Dental Bites for the Enlightened Practitioner TimeOnline

Dental Bites for the Enlightened Practitioner TimeOnline

Take your dentistry to a more advanced level and improve the health and welfare of your patients.

Periodontal and dental diseases are arguably the most common issues seen in small animal practice, yet many vets feel intimidated or inadequate when faced with a complicated case that may require more than a scale and polish.

This course is designed at an intermediate level for those veterinarians who have had experience in performing dental procedures. It aims to help you understand how to plan and perform efficient, atraumatic (for both you and the patient) extractions, where to place local anaesthetic nerve blocks, and how to take and interpret dental radiographs. Together, these skills will help you to avoid the common pitfalls that lead to complications such as lost roots, fractured roots and fractured jaws. Additionally, you will learn about the treatment options for traumatic malocclusions.

Past Participant:

Fantastic Course! I learnt so much about interpreting dental radiographs, when to extract and local anaesthetics that I now feel more comfortable and confident tackling dentals in general practice! I thoroughly recommend this course!
Dr. Rebecca Robey
