This 14-hour course will review and reinforce your knowledge of third molar surgery while introducing you to information from two instructors with over 75 years of combined clinical experience. The course includes a combination of didactic material, video clips and literature reviews. You will perform several procedures on life-like dentoform models. The mandibular model surgery will include a mesioangular, horizontal, distoangular and a vertical impaction with a coronectomy. The maxillary model surgery will include both a vertical and a mesioangular impaction.

The course will begin with 2 Zoom sessions (3 hours each, didactic). The 8-hour hands-on model surgery experience will be offered both in-person in Dallas, Texas or via Zoom.

Rent a handpiece from KCSI. After the course is completed, you must return the handpiece at your own expense. A return shipping label is not included.
