About the Course 
This course addresses common complications associated with oral surgical procedures and outlines the evidence-based methods to prevent, minimize, or manage them.

Proper techniques of postoperative pain or infection control may also facilitate the healing process and reduce both postoperative complications for patients and stress for practitioners. This basic-level course for dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants will strengthen the dental team’s ability to identify common complications associated with oral surgery procedures and minimize, manage, and treat postoperative complications. 

Course Objectives 
1. Identify common complications associated with oral surgery procedures. 
2. Discuss methods to minimize, manage, and treat postoperative complications.
