Unparalleled Learning Opportunity

The Melbourne Oral Surgery Cadaver Course takes place on the 21st and 22nd of October, 2023, at VascuLab Melbourne, located at 30 Royal Parade, Parkville VIC 3052, Australia.

This two-day intensive course focuses on socket grafting, an essential skill for dentists aiming to provide comprehensive care to their extraction patients. What sets this course apart is the hands-on experience it offers with human cadavers, providing a level of training that plastic models or simulations simply can't match.

What You'll Learn

Throughout the course, you'll cover a wide range of topics and surgical techniques, including:

1. Raising Full Thickness Flaps:

Learn how to properly raise full-thickness flaps for various surgical procedures. You'll have the opportunity to practice different flap designs and techniques.

2. Suturing Techniques:

Master the art of suturing with expert guidance. Suturing is a fundamental skill in oral surgery, and you'll have the chance to refine your technique.

3. Bone Guttering Techniques:

Explore bone guttering techniques that are essential for specific procedures such as preparing for dental implants, tooth extractions and treating periodontal disease, to name a few.

4. Atraumatic Extractions:

Discover how to perform atraumatic extractions to minimise tissue damage and improve patient outcomes. Atraumatic extractions aim to preserve the surrounding bone tissue that supports the teeth. The procedure is performed carefully to minimise damage to the gums, connective tissues, and neighbouring teeth. This reduces post-operative discomfort, swelling, and the risk of complications.

5. Socket Grafting:

Gain insights into socket grafting for ridge preservation, a skill in high demand as more patients opt for implant replacements. The extraction socket, the space left in the jaw after a tooth is removed, is managed with care. Efforts are made to preserve the natural contours and architecture of the socket to facilitate healing and potential future restorations.

The Importance of Hands-On Learning

Working on human specimens in a laboratory environment offers a unique and invaluable experience. You'll gain a deep understanding of dental procedures in a way that traditional methods, such as plastic models or pig jaws, can't replicate. This hands-on approach allows you to practice and refine your skills in a controlled setting, providing the confidence and expertise needed to excel in real-world dental practice.

Earning CPD Points and Upskilling

The Melbourne Oral Surgery Cadaver Course offers 14 CPD points, which are essential for annual dentistry registration. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is crucial for dentists to stay current with industry advancements and maintain their professional competence. This course not only enhances your skills but also helps you fulfil your CPD requirements.
