The ETMR course is a live patient observation course held in San Jose, CA. Dr. Wayland has removed more than 25,000 full bony impacted third molars with oral and IV sedation. 25 offices in the San Francisco Bay Area use his services. He is offering a live surgery day for dentists to observe early third molar removal. A small class size and procedure manual ensure that you will learn and your questions will be answered.

The course is informal. It is limited to 10 participants. All surgery is recorded with an HD camera. Surgical procedures can be seen with direct vision or on monitors. Everyone will have ample opportunity to see the surgical procedures and have their questions answered. Procedures are explained during surgery and participants are encouraged to interact with the instructor. Dr. Wayland will treat four patients and remove up to 16 full bony impactions. The identical procedures are repeated for all four patients.

You will see his surgical drill, burs, sutures, instrument setup including the Weider retractor and 46 R and how to use them, introduction to IV sedation, throat pack, consent forms/informed consent, documentation, Rx, flap design and suturing, and much more. Lecture covers case selection, possible complications, treatment, and when to refer.

The surgical principles used for full bony impactions can be applied to other extractions.
