Things have changed. Our approach to practice and the management of your patients has become significantly more difficult after the Covid-19 pandemic. This course offers a pragmatic and practical approach to managing minor oral surgery within the confines imposed on you in the Post Covid World. Safe and thorough assessment is the key to avoid unnecessary surgery and associated AGPs and when AGPs are necessary, how to manage the surgical task effectively and safely. This hybrid course introduces delegates to a unique Face-to-Face and hands-on experience with senior Teaching Faculty of the Dental Faculty of RCSI in our state-of-the-art clinical laboratory facilities. Delegates will have access to our bespoke on-line preparatory component, which they can study at their leisure in advance to prepares them for the hands-on component. Both components are included in the registration fee. Demand for places is normally high so we recommend early booking.
