Instructor information :

Area of Study :

• To promote advanced knowledge about dental anatomy and physiology. • To provide expanded knowledge about human dentition (permanent molars and deciduous dentition, physiologic significance of tooth form and different types of occlusion). • To serve as a basis for understanding the clinical courses such as Pedodontics, Orthodontics, Operative dentistry, Endodontics as well as prosthodontics and crown and bridge.

Course outcomes:

a. Knowledge and Understanding:

1- Identify both deciduous and permanent teeth
2- Memorize the chronology
3- Describe the anatomical changes induced in the mandible by age
4- State the significance of physiologic tooth form in protecting the periodontium
5- Describe the different curves to which the arrangement of teeth conforms.
6- Describe the relation of maxillary and mandibular teeth in normal centric occlusion as well as during different mandibular movements

b. Intellectual Skills:
