Dr. John WaylandThank you for visiting my website. In 1983 I took an IV sedation course from Dr. Stanley Malamed at USC School of Dentistry. As you may know, Dr. Malamed is one of the world’s foremost authorities on sedation in dentistry. Studying with him was intended to help me in removing impacted third molars and placing implants. Over the last 30 years I have removed more than 25,000 impacted third molars and completed more than 4,000 sedations.

In 1999 I sold my general dentistry practice. The new owner asked me to help him with third molar surgery. A few of my dentist friends heard about this arrangement and asked me if I could provide the same service for them. Today I provide mobile early third molar removal services for 37 offices in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I have learned that age is everything when it comes impactions. Patients from about age 13 to 19 can have their third molars removed predictably and safely with a minimum of trauma. Most of these are full bony impactions. The roots are not fully developed and complications are extremely rare. The early third molar course is a perfect course for dentists who want to remove third molars and avoid complications. The course is a live, interactive surgical course.

I look forward to meeting you at the next course.
