The Act immunizes dental students from tort liability for acts or omissions in providing dental treatment as part of their academic curriculum. Medical facilities, academic institutions, and dentists overseeing the work of the dental treatment are not provided immunity. The Act exempts willful of wanton conduct from the immunity.
