Under the guidance and mentorship of the Extraction Academy faculty, dentists from around the world can participate in a hands-on, live patient extraction course. The faculty includes a dentist/pharmacologist, a periodontists, two oral surgeons and three general practitioners. During the two-day live surgical sessions (next on Sept. 12-13 in Los Angeles, 26 C.E. series), doctors can take their clinical and surgical skills to the next level.

Attendees will be provided with access to the Extraction Academy’s online library for the didactic portion of the series (10 C.E.), which they can review at their own convenience, prior or after the live surgical sessions.

The live surgical sessions are uniquely designed to include brief morning lectures and discuss different approaches to successful exodontia procedures, prior to prescreened surgical cases, each day.

The comprehensive program will include clinical preparation, overview of head and neck anatomy, pharmacology, medical emergencies, informed consent policies and protocols, risk management, suturing techniques, management of complications and postoperative care.

The late morning and afternoon interactive sessions are supplemented by doctors assisting in shoulder-to-shoulder surgeries and video demonstrations. The faculty and presenters will engage with questions, clinical cases and input from the audience, throughout each day.

The course is designed to teach minimally traumatic tooth extractions, focusing on alveolar ridge preservation, whenever and wherever possible. Participants will learn everything from single-, multiple-, full-mouth to impacted teeth extractions. The presenters will touch upon IV sedation, guided-bone regeneration (GBR) and tips and tricks. Students and faculty will also perform advanced procedures such as root tip extractions, wisdom teeth, calcified teeth, sinus precautions or involvement, infected teeth and exposing teeth for orthodontic treatment.

The program will include concierge service and hotel accommodations for distant travelers, visa application invitations for international doctors, breakfast, lunch and a group dinner. All instruments and materials will be provided. California licensure is not required. Any dentist with a desire to increase his or her knowledge in oral surgery is welcome. Students with a California license can perform surgeries with the instructors.

The Extraction Academy specializes in continuing education workshops and lectures for general dentists, periodontists, oral implantologists, oral surgeons and endodontists as a multidisciplinary approach. Extraction Academy courses are designed around practical hands-on lectures. Courses start with extraction basics and progress to advanced techniques. The learning will enable attendees to go back to their office and immediately implement the techniques.
