Minor Oral Surgery
In this component students are trained to manage a minor oral surgery procedure such as a basic extraction. This component is taught over two modules.

The first module is taught in second year and introduces the student to basic principles of surgery and local anaesthesia.

The second module is comprised of theory as well as daily clinical sessions under supervision of qualified dentists and dental therapists. In addition to the clinical sessions, the student is also exposed to community outreach programs like St Wendolins Health Centre and the Phelophepa Health Train. At the end of this module, the student should be clinically competent in managing a patient that requires an extraction.
