Course Description

Reviewing principles and learning the latest in oral surgery can be valuable for the general dentist, regardless of your scope of practice. Whether you perform dentoalveolar procedures in your office or routinely refer to oral & maxillofacial surgeons in your community, this course will review the key pearls and pitfalls you need to know to be up to date, including fundamentals of surgical technique, potential complications, and updates in managing common problems we encounter on a regular basis. Topics reviewed will include dental extractions, infections, and medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ).
