Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is taught as a separate subject in most dental schools in North America even though the division may be part of another larger department. Here is a list of the common departments that have Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology as a division under them:
|Department of Diagnostic Sciences
Department of Oral Medicine
Department of Oral Surgery
Department of General Dentistry
Department of General and Restorative Dentistry
Department of Periodontics
Department of Infection and Immunity
Since Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is an ADA recognized dental specialty, although the curricular guidelines for the post graduate program are clearly set, the curricular guidelines for the predoctoral program are not uniform. AAOMR will try and formulate common curricular guidelines for predoctoral program that can be easily adapted by any School or program tailored to their needs.
