Disclaimer

Well, a colleague of mine asked me if I was going to post a disclaimer - and - here it is.

First Point:
I receive no funding, sponsorship, money, or stockoptions for this blog.  I am an Army dentist - plain and simple.

Essentially, this is a personal blog, filled with opinions, experiential data, anecdotal data, maybe some peer reviewed data, and mainly neat ideas to help anyone willing to watch or listen.  Please contact me directly ashley@allthingsdentistry.com if you think I've taken the wrong prong on the fork in the road.  

All data and information provided on this site is for informational purposes only.  I am not responsible for the things you attempt and screw up b/c you watched a video.  

www.allthingsdentistry.com and Ashley Mark makes no representations as to accuracy, completeness, currentness, suitability, or validity of any information on this site and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. All information is provided on an as-is basis.  This weblog does not represent the thoughts, intentions, plans or strategies of my employer. It is solely my opinion.

Also, it's important to point out that although the procedures appear to be simple - and - well - they aren't all that hard, the true skill of a surgeon is the ability to manage post operative complications.  I am not, by any means, providing these videos for you to go out and hammer out a type of bone graft, or other surgical procedure without proper instruction, mentoring, and facilities.  I am also not responsible if you do attempt this procedure and run into problems.  I am, providing you these videos, for you to understand what is involved when you refer a patient to a surgeon and they have selected "x" for a procedure.  Now you have an idea as to what is involved and can appear more educated when you consult a patient.

For example,
Some of the complications that could occur during/after an oral surgery procedure: 
  1. Mandible fracture - which then leads to:
    1. malocclusion, non union, malunion, chronic facial pain, chronic limited range of motion, ICR, osteomyelitis, infection, bisphosphonate necrosis, nerve damage, bleeding, hematoma, airway compromise, MI
  2. Flap Necrosis
  3. Alveolar Necrosis
  4. Gingival Scarring
  5. Hardware failure - screw
  6. Dehiscence
Remember - if any of the above occur - how are YOU going to manage it?  Most likely, you'll refer to an OMS/ER and they'll ask why you were attempting such a procedure.  Remember the above - I am not responsible.


  1. Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL ALL THINGS DENTISTRY OR ASHLEY MARK BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, HOWEVER AND WHEREVER ARISING. 
  2. Jurisdiction and Venue.This Agreement shall be subject to the laws of the province of Nova Scotia, as apply to contracts entered into and performed in Nova Scotia between Nova Scotia residents and without regard to conflicts of laws principles.

Ok - with that out of the way - please enjoy!
