Welcome to Oral Pathology, Radiology & Medicine!

The department was integrated in 1975 from the previous three divisions of oral pathology, oral radiology and oral diagnosis under the leadership of Dr. Gilbert E. Lilly. The current departmental name was adopted in 1992. Pharmaceutical Services under the direction of Professor Karen Baker was added to the department in 2000.

The Department of Oral Pathology, Radiology and Medicine has significant diversity in curricular responsibility which is reflected in our faculty. The Department currently has two licensed pharmacists with advanced training in clinical therapeutics; three experienced generalist dentists, one with an additional degree in nursing with over ten years in private practice, and two with contemporary training in large hospital-based GPR programs; two Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists, three Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists, and one Board Qualified Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologist who also completed a hospital based GPR and recently managed patients in our Center for Clinical Research. This diversity is clearly a strength of OPRM.
