This course is under the direction of Thomas G. Wiedemann, MD, Ph.D., DDS, Clinical Associate Professor and full-time faculty at New York University, College of Dentistry, Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Prof. Wiedemann´s career consists of more than 25 years of surgical and educational experience in an academic setting and successfully operating a private practice providing the full spectrum of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Implant Dentistry. He has special interests in dental emergency care, pain management, minimally invasive surgical strategies, and techniques of the full scope of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. He has acquired extensive expertise in implant surgery with multiple implant systems since 1995. He is well versed in innovative concepts of alveolar ridge augmentation and reconstruction and soft tissue regeneration, CBCT guided, and piezo surgery. He is the author of many publications, a speaker at national and international conferences on oral surgery and implantology-related topics, and serves on the editorial board of several renowned and peer-reviewed scientific journals.

This action-packed extraction course, with two hands-on sessions and lectures, will provide a step-by-step blueprint for successful atraumatic extraction techniques with hand instruments and piezoelectric devices as wells as appropriate flap designs for surgical extraction procedures. The associated webinar will provide pre-op patient evaluation and safe patient selection and you will leave prepared to return to your practice and immediately provide these new techniques and procedures.
You will learn how to select and demonstrate proficient use of the appropriate armamentarium (Periotomes, Proximators, Apical Retention Forceps, Piezotomes vs. conventional instruments) in order to remove and section teeth as well as determine and demonstrate case-appropriate basic and advanced suturing techniques.
The course has been carefully designed to integrate didactic, and visual aides, and extensive hands-on attendee participation with a wide range of different exodontia and bone graft procedures (GBR, socket grafts) for each individual patient.


  • Understand and apply practical working knowledge in non-surgical and surgical techniques used in modern exodontia
  • Apply and select specific instruments for minimally invasive and alveolar ridge-protecting extraction procedures to facilitate immediate dental implant placement
  • Manage common real-life complications associated with tooth extractions
  • Analyze and anticipate surgical challenges in tooth extractions
  • Feel comfortable in risk assessment in medically compromised patients requiring tooth extractions
  • Perform current simple protocols of GBR, including socket preservation, as related to pre-implantological extractions
  • Perform other frequent and common oral surgery procedures in the general dental practice
  • Allow participants to refine and update all surgical skills
