Students will develop a “medication history”; learn clinical pharmacology and how patients’ oral health is affected by medications. Develop a medical risk assessment and treatment approach for medically complex patient and learn to implement modifications to dental care based on the medical risk assessment. 2- Oral Radiology focuses on both the technical aspect of obtaining a full mouth radiographic series and the skills involved with radiographic interpretation.
