Our principal duty is to teach many of the basic sciences to UIC's dental students. We are also teaching advanced oral sciences to graduate students. The Department is responsible for dental undergraduate courses Gross Anatomy (including Head and Neck Anatomy), Neuroanatomy, General Histology, Oral Histology, and Biology of the Human Dentition. Graduate classes encompass Advanced Oral Histology and other classes of the Masters' program. We are also contributing to non-departmental Graduate Courses such as the Seminars in Oral Sciences and Research Methodology. Our first-rate teaching level has been rewarded by numerous "Golden Apple" teaching awards to our faculty.
