By the end of this course, participants will be able to visually build a 3D model of the head and neck starting from the bony skeleton through to muscles, blood vessels, nerves and all the way out to skin layers. A group discussion will facilitate the opportunity to apply this knowledge to clinical considerations related to dental practice, as well as tips and tricks to keep in mind to avoid some clinical complications.
The course consists of four online lectures on Wednesdays 6:30pm – 8:30pm (QLD time) with online weekly quizzes and a final quiz (80% pass mark) before CPD points are awarded.
