WSS does not use typodonts, pig jaws, or cadavers. All third molar training is done with live patients.
WSS is not an implant training company that offers third molar courses. We only teach exodontia and sedation. The WSS Impaction Course is the ORIGINAL Hands-0n Live Patient Impaction Course. If you want to learn how to place implants, take an implant course. If you want to learn how to efficiently, predictably, and safely remove impacted third molars, take the WSS Impaction Course directed by the author of “Impacted Third Molars”.
Participants attend a lecture and observe Dr. Hendrickson removing 24 impacted third molars with a certified nurse anesthetist Friday morning. Dr. Wayland will remove an additional 8 impactions and provide IV Sedation for patients Friday afternoon. Saturday and Sunday are reserved for hands-on live patient treatment. Dentists work in pairs; one assisting and one treating. You are guaranteed 8 impacted third molars. A WSS faculty member will always be in the operatory with you. The 1:1 patient instructor ratio promotes dialogue and learning. All patients are sedated orally.
Each patient’s panoramic x-ray is reviewed after treatment. Participants discuss treatment and interact with WSS faculty.
You will learn efficient flap design, suturing, radiographic markers, how to use a straight surgical drill, the bur depth gauge, how to avoid nerve injury, the buccal approach, 7-step mandibular third molar removal, and more.
Dr. Heath Hendrickson, the owner of Wisdom Teeth Only has removed more than 80,000 third molars. Dr. John Wayland has removed more than 25,000 impactions and literally wrote the book “Impacted Third Molars” published by John Wiley and Sons. Wiley’s revenue in 2016 was 1.8 billion USD. This hardcover, comprehensive book is free to every Impaction Course participant
