Leiðbeinandi: Burjor Langdana

This hands on workshop deals with preventing , diagnosing and managing dental issues in an austere environment. Dental Pain accounts for more than 16 % of all Medivacs. Dental pain can be very debilitating. Preventing it would be the best solution. But what can you do on an expedition when you are faced with it. You would be totally outside your comfort zone . Treatment when properly done could give you a simple rapid solution.

This workshop has been running for the last 13 years. We have constantly adapted and fine tuned it based on questions, experiences, situations that medics have faced . We have excelled at this workshop by consistently keeping it hands on, simplified , step by step training .

At the end of this workshop you will be able to give Local Anaesthesia in the mouth, do a dental filling , place a dental splint, save a tooth that’s been knocked out, do a simple extraction and finally incise and drain a dental abscess.
