Comments by the Originator and Presenter of this course: Dr Stuart Orton-Jones

I was stimulated to devise this course after becoming frustrated by several anatomy courses I attended in Europe and the United States. Too much time was spent on irrelevant information and irrelevant dissection of structures I was not interested in. I therefore went to the Bristol Dissection Department and dissected what I wanted to see and did oral surgery implant procedures that I wanted to do. I then devised this course and conducted it in the United Kingdom and in the United States. The response from participants has been amazing.

“The Practical Surgery, Implantology and Applied Anatomy Dissection Course is one of the best organised and most thorough that I have ever taken. Everything is directly applicable. The value of this course is immeasurable”


About this course

This is a course that offers the opportunity to perform procedures on fresh cadavers, just like the real thing. No formalin smell or stiff tissue as with preserved cadavers but soft tissue that can be retracted and dissected revealing some of the structures that you normally do not wish to see but know are there, somewhere.

This is not a course run by anatomists where you spend unnecessary time dissecting out fascial planes and structures that are irrelevant to everyday dentistry.

Everything is relevant to everyday dentistry.
