General and Oral Microbiology

DENT 1013

Students study groupings of micro-organisms starting with the general characteristics of morphology and growth. The role these micro-organisms play in the initiation and progression of human diseases is considered as well as modes of disease transmission, and the necessity for infection prevention and control procedures within oral health settings. Students examine the microbiology of the oral cavity and its relationship to common oral diseases.
