The knowledge of key anatomical structures allows safe, predictable and successful outcomes. This course will give the clinician renewed confidence in identifying both hard and soft tissues available for reconstructive techniques, patient evaluation and local anesthesia.

The clinician will be guided by volumetric radiography, hands-on cadaver specimens and interactive 3-D dissection.

In particular, the clinician will learn low to high risk zones for circulation, neurology and bony anatomy.

Guided tour of:
  • Infratemporal fossa
  • Submandibular region
  • Oral cavity proper
Identification of critical landmarks for:
