Departemen Biologi Oral
Oral Biology deals with the nature of oral-craniofacial tissues and with the application of basic scientific knowledge of normal, as well as, pathologic oral tissues. In the field of Oral Biology, the distinctive combination of structures, tissues type and functions of the oral-craniofacial complex is combined with the basic scientific disciplines in unique point of view to gain the objections of improving the novel and adequate methods to manage, cure or prevent disease. The Oral Biology Department has reponsibilities in research and education on the graduate and postgraduate levels. Theories, case studies and interactive activities are preferred as learning methods, in which include areas in oral immunology, oral facial growth and development including oral tissue structure and function, as well as interactions with other organ bodies in normal and/or pathological conditions, wound healing and tissue repair, biology of caries, aetiology of periodontal disease, oral molecular and cellullar biology. This course encourage active participation of the students in reviewing scientific articles as the basic for paradigm shifts in clinical diagnosis and treatments. Student’s scientific reviews and problem solving sessions are carried out by and challenges student’s capability to involve in leading oral health research. Moreover, continuing innovative methods to gain as much as information will encourage student to be sutainable learners throughout their life.
