Morning Tea, Lunch & Afternoon Tea provided


NB: Delegates must have attended the ADAQ introductory Practical Oral Surgery course prior to registering for this course.

This second stage course builds on the introductory Practical Oral Sugery course, and is intended to assist practitioners with expanding their knowledge and skills in relation to a range of dento-alveolar surgical procedures. The course is designed to further improve surgical confidence in a practical atmosphere. Participants will use specialised replica anatomical models which reliably reflect normal anatomy and allow dissection, bone removal, sectioning and flap repair. A number of complex third molar simulation models will be provided to simulate the range of presenting impacted molar cases.

This second stage course will include a combination of theory and practical exercises including;

  • Complex third molar extractions,
  • Advanced anaesthetic techniques for complex cases, including intra osseous injection techniques,
  • Advanced suturing skills, when and where to use,
  • Oro-antral communications and their management,
  • Advanced management of patients on contemporary anticoagulants,
  • Advanced interpretation of the position of the inferior alveolar nerve in relation to third molars on cone beam images.

Dr Anthony Lynham



After completing Dental and Medical degreees Dr Lynham moved to Maxillofacial training here in Queensland predominantly working at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.  A post surgical fellowship was completed in Switzerland in addition to a Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh.  His main appointment was again to the Royal Brisbane Hospital where he was a member of the hospitals trauma team.
His area of interest was orbital surgery and facial trauma.  Because of an unprecedented rise in this trauma caused by extended alcohol trading hours he led a successful push for reversion of these hours.
This necessitated a move to politics in 2014. Since early 2015 he has been a minister in the Palaszczuk Government.  He still remains active in surgery volunteering for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait community and also in PNG.  He still continues to enjoy research and teaching, juggling this with a busy ministerial career.



Dr Edward Hsu



Dr Edward Hsu obtained his dental qualification with honours from the UQ in 1999 and medical qualification also from UQ in 2003. Following advanced surgical training rotating through most of the major hospitals in Queensland, Dr Hsu obtained the qualification of FRACDS (OMS) and is registered as a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon with both the Australian Dental Board and the Australian Medical Board. Dr Hsu then completed additional surgical fellowship training in one of the busiest tertiary referral hospitals in London, UK.
