OBIOL202A Oral Biology I Course Page

Description: Basic microscopic anatomy pertinent to the main body systems and a more detailed treatment of the structure and development of oral tissues, with special reference to the teeth and their supporting structures. Clinical examples and a demonstration lab will be used to enhance the teaching of basic anatomy.

OBIOL202B Oral Biology I Course Page

Description: Basic microscopic anatomy pertinent to the main body systems and a more detailed treatment of the structure and development of oral tissues, with special reference to the teeth and their supporting structures. Clinical examples and a demonstration lab will be used to enhance the teaching of basic anatomy.

OBIOL302 Oral Biology II Course Page

Description: A multidisciplinary course that examines the unique physiology, biochemistry and nutrition of oral structures. Topics will include functions of the periodontal tissues, the termporomandibular joint, mastication, deglutition, speech, special reflexes involving cranial nerves, receptors of the stomatognathic system, and salivary glands and relevance of saliva to caries. Oral manifestations of metabolic disease, the physiology of pain, and the role of nutrition in the development of oral tissues and the maintenance of oral health will also be discussed.

OBIOL305A Pathology Course Page

Description: Introduction to the principles of pathology with consideration of the more common diseases affecting the human body. Visual differentiation between normal and abnormal tissues; the physiological and pathological changes which affect the teeth, their supporting structures and the oral mucosa, including oral manifestations of selected systemic disturbances.

OBIOL305B Pathology Course Page

Description: Introduction to the principles of pathology with consideration of the more common diseases affecting the human body. Visual differentiation between normal and abnormal tissues; the physiological and pathological changes which affect the teeth, their supporting structures and the oral mucosa, including oral manifestations of selected systemic disturbances.
