I am looking for a good surgical book for the general dentist, mostly focusing on impacted 3rds surgical extractions.

Anyone know of any? all the ones on amazon don't have sufficient reviews.

May I suggest the following? An excellent resource for all of you 3rds neophytes.

"Exodontia: With a Chapter on Dental Malpractice Jurisprudence"
1951
by Max Hillel Feldman

An informative read!!

Hands on experience with someone experienced in the procedure is far more useful.

I swear, when I retire, I'm going back to law school. Easy money in our field.

May I suggest an OMS residency for proper training in impacted third molar removal.

When you have a complication and/or a suit against you they will hold you to the standard of OMFS, I hope your experience is more than "I read this book on Amazon."

When it comes to taking out difficult 3rd Molars,,,,, you need guided experience. No book can walk you through how to do things. knowing when and where you can make things a mess and knowing when you can or could cause permant paralyisis of of the mandibular nerve are big.... I am not an OS. Just saying,,,,, tread lightly in doing that stuff.

I'll give you thirty plus years of experience as a general dentist. Stick to flip outs and let the OMFS deal with all the rest.
