The surgical model of dentistry is being replaced with a medically-based model called minimally invasive dentistry, which seeks to identify the cause of a disease and treat its symptoms, thereby minimizing hard tissue damage. This course applies the concepts of minimally invasive dentistry to caries management. The multifactorial nature of caries, risk factors, and specific indicators are discussed. Assessing diet, oral hygiene, bacterial load, and susceptibility to infection help create a "road map" for oral health professionals to follow as they treat patients using the medical model. The importance of saliva testing is emphasized and specific treatment protocols are discussed.

Oral health encompasses the craniofacial complex and includes the teeth, periodontium, mucosa, gingiva, oral pharynx, temporomandibular joints, and muscles used for mastication. While men and women face many common oral health issues, it is no longer acceptable to consider oral health to be gender neutral. Indeed, women differ from men in their oral health needs and concerns. This basic-level course explores the variables affecting women’s oral health and discusses the issues and concerns that dental professionals face in providing care to females across their lifespan.

Individuals of all age groups can be affected by family violence.

This basic-level course will enable all members of the dental team to recognize the physical and behavioral signs and symptoms of family violence, differentiate indicators of trauma from normal conditions or accidental injuries, and easily adapt clinical protocols to include identification and intervention for victims of family violence. By applying their knowledge of symptomology and providing appropriate intervention, every member of the dental team can help stem the epidemic of family violence.

The importance of a balanced, nutritious diet to the health of the human body is widely recognized. However, significant numbers of people do not have properly balanced diets and many compensate for this deficiency by ingesting supplemental vitamins and minerals.Most of the common pronouncements with regard to the health benefits of vitamins and minerals address systemic health, but despite its importance to oral health, the relationship of dietary intake and vitamins to the health of the oral cavity is rarely discussed. To fully grasp the role of vitamins in the health of the oral cavity, it is necessary to understand the nature and characteristics of vitamins and minerals and their actions within the body. This basic-level course seeks to remedy this information deficiency and provide dentists, hygienists, and assistants with information on the effect vitamins and minerals have on oral health.
