This includes knowledge of the supporting tissues of the teeth or their substitutes, in health and in disease. All factors which contribute either to the maintenance of health, or to the onset and progression of diseases of these tissues. It further enables them to develop the skills, dexterity, and dedication to assess the general oral and periodontal health status of their patients in order to formulate and record basic management plans. Towards the end of third year, students work in pairs to treat simple Periodontology patients with full supervision.

In addition, they receive didactic components of the Oral Medicine component in their 4th year of study.
