Course Description:  Do you find oral surgical procedures can stress or challenge you?  If the answer is YES, or you just want to compare and evaluate what you already know, then you will find this session useful.  A comprehensive attempt to provide you with knowledge that you will be able to put into practice immediately on your return to your practice with your next extraction patient.  This is a sharing of technique and knowledge from pre-operative phase to post-operative complications.  This presentation will help dentists identify and avoid those stressful “Oh no, I wish I hadn’t started this” oral surgery moments.
