While many extractions could look easy, they can soon become difficult and lead to complications. This is rare opportunity for you to learn,, how to make exodontia more predictable, enjoyable and routine in your office. This course will review the best techniques and instruments used in oral surgery to help make surgery, including surgical extractions, predictable and efficient - while conserving adjacent anatomical structures.  Practitioners will be able to perform exodontia, flaps and other surgical techniques with greater confidence and less stress. Learning to maximize efficiency at the office, participants will provide a broader scope of dental care to patients. 

The course will cover many oral surgery subjects, avoiding complications, routine exodontia, surgical removal of teeth, bleeding prevention/management, alveloplasty after multiple extractions, appropriate preparation and armamentarium, case selection and recommendations for a referral.
