"Atraumatic Extractions for the GP" (6 CEs)
Presented by Steven Rasner, DMD, MAGD

Course Synopsis:
Practitioners who strive to maintain independence from the toxic tentacles of third party insurance must develop skill sets that motivate patients to go out of network to seek their care. This class is part of a series designed to enable the GP to do just that. This course will focus on atraumatic tooth removal.

Is it really possible to master in one day the surgical procedures you’re currently referring out. The answer is a resounding YES. This action-packed class will provide a step by step blueprint for success at a wide array of surgical procedures. In his warm and witty way, Dr. Rasner will cover everything from pre-op patient preparation to scheduling to post-op instructions, all in a comfortable, question-inviting atmosphere.

This course has been carefully designed for maximum learning by integrating didactic and audio/visual aides. You will leave ready to return to your practice, start providing these procedures, and keep more production in-house.

Participants will learn:
• Safe patient selection and avoiding red flags
• Case presentation and fees
• Pre- and post-op pharmacology
• New, predictable, and safe enteral sedation protocol
• Biology of angiogenesis
• Technique for atraumatic extractions (all possibilities except 3rd molars)
• Socket preservation: the ideal cocktail
• Grafting of sockets (including use of allografts, membranes and tac gun)
• Required armamentarium for predictable outcomes
• Suturing techniques: interrupted, continuous, horizontal & vertical mattress


Panel of guests will provide updates and important information for the dental team to include ND Board of Dental Examiners, ND Board of Pharmacy (Prescriber Report Card), ND Dental Foundation (Dental Assistant Reimbursement Grant), ND Primary Care Office (Loan Repayment Program), ND Medicaid Office, Mission of Mercy May 2020, ND Health Information Network (PDMP and MIPS), ND Oral Health Department (Opioid Survey and Amalgam Rule Compliance effective July 2020), and Seal!ND.
