DESCRIPTION

The mission of the graduate studies program in oral biology is to foster intellectual curiosity, excellence, and creative vision in the students, and to prepare them as future leaders in the fields of academic dentistry and dental and craniofacial research.

Oral biology & tooth morphology is a foundation course in dentistry which is taught during the first year. The course consists of four components including Oral Histology, Oral Anatomy, Oral Physiology and Tooth Morphology. Oral Biology includes the study of development, structure and function of oral cavity (mouth). The course begins with an introduction to the structure and development of teeth. This will be followed by detailed study of the tooth and supporting structures of the tooth. Also included in the course are study of the related oral tissues (oral mucosa, salivary glands & temporomandibular joint) and relevant physiology of oral cavity. There are three lectures scheduled every week on the subject and each lecture is followed by a practical session. Oral Biology and tooth Morphology are examined as one university subject in First Professional BDS examination

The Department of Oral Biology provides graduate, pre-doctoral and dental hygiene students with an educational foundation in the basic sciences, including instruction in microbiology, biochemistry, nutrition, anatomy, pharmacology and physiology. The department collaborates with the Department of Dental Public Health to coordinate the school’s preclinical problem-based learning courses. With increased emphasis on active learning, faculty is challenged to develop innovative ways to present increasing amounts of information.
