COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Demonstrate knowledge pertaining to the permanent and primary dentition, tissues of the teeth, dental anomalies, and descriptive terminology to the clinical practice of dental hygiene.
2. Use their knowledge of dental anatomy and tooth morphology during extra-oral/intra-oral examination and dental restorative charting.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Name, describe and locate the anatomy of permanent and primary dentition.
2. Identify and explain the morphologic differences between the primary and permanent dentition.
3. List the eruption and exfoliation sequence of primary dentition and the eruption sequence of permanent dentition.
4. Define the descriptive terminology as related to the maxillary/mandibular arches, teeth, and related structures.
5. Differentiate anomalies of both permanent and primary dentition.
6. Demonstrate the Universal, International Standard Organization (ISO) and Palmer systems of tooth identification.
7. Describe the classification of occlusion and recognize early signs of deviation in deciduous, mixed, and permanent dentitions.
8. Identify the regions of the oral cavity proper, and the head and neck.
9. Chart existing restorations, unsound dentition, missing teeth, impacted teeth, and dental anomalies and conditions.
10. Perform an extra and intraoral exam using correct palpation techniques.
