Episode Run Time: 00:45:21
Today, I talk to Dr. Nu Dastaran, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Melbourne. Originally from London, she graduated with a medical degree from the University of Bristol. Through exposure to and her interest in head and neck anatomy Dr. Dastaran decided to start the journey towards becoming an OMFS. She completed her OMFS training in Australia and has been practicing as an OMFS for 5 years now.
In this second episode of the dental implant audio residency series, we talk about the surgical aspects of implant dentistry. Dr. Nu Dastaran details her workflow from patient assessment, surgery planning, flap design, down to the actual implant procedure. We also discuss her preference for single vs two stage implant procedures and freehand vs guided placements.
