The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences provides support in the form of didactic, preclinical, and clinical instruction to students within the School of Dentistry. Courses offered cover principles of acquisition of images, radiographic recognition and interpretation of normal and disease conditions of the oral cavity and hard tissues, patient assessment, and incorporation of findings into treatment planning. The department aims to enable students to excel in compassionate and knowledgeable service to patients that is based on a comprehensive gathering and interpretation of pertinent radiographic data. The Radiologic and Imaging Services clinical program is overseen by Clinic Administration. The didactic components are overseen by the Division of General Dentistry, as well as where faculty reside.
