activities included reviewing, modifying, and providing parallel competency-based structure for the courses at the A.W. Beattie Technical School and the Dental Assisting/Oral Hygiene Program of the University of Pittsburgh that comprise the competency area "chairside dental assisting." The project also developed a concise presentation of the advantages of competency-based articulation, based on the model developed earlier, for presentation to at least three other accredited postsecondary dental assisting programs in the state. The final model, including the competency-based modules, process recording of articulation strategies, and the introduction for postsecondary school, was prepared for distribution by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. (Attachments to the project report include an articulation examination, course objectives, correspondence, project publicity, and sample articulation agreement.) (KC)
