General Information

Overview

This unit introduces key topics in oral anatomy, which will enable you to begin preclinical training in term 2, and will form the foundations for clinical practice. In the first half of this unit you will study morphology of teeth, sequence of eruption and basic occlusion. The study of distinct features and traits of teeth will enable you to identify and examine teeth, as well as develop an awareness of root morphology required for primary tooth extractions and periodontal treatment for the adult dentition. The study of the sequence of eruption and exfoliation will develop your understanding of the changes with age from infancy to adulthood. This knowledge and understanding will also enable you to predict changes in the dentition with age and identify abnormalities in the eruption sequence. The study of dental morphology and occlusion will provide you with an understanding of tooth shape and function that applies to the restoration of natural tooth form. The second half of this unit will introduce you to anatomy of the head and neck, including surface anatomy, bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and lymphatics. Applications of this knowledge, in patient examination and local anaesthesia, will be developed further in ORAL11005 Oral Anatomy 2 in term 2.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Feedback on the student evaluations and residential school

Feedback

Students enjoyed the small group study sessions at residential school in the anatomy tutorial rooms and benefitted from sharing learning experiences with their peers.

Recommendation

Although the intense two-day residential school will not be included in 2020 as the until will be offered On-campus only, similar small group study sessions will be scheduled.

Feedback from Feedback on the student evaluations and residential school

Feedback

Students felt they could understand the theory learnt in lectures better when they were able to handle the skulls and models and ask questions of the lecturers and tutors.

Recommendation

Students will work with anatomical models in tutorial sessions. In addition, a number of laboratory sessions will be scheduled where students can access a range of models for studying oral anatomy and completing practical tasks.

Feedback from Feedback on the student evaluations

Feedback

Students would like more information and direction on the written examination as there was a lot to learn.

Recommendation

As ORAL11004 and ORAL11005 have undergone unit changes from 2019 to 2020, the final written exams will vary from past exam papers. A discussion on previous exam questions will be included in each weekly lecture in 2020. Practice questions will be included each week to help students prepare for the written examination.

Feedback from Feedback from Residential School

Feedback

Students would like more advice on which skull model to purchase for study. Students would appreciated more directions as some students found they were a many weeks into the term before they made a decision.

Recommendation

In past years, students have been given advice on where to purchase skull models for study, as models are especially helpful for students studying by distance. In 2020, all students will be on-campus and will have access to skulls in weekly tutorial sessions. Even though there will be less need, students could still benefit by having a skull for personal study. Information on purchasing skulls and recommendations will be included on the moodle site.

Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Identify and name teeth in the human dentitions and anatomical features of the head and neck
  2. Describe the anatomy of the head and neck relevant to the function of the oral cavity
  3. Describe features and traits of teeth in the human dentitions, as well as normal sequence of eruption and exfoliation, and occlusion
  4. Demonstrate appropriate oral and written communication skills, professional attitudes and ethical behaviours as required of an Oral Health Therapist.

In the clinic and preclinical laboratories, all students must wear name tag, CQU oral health polo, black trousers and low-heeled closed-in black shoes, protective eyewear, have their hair tied back and wear no jewellery on their hands or arms. All garments must be laundered and ironed. In the simulation laboratory, a clinic coat is required to be worn over the oral health polo. In the clinic, students are required to wear an outer protective garment such as a short-sleeved theatre gown. (The theatre gown is not required until week 10). Oral health polo, clinic coat, theatre gown and protective glasses can be purchased from the CQU bookshop. Name tags will be supplied.

Students must abide by workplace health and safety and infection control policies and guidelines during all preclinical laboratory and clinic sessions. All mandatory requirements for clinical practice must be met before commencing the joint ORAL11001 and ORAL11004 clinical activity in week 10.

Assessment Tasks

1 In-class Test(s)

Assessment Title
In-Class Test

Task Description

In clinical practice, oral health therapists are expected to have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the anatomical structures and functions of the head and neck and oral cavity. In preparation you will take part in practical learning activities with anatomical models, teeth models, and radiographs, as well as take part in practical activity where you will examine the surface anatomy of the head and neck and oral cavity on your peers. The extra-oral and intra-oral examination, carried out in a clinical setting, is a joint activity with ORAL11001.

The practical assessment of your knowledge is worth 25% of your overall mark. It consists of two in-class tests worth 12.5% each. The first test will take place in week 5. The second test will take place in week 12.

Both tests consist of approximately 20 numbered stations set up around the laboratory. Each test will take approximately 1 hour in duration. Each station will include anatomical models, teeth, charts, photographs or radiographs. You will move from station to station at timed intervals and answer questions at each station. There will be only 1 student at each station at a time. The questions at each station will ask you to correctly name, identify or briefly describe the function of the structure, or identify the blood supply, nerve supply and lymphatics. The questions will not be multiple choice. No textbooks or other written material are allowed into examination room, as this is a closed-book assessment. You will be given an answer sheet on which to write your answers. You will require pens and photo identification.


Assessment Due Date

All students must complete two In-Class tests. The first In-Class test will take place Wednesday 8th April at 1.00pm. The second In-Class test will take place Wednesday 3rd June at 1.00pm. See task description

2 Online Quiz(zes)

Assessment Title
On-Line Quizzes

Task Description

An understanding of the anatomy of the oral cavity, head and neck and the dentitions is essential for the Oral Health Therapist in clinical practice. To develop this knowledge and understanding it is necessary to become familiar with terminology used in the study of dental morphology and head and neck anatomy. Knowledge of terminology and important concepts will be assessed in both on-line quizzes.

  • There will be two separate on-line quizzes to assess your knowledge. Questions include matching and multiple-choice questions.
  • The number of questions and weighting for each quiz is outlined below.
  • You are allowed two attempts on each quiz. It is not compulsory to attempt a second time. The attempt in which you achieve the highest score will be recorded as your final score. Your attempts will be submitted automatically, but no more questions can be answered once the time limit expires.
  • There is a minimum mark required. You must achieve 50% of the cumulative score of both quizzes.
  • No attempts are allowed after the quiz is closed. If you are unable to complete the quiz by the due date, you must apply for an extension before the due date.

The first quiz opens Thursday 26th March 8.00am and closes Thursday 9th April 5.00pm. This quiz tests learning material in weeks 1-4. There are 40 questions (maximum). The time limit expires after 25 minutes. You are allowed two attempts. This quiz is worth 10%.

The second quiz opens Monday 18th May 8.00am and closes Monday 1st June 5.00pm. This quiz tests learning material in weeks 5-10. There are 60 questions (maximum). The time limit expires after 40minutes. You are allowed two attempts. This quiz is worth 15%.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
