ILAGD Mastertrack Presents: Oral Surgery for the General Dentist by Dr. Karl Koerner

On September 27-28, the ILAGD & WIAGD Mastertrack welcomed Dr. Karl Koerner for an excellent presentation on “Oral Surgery for the General Dentist: Faster, Easier, More Predictable.” We had a full class for our 2-day hands-on participation course at Midway Education Center in which the doctors learned how to more easily and quickly do surgical and difficult extractions on specially designed oral surgery models. Many extractions look easy but can quickly become difficult, time consuming, and lead to problems. We reviewed the best techniques and instruments to remove surgical extractions easily and quickly while preserving bone. We covered multiple extractions, alveoplasty, exostosis removal, along with avoiding or managing common surgical complications such as sinus misadventures, excessive bleeding, and tuberosity fractures. The doctors also learned and practiced bone grafting, excisional biopsies, and frenectomies. Many thanks to the sponsors of our program: Midway Dental Supply, PNC Bank, Medco, Hu-Friedy and Garfield Refining. Join us on October 25-26, 2019 for Periodontology & Peri-Implantology: Pathology & Treatment, Similarities and Differences. Go to for more information.
