Michael E. Lessin, DDS
Chief/Program Director

This elective is designed to give the student experience in common ambulatory and in-patient oral surgery procedures. Students will gain experience in the management of emergencies through the Emergency Room assignments with the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residents. They will be given the opportunity to observe complex oral surgery procedures to obtain greater understanding of the inter-relationships of oral diseases and systemic diseases and to participate in the perioperative evaluation and management of patients. The student will attend rounds, conferences and seminars and they will also be assigned to the Out-patient Department and to the Operating Room. The student will also participate in selected activities representing a variety of ongoing clinical and didactic programs such as the Departmental Grand Rounds. The student will have regularly scheculed nights and weekends on call.
