Small Animal Dentistry
The aim of this course is to develop your dental knowledge and skills enabling you to become more confident in your dental work and to expand the range of services you can offer your clients.
Topics covered in the course include: anatomy, recognition and treatment of deciduous dental issues; local anaesthesia; extractions; radiology; periodontal disease; repair of Oro-nasal Fistula and treatment of recently traumatized teeth.

Have a comprehensive understanding of oral anatomy and treatment options for both deciduous and immature adult tooth pathology.
Have a better understanding of analgesia, to ensure a pain free procedure using easy to administer, repeatable and reliable local nerve blocks.

Learn when to take a radiograph and interpret the radiographs you take.
Improve your periodontal skills, make a valuable dental chart to record pathology and treatment, and give clients instructions and recommendations that they follow.
Learn advanced procedures that may be implemented into the general practice including repair of oro-nasal fistulas and treatment of acutely traumatised teeth.
Be in a position to confidently offer clients new procedures that will enhance the health of your patients and advance your practice into the world of advanced veterinary dentistry.
