Jump to content. This is a clinically oriented course, which covers topics that were not included in the basic courses of both removable partial denture fabrication and complete denture fabrication. Topics including denture repairs, overdentures, implant supported dentures, single dentures, and combination case will be covered on the complete denture side of the course.
Topics on the removable partial denture side of the course will include rotational path removable partial dentures, swing lock and precision attachment removable partial dentures, as well as repair and maintenance phase information.
Shotwell is currently a full-time faculty member.
He has been an instructor in both the graduate and undergraduate clinics. He also participates in the Dental Faculty Associates practice.
Shotwell's research interests include aspects of color with dental materials as well as in vivo porcelain wear studies. He is also interested in outcome studies that evaluate the patient's perception relative to success of treatment especially for complete denture treatment.
He has recently spent a sabbatical period at Mc Gill University in Montreal, Canada, working to begin a long term clinical trial regarding this research.
