Learning Outcomes
DENT 262A Oral Biology
  • Understand orofacial growth and the development of mineralized tissues
  • Have an understanding of biochemistry relating to oral biology
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the involvement of oral microorganisms in infectious disease, particularly of the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity
DENT 262B Pharmacology
  • Understand the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs
  • Have an understanding of drug targets, cardiovascular and respiratory pharmacology, Analgesia and Inflammation pharmacology, Endocrine pharmacology CNS pharmacology, Gastrointestinal pharmacology Antimicrobial pharmacology and clinical toxicology
