A Word from the Chairmen
Thank you for your interest in the ASMS Basic Maxillofacial Principles and Techniques Course. We are proud to be part of this dynamic educational program jointly sponsored by the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons, and the Maxillofacial Surgeons Foundation.

We hope you enjoy the course.

Co-Chairs: Gaby Doumit, MD; Don Mackay, MD; Joseph Losee, MD; DDS, Jesse Taylor, MD

Local Host: Joseph Serletti, MD

Intended Audience
This course is appropriate for all practicing plastic surgeons, residents and other physicians interested in a greater understanding of basic maxillofacial principles and techniques.

This course is a three-day program consisting of lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions. The goal of this course is to introduce the principles of maxillofacial surgery, with a unique emphasis on the topics of dental anatomy, occlusion, dental impressions, orthodontics and prosthodontics, orthognathic surgery and maxillofacial trauma. Over half of the course is devoted to unique “hands-on laboratories” to teach plastic surgeons the basics of taking impressions and working with dental models, cephalometric analysis, osteotomies and plating techniques. All plastic surgeons should consider taking this course as part of their core curriculum in maxillofacial surgery.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the anatomy of the head and neck area, especially as related to dental aspects of the oral cavity.
  • Take impressions, construct and mount dental models and make acrylic splints.
  • Implement current concepts in diagnosis and treatment of facial fractures.
  • Incorporate cephalometric prediction tracings and application of orthognathic principles and techniques to diagnose and treat congenital and post-traumatic deformities in their practices.
  • Incorporate use of bone cutting equipment and rigid fixation in maxillofacial surgery in their practices.
