Department of Oral Medicine & Radiology

Overview

Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology is unique in that it combines Oral Medicine and Radiology. It sits at the interface between dentistry and medicine. It is a specialist clinical area of care for treating head and neck medical diseases. In some instances, mouth symptoms and signs reflect problems only in the mouth. However, in some cases mouth symptoms can suggest a connection with disease or problems in other parts of the body and it is the Oral Medicine specialist who can best decide what tests or investigations are needed in these situations. Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology deals with the acquisition and interpretation of radiographic imaging studies performed for diagnosis and treatment guidance for conditions affecting the maxillofacial region.
