Catalog Description:
Untitled document
This course is designed to provide an introduction to clinical and diagnostic general and oral pathology. Emphasis will be placed on the recognition of the presence of abnormalities. The student will gain foundational knowledge upon which to base a differential diagnosis of any lesion which is likely to be met in the general dental practice.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of DH 74 and Concurrent Enrollment in DH 79


Recommended Preparation:

Limits on Enrollment:
Acceptance to the Allied Dental Programs. Students are accepted into a Dental Program through the application process and as a cohort and take courses in sequential order.

COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Correlate and integrate didactic knowledge of oral diseases to the clinical practice of dental
    hygiene.
2.  Apply background knowledge to facilitate clinical recognition and appropriate referral of oral
    pathologic conditions.

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1.   Define basic terminology relating to oral pathology and describe the clinical appearance of
      soft tissue lesions.
2.   List and define the eight diagnostic categories that contribute to the diagnostic process.
3.   Explain inflammation including clinical appearance and healing process of the body.
4.   Describe the process of regeneration and repair.
5.   Describe injuries to the teeth.
6.   Describe injuries to the oral soft tissues.
7.   Describe findings of injuries and inflammation on images.
8.   Describe the primary differences between the immune response and the inflammatory
      response.
9.   Describe immunologic pathogenesis of oral diseases.
10. Describe, give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for autoimmune diseases that
      affect the oral cavity.
11. Describe, give clinical/radiographic and oral manifestations and therapy for infectious
      diseases that affect the oral cavity.
12. Describe, give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for fungal diseases that affect
      the oral cavity.
13. Define and describe developmental disorders/abnormalities or hard and soft tissues.
14. Define and describe odontogenic and non odontogenic cysts.
15. Describe and give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for developmental
      abnormalities

17. Identify the differences between benign and malignant neoplasms
18. Describe and give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for benign and malignant
      neoplasms.
19. Explain what is meant by a gross chromosomal abnormality and give three examples of
      syndromes that result from gross chromosomal abnormalities.
20. List the four inheritance patterns.
21. Give the inheritance pattern and describe the oral manifestations and if appropriate the
      characteristics for inherited diseases.
22. Discuss the significance of systemic diseases to oral health and apply this knowledge to
      patient care planning
23. Describe and give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for systemic diseases
      which include oral manifestations.
24. Describe symptoms suggestive of temporomandibular disorder
25. Describe and give clinical/radiographic manifestations and therapy for temporomandibular
      disorders.  
26. Describe how imaging is used in the evaluation of a patient with symptoms suggestive of
      temporomandibular dysfunction.
