  • Participants will have the opportunity to treat 1 of their own patients. Case should be pre-selected by the participant. We strongly encourage you to forward in electronic format, photographs of the case that you intend to treat, in order to make this the best learning experience possible. With pre-approval, the opportunity to treat a second region within the same patient may be possible.

REQUIREMENTS



1 Participants must provide their own patient and a certified dental assistant must accompany you.

*Clinicians who are not licensed in BC can either practice on pig jaws or observe other participants.

2 Equipment and supplies that you must bring:

      • Protective eye-wear for you and your assistant
      • Any illumination or magnification that you currently use for treatment
      • Masks and gloves for you and your assistant
      • Your patient and their chart/radiographs
      • Your prescription pads

3 All other equipment and supplies will be provided for this surgery, including:

      • A list of all instruments that are used for this surgery and post surgical instructions will be provided for reference
      • Complete surgical set-up and all required disposable instruments/materials
      • Anesthetic, blades and sutures will be supplied
      • Post-surgical patient kit/instructions will be provided
      • There is no charge to your patient for materials

CASE SELECTION



    • Ideally, cases should be limited to the anterior dentition or premolars, since molar access will make this a more difficult learning experience.
    • Patients should be in good health or have controlled systemic disease.
    • Ideally, avoid selection of patients on anti-coagulation therapy for this session. ASA should be discontinued 10 days prior to treatment, with consent of the physician.
    • Please identify drug or latex allergies.
    • If your patient has questions about this procedure, please try to answer them prior to the appointment, or contact us so that we may speak to them prior to the appointment.
    • Please plan to follow-up on your patients healing at 10 days and 21 days post-op in your own practice. If healing is slow, additional follow-ups may be required.  We make every effort possible to be available to help you and your patient should adverse events (bleeding emergencies, infection, unusual healing) occur during the early healing phase.
