Open Wide...

We've had a few lectures in our Physical Diagnosis class in the past week. The first year Oral Surgery residents (dentists) are required to attend these classes since they have no real experiences in physical diagnosis outside of staring into the mouths of patients. I can see some of the material being useful for the general assessment of a patient, especially the head and neck portions of the exam!

What I don't see is how the GU, breast and rectal exams have ANYTHING to do with oral surgery...it gives "Open wide" a whole new meaning
