Description:

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons typically engage in- and represent the community standard in certain areas of facial trauma, facial deformity correction, reconstructive facial surgery, temporomandibular joint management and surgery, head and neck infections, and management of pathologies. However, the general dental practitioner should be competent in performing basic surgical procedures which commonly occur in their practice settings. Due to anesthetic concerns, past experiences with surgical complications, or lack of training, many general practitioners hesitate to perform basic oral surgery procedures.

This innovative, hands-on course will focus on helping general dentists develop or refine essential skills that are critical for successful performance of oral-surgical procedures. The program includes mini-lectures on oral surgery topics that are relevant to the general practitioner, and a hands-on component using animal models. Faculty experts will demonstrate techniques and then guide participants in improving their own skills. Upon completion, course participants should be more surgically competent and be able to apply these improved skills into everyday patient care with confidence.
