Department of Oral Medicine

Message from HOD, Oral Medicine - Avicenna Dental College

Oral Medicine has generally been defined as that discipline within dentistry which deals with the diagnosis and essentially non-surgical treatment of the diseases of oral cavity and the oral manifestations of systemic diseases. Oral radiology uses ionizing radiation in diagnosis and therapy. The subject of Oral Medicine & Radiology is taught during the 3rd year of BDS. Our aim is to acquaint the students with the subject and teach how to, as future clinicians, independently make a case report, integration of the oral and systemic signs and symptoms, making a diagnosis using various investigative procedures including radiotherapy and planning the individualized treatment for the patient.
