Dr. Lawrence I. Gaum, F.A.D.S.A., F.I.C.D.
This course is designed for the general practitioner who wishes to perform his/her own surgery and avoid referring most cases to the OMFS specialist. Dr. Gaum will present step-by-step numerous minor surgical procedures that a general practitioner can and WILL confidently perform after taking this seminar. The course will demonstrate techniques that he has successfully been using, updating and teaching for over 30 years. It is important to emphasize this seminar DOES NOT present major maxillofacial surgery that is of no practical or clinical value to the general practitioner. The surgical procedures taught are the "bread and butter" variety, allowing the participants to refine and update all surgical skills that CAN actually be applied in their practices. These procedures will no longer be complicated, nor a mystery.
Course Objectives -- upon completion of this course, attendees will have a better understanding of:
• The proper examination, assessment and preparation of the patient.
• What to do when things go wrong and fail.
• The "ART" mandibular block.
• Surgical removal of impacted and erupted teeth, cysts, hyperplastic tissue and tori.
• Post op treatment of dry socket.
