The Department of Diagnostic Sciences has three divisions: Oral Diagnosis, Oral Pathology, and Oral Radiology, all with their own director and teaching programs.
Pathology is responsible for all teaching of general and oral pathology to dental, dental hygiene and graduate students; provides consultation and biopsy services to the College and the professional community, and has a residency program in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.
Radiology is responsible for all imaging programs and through the Imaging Center a service to dental professionals.
Oral Diagnosis combines teaching with patient screening, evaluation and treatment planning for the College as well as a limited care treatment clinic.
