This program is Category 2
(CE Points: 14)

When it comes to achieving success in clinical dentistry, everyone knows the importance of offering all treatment options in your clinic setting and retaining all the “valuable” work. Now is the time to focus on enhancing your skills and start engaging some of the cases you referred out earlier. 

This course is redesigned with a hybrid theory-practical continuum component as we focus on giving participants the maximum amount of hands-on training we could fit into a two-day course. The result is a program that gives participants the opportunity to raise flaps, remove fractured multi-rooted teeth, remove submerged roots, learn to preserve and enhance proposed implant sites with GBR, and select appropriate suturing materials and techniques.

What Is Mastering the Basics of Surgery?

Designed with the general dentists in mind, this course will take you through all the techniques you need to do complicated extractions and perform other types of minor oral surgery. From raising flaps and removing bone to sectioning and removing teeth, this course will give you an immediate jump in skill level when managing difficult extractions and soft tissue.

With the benefit of expert instruction—Two full days of practice on pig mandibles, peer discussion, concise lectures, and demos and post-course support—you will leave this course with the practical tools to do atraumatic extractions for most of the difficult scenarios.

All demonstrations will be done on a surgical operating microscope and relayed live on the lecture theatre screens.
