Neuroscience for the dentist in the 21st century



Neuroscience for the dentist in the 21st century



FASEB Journal 16(5): A1090-A1091



Currently there are no true guidelines for the core content of a Neuroscience course in dental education. Both the anatomy and physiology parts of national boards have questions covering this area but according to Robertson (J. Dent. Ed. 64: 416, 2000) there is great variability in what and how this material is taught. The Institute of Medicine study > Dental Education at the Crossroads, Challenges and Change, 1995) recommended that basic and clinical sciences curricula should provide a clinically relevant education. One area where there are close ties between basic science and clinical care is the realm of pain control. Here is an opportunity to integrate basic understanding of how the nervous system works with the care and management of dental pain. A proposal for a core curriculum in neuroscience will be addressed which will include basic concepts of neuroscience, pain pathways, autonomic nervous system, detailed information on most of the cranial nerves with special emphasis on facial and trigeminal nerves, and the cranial nerve examination.
