Dentistry: Theory & Practice
Put your money where the mouth is: invest and upgrade your dentistry skills in companion animal oral care.
This course will whet your appetite to a new world of veterinary dentistry. Increase your ability to diagnose more disease using modern technologies. Offer your clients better outcomes for those pets with oral disease. Manage more cases ‘in-house’ that in the past you used to refer on.
Your tutor will review dental anatomy, the pathophysiology of periodontal disease, the techniques for obtaining diagnostic and high quality radiographs and how to reduce pain and discomfort in your dental patients.
The practical component will include planning and performing surgical extractions. Planning to prevent extraction complications but if they occur, how to manage them and obtain a successful outcome.
At the end of this two-day course, attendees should be able to:
Understand the techniques and steps required to perform a successful extraction
Successfully perform oral surgical procedures including surgical extractions
Identify and correct potential complications arising from oral procedures
Utilise valuable diagnostic tools to identify and treat more oral disease
