August 23-25, 2019
University of Pennsylvania
Online Program coming soon!
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 3-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.
