The course aims to reinforce the knowledge and skills of participating physicians in case evaluation and orthognathic surgical procedures; to enable them to gain a more self-confident approach towards their patients; To contribute to minimizing the risk of errors in the treatment processes.

This course, which is dedicated to maxillofacial surgeons and/or PhD students who are continuing their education in this field, offers the participants a unique opportunity and experience to move their skills to upper levels.


In order to become a more confident surgeon, you will learn different techniques and approaches from one of the most experienced names in this field, Dr Mustafa Sancar Ataç. In addition to standard procedures, tips and tricks for dealing with complications will be shared by our teachers throughout the course.

In the course, Orthodontist Dr Emre Cakir accompanies Prof Dr Mustafa Sancar Ataç and conveys his knowledge of approaching these cases from an orthodontic point of view to the participating physicians.


  • Dento-Maxillofacial assessments in Orthognathic Surgery
  • Surgical Anatomy & Radiology for Upper and Lower Jaws

  • Orthognathic Surgery Applications in the Upper Jaw on the Cadaver: Le Fort, Segmental Osteotomies.
  • Orthognathic Surgery Applications in the Lower Jaw on the Cadaver: Ramus, Jaw Tip, Segmental Osteotomies


You will be thought theoretically in the first day of the course.  The second day is full of hands-on practice in the anatomy lab. After a very short theoretical introduction of the surgical procedure by the lecturers you can monitor the live surgery on the flat screen close to you. You accompany each detail in “real-time”, simulating a close 1:1 reality on your “patient”.

After the teaching and the instruction, you will perform the surgical training on the fresh skull, guided by us, step by step. Two doctors are assigned to one fresh (not embalmed) skull, and a well-trained team is always around you to help and assist.


The course is delivered in Turkish and translated into English by our interpreter simultaneously. We work with London-based translators who are very experienced in dentistry courses.
