23 April 2021


Book Now

  • We are delighted to announce that the first Glasgow Oral Surgery Symposium will be delivered digitally. The programme, postponed from April 2020 has been updated to reflect the key contemporary issues in Oral Surgery and will be delivered virtually over 1 engaging and interactive day.

    For ease and convenience, the programme can be accessed live or on-demand for up to three weeks after the event, and will offer up to 6 CPDA credits.

    Management of cysts of the jaws takes place at various oral health care settings including primary, secondary, tertiary care (although this is rare). A patient journey commonly involves General Dental Practitioners, Endodontists, Dental and Maxillofacial Radiologists, Oral/OMF Surgeons, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists and Orthodontists to aid the developing teeth.

    For this symposium we have gathered seven specialists nationwide, who will present strategies on current management to include diagnosis, investigations, surgical advances, bone preservation and minimising complications. Lectures will cover the use of advance imaging in diagnosis, surgical planning in order to preserve the natural anatomy and to improve outcomes. The presentations will also aim to improve the understanding of the pathology amongst clinicians to choose the appropriate treatment option and subsequent follow-up.


    The aims of this symposium are to understand the role of advanced imaging in cysts of the maxillofacial skeleton, to examine the relevance of pathogenesis in management of cysts, to appreciate the rationale behind various treatment options of cysts and to recognise the importance of patient compliance.


    • To be able to discuss differential diagnosis for large lesions of the maxillofacial skeleton
    • To understand the role of aetiology, pathogenesis and systemic factors in the behaviour of cysts
    • Be aware of how to prepare the patient for anticipated surgical outcome
    • To recognise available radical and conservative management strategies for cysts
