Cadaver Course


 Wednesday 5th October 2016. 

Newcastle Surgical Training Centre.

Only £399 (for SRRDG members)

This course is a one-day seminar with hands-on experience. It offers the unique opportunity for each participant to review head and neck anatomy pertinent for performing implant, oral and periodontal surgery. The objective of this course is to inform and assist each participant in achieving a higher level of clinical comfort with a range of soft tissue surgical procedures (free gingival grafts and harvesting connective tissue grafts), placement of dental implants, manipulation of surgical flaps and obtaining tension free surgical closure. There will be opportunity to open the maxillary sinus, ridge reduce and place distally angled implants as well as identification of nerves.
