2. Describe the histology of bone in terms of: cartilage, compact bone, spongy bone and the periosteum.   
3. List the structures and describe the action of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
4. Identify major muscles of mastication, facial expression, floor of the mouth and extrinsic muscles of the tongue.   
5. Name the four pairs of paranasal sinuses and correlate their function and physiology to dental maladies.

7. Identify and differentiate the major anatomic landmarks of the oral cavity.   
8. Locate, and describe different oral tissues.   
9. Assess the genetic factors that most commonly affect dental development.    
10. Compare the five stages of development in the growth period of a tooth.  
11. Describe and assess the characteristics of normal gingival tissue.  
12. Identify and discuss developmental abnormalities.  
13. Identify and differentiate the 4 types of teeth and describe their design, function and landmarks of each type.
14. Compare and examine the dental arches.  
15. Utilize the three numbering systems and cavity classifications to chart existing restorations, dental caries, missing teeth and dental anomalies.  
16. Compare the primary and permanent dentition in terms of size, shape and number.
17. Perform a periodontal charting.
18. Describe the embryological development of the teeth, face and oral cavity.
