The primary objective of teaching clinical biochemistry to undergraduate BDS students is to enable them to comprehend the scientific foundations of biomolecules, even at the molecular level, and guide them towards the practical application of this knowledge in resolving clinical challenges. By imparting a profound understanding of the molecular intricacies of biomolecules, students are equipped with the tools necessary to address complex clinical issues effectively.
In the realm of dental education, biochemistry assumes a pivotal role as it unveils the chemistry underpinning life itself. As a core subject within dental disciplines, it illuminates the critical connections between biochemical reactions and human health maintenance. With numerous intricate biochemical reactions occurring continuously within the body, a grasp of biochemistry becomes imperative. This understanding serves as a gateway for comprehending the essence of dental sciences, ultimately enabling students to navigate the dynamic landscape of dental practice. By focusing on fundamental concepts and their real-world applications, dental students are prepared to approach clinical challenges with a solid foundation of knowledge, propelling them towards becoming skilled dental professionals.
