The aim of this two-day practical course is to improve your understanding of oral pathology, available treatment options and clinical decision making in canine and feline dentistry. Surgical extraction techniques for dental patients will be practiced during wet-lab sessions, with a focus on how to avoid common complications and what to do when they occur.

A provision of one cadaver per delegate will allow you to maximise your time spent in the practical sessions and gain valuable hands-on experience with the opportunity for one-on-one guidance from the lecturer across both course days. The course will also include discussions on delivery of dentistry services in general practice including communication with clients, colleagues, and insurance companies to ensure the best clinical outcome for the patient.

Topics to be covered:

  • Review of feline and canine oral pathology including periodontal disease, paradental disease, dental trauma, tooth resorption and the most common oral tumours
  • Extraction techniques: including mechanical principles, extraction planning and applicationĀ 
  • Design and creation of mucogingival flaps for teeth extraction
  • Anaesthesia and analgesia in dental patients, including local and regional anaesthesia
  • Introduction to malocclusions: recognising what is normal and what is not
  • Cadaver based practical sessions covering closed and open extraction techniques

Please note that the dental radiography unit will be available during wet-lab sessions, but dental radiography technique is not covered during this course.

Please note: This course is now sold out.

Our next available course is on 9th and 10th March 2023 find out more here
