COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Identify the areas of the head and neck region of the human.
2. Describe the normal development of the structures of the head and
neck.
3. Recognize developmental abnormalities, such as cleft lip and cleft
palate.
4. Recognize the anatomical landmarks used in the administration of
local anesthesia.
5. Describe the process of embryological development of the head and
neck region of the oral cavity.
6. Explain the structural relationships of the oral cavity and how they
function in a healthy state of dynamic equilibrium.
7. Identify normal histological structures of the head and neck,
including the oral cavity in microscope.
8. Describe the basic tissues of the body.
9. Identify and describe the organ systems of the head and neck.
10. Apply knowledge of head and neck structures to the extra oral and
intraoral examination and administration of local anesthetics in
clinical hygiene courses.
