Oral surgery is the application of anatomy, pathology, physiology and pharmacology. It can often be confronting in the general dental setting due to the complexity of patient histories and the range of treatment needed.

This program is an interactive two day course developed for dental practitioners, including recent graduates, presented by Specialist Oral Surgeon, Dr Mark Atkinson. It is suitable for dental practitioners of all experience levels wanting to improve their confidence and skills in surgical exodontia.

The primary aim of this course is to develop the skills of general dental practitioners in applying an appropriate surgical plan in their exodontia cases to ensure predictable outcomes in daily practice.

The course spans two full days which include didactic lectures and intensive hands-on training. Participants will be among the first dentists in the world to use an advanced 3D printed oral surgery model.

The upper and lower extraction models have been manufactured using actual patient CBCT and intra-oral digital scan data. The models provide a realistic feeling of detachment of the periodontal ligaments, movement of teeth and density of bone during surgical exodontia training.
