This course is aimed to provide a dense anatomical review related to the structures of the oral cavity. Perfect for any person working in the dentistry profession, the main objective of this course is to stress the importance of anatomical structures and use them as landmarks in dental practice, thereby bridging both subjects.

Included in the studies are; function of facial expression muscles in movement of the oral vestibule, importance and location of salivary glands and the connection of the oral cavity with facia of the neck and thorax to explain possible spread of infection.

The use of 3D anatomical software and cross-sectional imaging related to radiological images used in dental clinics, will give the student a complete and in depth understanding of the anatomy of the head and neck. Along with professionally prepared anatomical human specimens accompanied by a knowledgeable instructor will enable the participants to take part in a blended lab setting creating a great learning environment to simply absorb, discuss and review.


  • Describe dental anatomy of oral cavity and relate to dental practice.
  • Identify and implement the normal landmarks of the oral cavity.
  • Identify the anatomical structures of the head and neck including bones, dental cranial nerves, arterial/venous blood supply and lymphatics and describe the relevance of these structures in dental practice.
  • Recognize oral cavity structures in cross-anatomical sections and implement them into radiological diagnostic.
