This hands-on course is designed for dentists with limited oral surgery experience, looking to improve their confidence.

ORAL SURGERY SERIES OVERVIEW

The Oral Surgery series of courses consist of 3 Model based modules and a 2-day Cadaver based module, designed to consolidate undergraduate and early career experience in Exodontia and Minor Oral Surgery knowledge and techniques for the General Dental Practitioner.

The Course will provide updated review of important aspects of patient management required to safely carry out Exodontia and Minor Oral Surgery procedures in the General Dental Practice Setting.

The Course will provide a review of potential complications which may arise when carrying out Exodontia and Minor Oral Surgery procedures in the General Dental Practice Setting to assist attendees in case selection and communication with their patients.
