OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to describe the process of common oral diseases.
- Explain the following terms: pathology, disease, etiology, pathogenesis, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and prognosis.
- Summarize the categories of disease.
- Compare terminology describing the course of a disease.
- Apply appropriate terminology to describe the clinical and/or radiographic findings associated with pathological conditions affecting the oral region.
Outcome 2: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to assess soft tissue structures and landmarks of the oral cavity.
