 The Introduction to Veterinary Oral and Periodontal Surgery class is for doctors only and is limited to 8 veterinarians with two instructors and one assistant. This class is approved for 8 hours of continuing education credits.

This class is for veterinarians only and will covers the common techniques needed to deliver the bulk of all dental care required for your patients. Simulated lesions are created on cadaver specimens, and the participants then “treat” the pathology. Each participant has their own work station equipped with everything needed for the class, and will receive a brand new dental instrument set ($140 retail value). No more sharing dull bent instruments in lab!!

This class focuses on oral surgery, covering surgical extraction technique, easy retrieval of fractured roots, repair of oronasal fistulas, introduction to periodontal surgery, local/regional anesthesia and bonded sealants for fractured teeth with exposed vital dentin. Discussions in this class are far-ranging and usually include in-depth discussion of dental economics in veterinary practice. Two instructors and one assistant for eight participants ensures a high level of individual attention. The doctors are never more than a few minutes away from overseeing your work. You don’t have to ask for help, they never stop going from one student to the next. Each participant has a brand-new, sharp, extraction instrument set to use and then take home with them. We provide all other equipment and materials you need, all in good working order. Each participant works at their own work station with their own set of ancillary materials. No sharing of equipment means no waiting around.
