Oral pathology is the specialty of dentistry and pathology that involves the nature, identification, and management of diseases, investigation of their causes, processes and effects by means of research, diagnoses using clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical or other examinations.
Oral Microbiology involves the study of a range of micro-organisms, their colonization and virulence factors, and of their interactions between each other and host cells, especially in development of microbial communities. The course covers the mechanisms by which micro-organisms cause diseases, and how microbes colonize and live in harmony with the host. Research involved in the discipline is closely linked with the study of the structure and function of the oral mucosa, and of the secretory immune responses. The study of Oral Microbiology promotes an understanding of the way microbes influence oral health and oral health-care delivery.
