Dentists looking to roll up their sleeves and take their skills to the next level can sign up for cadaver workshops being offered at SmileCon.
Two of those workshops are Socket Graft and Ridge Preservation — Cadaver Workshop and The Anatomy of Local Anesthesia: Human Cadaver Dissection.
Socket Graft and Ridge Preservation will take place from 2-5 p.m. Oct. 11 in Lagoon G at the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center. Led by Jon B. Suzuki, D.D.S., Ph.D., professor at the University of Maryland, University of Washington and Nova Southeastern University, the workshop will combine instruction, demonstration and hands-on activities to teach participants the basic principles of bone augmentation surgery, in conjunction with extractions, for private practice.

The course also includes a two-hour prerequisite online lecture.
