1. The Basic Examination and Anesthetic Instruments

1-6. THE ORAL EXAMINATION DIAGNOSIS SERVICE

The oral examination and diagnosis service of a dental clinic usually sees the patient first, either for initial dental examination or for expedient or emergency treatment. Since radiographs are needed for most examinations to make an accurate diagnosis, the oral examination and diagnosis and radio- graphic services are often combined. The oral diagnostician in developing treatment plans will often consult dentist
s in the other dental specialties and medical officers in certain medical specialties. He may use the medical laboratory and the medical radiographic section for pathological, bacteriological, cytological, or other medical diagnostic methods to develop the best treatment plan.
