This book provides oral and maxillofacial surgeons with an operative report dictation for the most common procedures that Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons perform. The text is designed as a portable resource to help guide the practicing surgeon on the core of oral and maxillofacial surgery: dentoalveolar, orthogathic, pathology, TMJ, cosmetic surgery, and trauma and reconstruction. For each procedure, a list of common indications is given, followed by a list of essential steps and note these variations, introducing a list that is intended to prompt the surgeon for particular things to note and dictate within the template. Then, a list of possible complications that are typically associated with the particular procedure follows, and ends with a template for operative dictation. Designed to serve as a source of model operative dictations that may be individualized, Operative Dictations in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is intended to assist the surgeon in being better prepared when entering the operating room.?
