Oral Surgery for GDP's at the Delta Academy Bristol


Saturday 20th February 2021

This course aims to review basic exodontia techniques and introduce the bone preserving techniques which should be at the forefront of clinical practice.

Learning Objectives

Oral surgery is an essential part of the General Dental Practitioners repertoire. We are seeing an ever-increasing ageing population with multiple comorbidities and coupled with high expectations of treatment.


Atraumatic and bone preserving exodontia is critical to healing and rehabilitation of patients. This course aims to review basic exodontia techniques and introduce the bone preserving techniques which should be at the forefront of clinical practice; including the use of piezoelectric surgery to ensure rapid and predictable healing.


Consent, medical considerations and novel techniques such as PRF will also be discussed.

Course Aim
With a combination of didactic teaching, case selection, discussions and a practical hands-on element on animal tissue candidates will have the opportunity to employ the atraumatic and bone preserving extraction techniques.

This will allow candidates to have a better understanding of the procedures and be able to introduce them to their clinical practice.

Referral of appropriate patients and recognition/awareness of ones limitations will be discussed.
