 Oral Surgery

Faster, Easier, More Predictable

The Illinois Academy of General Dentistry, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Academy of General Dentistry, are pleased to present this program leading to Mastership certification in the Academy. To complete the Mastership Program, candidates must enroll for 600 hours of continuing education, 400 of which must be of participatory nature.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Karl Koerner

Dr. Koerner is an Associate Professor of Oral Surgery at Roseman University of Health Sciences, College of Dental Medicine in Utah.  He has presented hundreds of didactic and participation oral surgery courses in the US and
around the world. Though not an oral surgeon, Dr. Koerner received surgery training in the US Army, where he completed a general practice residency. Dr. Koerner has had many dental publications.

 Course Description:

Many extractions look easy but can quickly become difficult, time consuming, and lead to problems. We will review the best techniques and instruments to remove surgical extractions  easily and quickly while preserving bone. We will also cover multiple extractions, alveoplasty, exostosis removal, along with avoiding or managing common surgical complications such as sinus misadventures, excessive bleeding, and tuberosity fractures. Also included, as time permits: bone grafting, excisional biopsies, and other related topics.

Course Objectives:

Each participant will learn:
• To more easily and quickly do “surgical”or difficult extractions
• To be more proficient at ridge prepararation for dentures following multiple extractions
• To prevent and/or manage complications that can occur during oral surgery
• To perform predictable socket bone grafting
• Common special needs will be addressed. Strategies will be discussed to facilitate treatment to reach those treatment objectives.
