Course Description

Students learn the anatomy of regions important to dentistry by recreating them in three dimensions using waxes, acrylic, clay, wires and similar media to represent muscles, nerves, TMJ, etc., possibly using a skull as a framework. Suitable subjects include the oral cavity, muscles of mastication and the distribution of the trigeminal nerve as well as other areas of interest to the student. This exercise makes the anatomy studied almost unforgettable.
