          Course Objectives:

          Any odontogenic infections or dental infection that start in the teeth and associated oral tissue can have significant consequences if they spread to vital structures, tissue, or organs.  Occasionally, odontogenic infection does not stay as a localized lesion but can spread to the paranasal sinuses or can be spread by the vascular system, lymphatic system, or spaces in the head and neck.

          Upon successful completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

          Trace the routes of odontogenic infection in the head and neck region on a diagram, skull, and patient
           
          Discuss the complications that can occur with the spread of odontogenic infection in the head and neck region
           
          Discuss the aging process, including that which occurs in the oral cavity
           
          Discuss the prevention of the spread of odontogenic infection during patient dental care
             
          Integrate an understanding of the anatomic considerations for the spread of odontogenic infection into clinical dental practice
