Dentists have the responsibility to establish diagnoses and treatment plans on the basis of indications and need. This requires not only an understanding of oral and maxillofacial pathological conditions, but also an ability to anticipate and predict the development of pathology that may be averted by early treatment before the pathology develops. This presentation will reveal the considerations to be utilized with decision making in regards to the management of third molars for dental patients.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the potential for what types and frequencies of pathology occur with maxillary and mandibular third molars.
