COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Utilize anatomical terms to describe dental anatomy and physiology, tooth morphology,
    structure of the oral cavity,  and regions of the head and neck.
2.  Integrate the knowledge of dental anatomy, tooth morphology, primary and permanent
    dentition and oral cavity structure into clinical practice.

Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
1.   Describe the embryological development of the teeth, face, and oral cavity.
2.   Classify the bones and major anatomic landmarks of the skull.
3.   Describe the histology of bone in terms of cartilage, compact bone, spongy bone and the
      periosteum.
4.   List the structures and describe the action of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
5.   Name the four pairs of paranasal sinuses and correlate their function and physiology to
      dental maladies.
6.   Locate and describe the function of the salivary glands.
7.   Identify and differentiate the major anatomic landmarks of the oral cavity.
8.   Locate and describe the different oral tissues.
9.   Describe and assess the characteristics of normal gingival tissue.
10. Identify and discuss developmental abnormalities.
11. Identify and differentiate the 4 types of teeth and describe their design, function and
      landmarks of each type.
12. Compare and examine the dental arches.
13. Utilize the three tooth numbering systems and cavity classifications to document
      existing restorations, dental caries, missing teeth and dental anomalies.
14. Compare the primary and permanent dentition in terms of size, shape and number.
15. Perform periodontal documentation.
