Credits 2.5 / 2 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Division signature is required for registration; Program Eligibility Requirements; Placement into ENGL-100 (ACSR-100), completion of ELAP-120 with a 2.0, or completion of RDNG-030, ACLT-075 or ACLT-076. Co-requisite: Student must also enroll one section of each: DAST-110 , DAST-111 , DAST-112L , DAST-113 , DAST-115 , DAST-116 , DAST-117 ;
A study of basic structure form and functions of the teeth and their related parts. It is the study of the intrinsic and environmental structures of the oral cavity and its blood and nerve supply. The lab portion will provide knowledge of eruption dates individual descriptions and external features of the teeth. Experience will be provided in identifying teeth.
