Let Dr. Karl Koerner help you go from where you are to where you want to be with your surgical expertise. Basic dento-alveolar surgery (such as extractions related procedures) can be very rewarding and satisfying. He teaches the basics and beyond to enable you to serve patients safely and competently.
From Dr. Koerner:
"Oral Surgery Services provides education for dentists both online and in person through lectures and hands-on workshops. Depending on the institution and setting, participant groups can range in size from 20 to 1000 people.
"Objectives for instruction include enabling dentists to complete surgeries quickly, predictably, safely, and with minimal bone removal. Information related to exodontia, such as anatomy and avoiding or managing complications, is also presented. My curriculum vitae is available by request for your review. Oral Surgery Services was founded to provide quality oral surgery treatment to patients and quality oral surgery education to practicing clinicians.
"For many years I have balanced a dental practice with teaching. Along the way it has been rewarding to have published over 25 professional articles on exodontia and related subjects. I have had the opportunity to author or co-author four oral surgery texts (some translated into foreign languages) and make several surgery DVDs with the Academy of General Dentistry and with Dr. Gordon Christensen’s Practical Clinical Courses. Each year I speak 25-30 times throughout the U.S. and abroad.
"Since 2007, I have enjoyed organizing 15 dental/medical humanitarian trips to China — working in the cities of Suqian, Guilin, and Xian. Treatment is provided to those in need. Along with treatment, we enjoy holding exchanges with local dentists to share dental knowledge and ideas that improve the quality of care on both sides of the Pacific. This has enabled many participants to make life-long friends from a different location and culture along with having experiences that are uplifting and even life-changing.
"Over the years, I have had the opportunities as a general dentist to treat over 20,000 impacted third molar patients along with placing several thousand implants and doing many ridge preservation/augmentation procedures. My comfort level with surgery is because of having received excellent training and experience in the U.S. military. It is my desire to share as much of this knowledge as possible with others who want to broaden their own level of expertise. "
