DEN 122 - Oral Anatomy and Physiology II

2 Credits

This course will study the embryologic development of the face, oral cavity and the teeth and histologic structure of the teeth and oral tissues, and review developmental conditions and anomalies related to dental and oral structures. Function and variations in function will be review as well as the clinical significance and application of knowledge to patient evaluation and treatment. Two class hours, one conference hour.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of all previous semesters DEN courses with a grade of C or better.
