It sounds like a weird question to ask, but we’re serious. With our hands-on dissection course, you can dissect your own cadaver head. This is helpful because hands-on learning is one of the best ways to remember how to perform a procedure and we want to make sure you are learning in the best way possible. But spaces are limited if you want to join us May 6-7, so sign up today!
What will be discussed?
During this hands-on dissection course, we will be covering a lot. In particular, dissection of the different structures will include:
- Pharyngeal muscles.
- Palate and soft palate.
- Maxillary sinus and pterygopalatine fossa.
- Muscles of facial expression and facial nerve.
- Neck, carotid artery and maxilliary artery.
- Infraorbital and mental nerves.
- Muscles of mastication.
- Temporomandibular joint.
- Inferior alveolar nerve.
- And more!
What are the course objectives?
There’s a lot to learn in general, but we will focus on the following areas during our two days together:
- Visualization of the TM joint’s anatomy and observe the motion of the condyle and the disc.
- Observation of actual obstruction of the airway.
- Examination and dissection of the muscles which comprise the airway.
- Each student will have his or her own cadaver to dissect.
- Visualization and observation of injection techniques that are taught in the mini residency program and their anatomical basis.
- Examination, in detail, of the brain to understand the numerous areas which are involved in both pain perception and the complex process of sleep.
- Dissection of structures that contribute to craniofacial pain and temporomandibular disorders.
Join Wesley E. Shankland, DDS, for a two-day course May 6-7 in Atlanta to learn more about dissection. Hurry, though, because spaces are limited!
